Brisbane, Australia, June 22, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- In light of Child Safety Week it has become evident that a significant number of parents are failing to ensure their children’s safety whilst online. Due to the lack of time for supervising Internet activities and not using Internet filters, an alarming number of children are being exposed to unsuitable material and online predators.
Australian company, Race River has developed the most reliable and technologically advanced internet filter Integard to ensure the safety of both children and adolescents whilst ‘surfing the net’.
The filtering software blocks inappropriate websites and monitors chat conversations to track any sign of ‘grooming’ by online predators and other suspicious behaviour. Integard gives the parent complete control over internet access for all applications on their computer with the ability to limit time spent on the net and access altogether. Integard is by far the most configurable and powerful filter on the market giving parents the option to make the filter even stricter than it already is using customisable keyword lists, allowed site lists, blocked site lists and filter sensitivity settings. Whilst on the other hand the Integard security can be loosened up and the software utilised as more of a monitoring service. It also caters for multiple users allowing different filter levels for different members of the family.
Race River spokesperson, Mr Daniel Millerson said that there is a lack of awareness when it comes to the harsh realities that children can be faced with whilst on the internet.
“Cases which involve children being affected by online predators and other potentially harmful material is a lot more common than most people like to believe.” Mr Millerson said.
“However, together with and increase of parental supervision and content filters, the internet will soon become a safer place for children and adolescents.” Mr Millerson continued.
Throughout Child Safety Week 23-29 June 2008, Integard can be ordered or downloaded for 50% off its original price.
