FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
File Audit Facility
Delivers USB-based PC Pornography Protection for Computers
Guardware's New Software Detects and Reports Illicit Content -
MEDIA, PA (September
10, 2007) - Guardware LLC today announced File Audit Facility
(FAF), a new turnkey solution for identifying potentially pornographic
images, video and music stored on Windows®-based PCs and Laptops.
The latest release in the company's full suite of pornography
protection systems, FAF is delivered on a portable USB (thumb)
drive and is designed to allow managers to audit computers for
inappropriate usage and unauthorized file storage.
FAF uses Guardware's award-winning image-detection engine to identify
potentially inappropriate images or files stored on computers,
and then provides a complete report of findings. It spots objectionable
content in image files, video files and HTML Web pages stored
on hard drives, removable drives and CDs. The application also
lists all music files, so that managers can monitor possible illegal
downloading and unauthorized storage usage.
Network World recently reviewed FAF and awarded it 4 out of 5
Stars. "In our tests, the software could find and detect
all of the objectionable content we purposely placed on our test
machine," stated Keith Shaw, Cool Tools Guy. "It can
be difficult and uncomfortable for an IT manager to monitor whether
employees are storing inappropriate material on company equipment.
While most companies have Internet-usage policies, enforcing the
policies can get tricky."
Designed to allow companies of any size to easily
audit computers for potential misuse, FAF does not require technical
skills to administer. It is a portable and self-contained application
- no software is loaded on the target computer during the audit
process -making the audit process invisible to employees.
"FAF helps companies enforce web acceptable
use policies, monitor asset usage and virtually eliminate pornography
from being stored or transmitted throughout the organization,"
commented Ian McKinley, President and CEO of Guardware. "We
are pleased to provide information technology, human resource
or other managers a full-function easy-to-administer and rapid
solution for auditing company-issued computer equipment and protecting
against misuse and potential liabilities."
Guardware is a software solution provider committed to developing
and marketing innovative personal computer applications that improve
productivity and security. Guardware's products have received
numerous awards as well as strong press reviews from technology
publications like PC Magazine and Network World. The company offers
a full suite of pornography protection systems: iShield
