FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
with Austin State School to Protect Residents from Pornography
on the Web
MEDIA, PA (October 4, 2006) - Guardware
LLC today announced that Austin State School, a residential facility
for persons with mental retardation, will implement Guardware's
iShield software solution to monitor, identify, block and deter
the display of pornography on student computers.
Austin State School selected iShield for its
high rate of accuracy in blocking offensive images online. With
more than 400 residents, the school is committed to providing
Internet access on its campus but has had difficulty finding the
right software to protect students from pornographic content.
"We receive many of our computers secondhand,
and we don't have a large budget for software additions,"
said Patricia Westfall, residential services coordinator for Austin
State School. "We tested iShield many times, and it worked
without fail. It was also a cost-effective solution for us because
there are no ongoing yearly fees and software updates are free."
"iShield combines text analysis with sophisticated
image detection technology designed to block pornographic material
at the point of display," said Joe Waldron, Managing Director
of Guardware. "It is the perfect solution in an educational
environment like Austin State School because iShield blocks pornographic
images selectively instead of walling off entire Web pages. We
are pleased that the school selected iShield to protect their
students from adult viewing adult content. "
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. The company offers a
full suite of pornography protection systems: iShield blocks
pornography in web browsers, iShield Plus blocks pornography
from all sources (web browsers, email, CD, DVD) and ScreenShieldEnterprise
provides network-wide administration and protection from pornography.
