FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
File Audit Facility
Software Praised by Computer Forensic and IT Security Professionals
- Guardware's USB-based
Software Detects and Reports Illicit Content Stored on Computers
MEDIA, PA (October 24,
2007) - Guardware LLC today announced market traction for its
recently released File Audit Facility (FAF). FAF identifies
and generates a report listing potentially pornographic images,
video and music stored on Windows®-based PCs and Laptops.
Security and computer forensic experts are utilizing FAF to audit
computers to help corporate and government agencies enforce sexual
harassment and use of assets policies.
"Corporations need tools and processes
to control misuse of computer assets to protect themselves and
their employees against liabilities," stated Sherman K. Nowlin,
president of Surveillance Technology Group Inc. (STG). "FAF
is an easy-to-use and cost effective way to routinely audit computer
systems to check for violations of policy and misuse and to retrieve
information on how employees are using their time and computers."
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.
FAF is delivered on a portable USB (thumb) drive which allows
security teams to quickly and easily examine any PC or laptop.
It leaves no software footprint on audited computers, so employees
are not aware of the process and possible evidence is not damaged,
destroyed, or otherwise compromised during the audit procedure.
"Corporations have legal and fiduciary responsibilities to
enforce sexual harassment and acceptable usage policies,"
commented Nowlin. "A regular and effective audit program
will help identify misuse, protect against potential legal claims,
and boost employee morale."
"Security and computer forensic experts like STG are able
to help their corporate and government clients 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.
