Fort Hall Casino
Selects Guardware's ScreenShield Software to Protect PCs
MEDIA, PA (October 30,
2006) - Guardware LLC today announced that Fort Hall Casino has
selected the company's ScreenShield software for enterprise-wide
protection against digital pornography. After a year-long review
of available solutions, the casino chose ScreenShield for its
ability to block illicit images at the point of display, shielding
employees from accidental exposure to pornographic content.
The Fort Hall Casino has installed ScreenShield
across 150 PCs in the company's network to protect employees from
viewing potentially illicit images - inadvertently or on purpose.
ScreenShield, winner of multiple international awards for software
excellence, detects, monitors, logs and blocks offensive material
regardless of the source. By pairing sophisticated image-detection
with text analysis, the software pinpoints pornographic content
on the Internet, in emails and in stored electronic files. ScreenShield
then records user activity and/or prevents offensive content from
being displayed on screens, depending on an administrator's settings.
ScreenShield offers flexible capabilities and complements any
existing Internet security programs that may already be in place.
"The Gaming Commission has a zero-tolerance
policy when it comes to pornography in the workplace, and we searched
for a long time to find a software program that would help us
achieve compliance," said Michael Christy, Information Technology
Director, Fort Hall Casino. "We were excited to discover
ScreenShield's powerful detection and prevention engine, which
has met all of our criteria for protection against electronic
pornography. ScreenShield only blocks material that is inappropriate,
and does not wall off entire websites that may include useful

Casino in implementing technology that keeps employees more productive
and reduces employer liability."
The ScreenShield enterprise solution is designed
to protect networked environments and is installed in a variety
of businesses and public institutions - from casinos to corporations,
and libraries to law firms. The software features capabilities
that streamline implementation and administration in networked
environments and improve protection against illicit images, including
those embedded in videos. This gives organizations with multiple
computers a full-function and easy-to-administer solution for
managing on-line security.
