Internet protection for children with Net Nanny

Avanquest Software : 16 January, 2009  (New Product)
Parental control software from Avanquest delivers ability for parents to filter inappropriate content for their children and monitor their on-line activities
National statistics show that by 2008, 16 million homes in the UK had internet access, representing 65% of the population. Each year this statistic increases significantly. With the added households gaining access to the internet each year, more and more children are exposed to the consequential dangers. In recent years we have seen a growing awareness of the risks children face when using the internet. A BBC report recently indicated that:

* "Three out of four children have seen images on the internet that disturbed them, an NSPCC poll suggests".
* "Almost one in four British youngsters has received unwanted sexual comments online".
* A study by The London School of Economics of 7,393 children also showed that children "tended to go online younger - many from the age of six".

For adults, having the internet at our fingertips has been a life-changing success. The freedom of the internet has been encouraged by most until recent years. There have been many discussions debating different ways in which we can protect children from the dangers of the internet. Culture Secretary Andy Burnham has suggested age-rating websites. Many suggestions like these are made but very few are actually enforced.

Avanquest Solutions offers the answer as the most trusted name in the business, Net Nanny, release version 6.0 of their award-winning parental control software.

Net Nanny's dynamic filtering engine ensures that children and teenagers won't be exposed to pornography, hate sites, questionable chat rooms and other unsuitable content. You can configure Net Nanny 6.0 to block online game and gambling sites, and ensure that only computer games with parental ratings are installed. A set-up assistant helps parents and guardians determine which online activities are appropriate based on the user's age or maturity.

Net Nanny 6.0 provides safety on the World Wide Web, and also lesser known but equally unsafe parts of the Internet like the Usenet, Peer-to-Peer downloading networks, Chat Rooms, Instant Messages, FTP, Forums and email.

The best way to protect children online is with parental control software. Net Nanny 6.0 presents an unrivalled solution.
