SmoothWall supports IWF fight against obscene images.

Smoothwall : 10 July, 2007  (Company News)
Internet Watch Foundation database adds strength to SmoothWall's internet filtering software.
Content filter specialists SmoothWall has recently strengthened its suite of web security solutions in a new affiliation with the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF). As Associate Members, SmoothWall is showing a clear commitment to the industry-led IWF, and its government-authorised initiatives to combat the availability of child sexual abuse images and other criminally obscene content on the internet.

Having pioneered the Dynamic Content Analysis technology that underpins its Guardian web filters, SmoothWall is now augmenting its array of web weaponry with the IWF's CAIC (Child Abuse Images and Content) database. This dynamic list includes all child sexual abuse sites known to the IWF's 'Hotline' and is updated twice daily.

Peter Robbins, CEO IWF, said: "We are very pleased to welcome SmoothWall as associate members. Industry support is crucial to our work and the success we've had is testament to such partnerships. We look forward to working with SmoothWall in the future as we maintain our achievements in the UK as well as our commitment to sharing expertise and best practice around the world."

As an independent foundation, the IWF relies on the support of its members to fund its activities and its approach has been warmly welcomed by internet security professionals. George Lungley, SmoothWall Managing Director, said: "SmoothWall is proud to be working with the IWF. Their database adds an extra level of security to our web filters and I respect their recognition of illegal internet content as a global issue, in need of international dialogue."
