Parental internet control software available for Windows 7
Brightfilter, a supplier of internet security solutions for protecting children online, has announced that its Parental Control software is now compatible with Windows 7. Brightfilter's database, powered by McAfee technology, is maintained online to ensure real time updates and keep the whole family continually protected against illicit content, malware, viruses and identity theft. The same database powers over 10,000 UK schools, providing parents with the same high level of security that protects thousands of pupils every day.

Brightfilter Parental Control protects all family members from inappropriate content online and risks such as identity theft, spam and phishing. Offensive and harmful sites are identified using data from established organisations including McAfee, the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) and the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF.) Over 90 website categories are available to provide comprehensive protection against a wide range of inappropriate content, including illegal extreme material, criminal activity, drugs, sexual content, violence and profanity. Parents can also block social networking sites and instant messaging services to prohibit children from engaging with strangers online.

Brightfilter Parental Control is easy to use and can be set up in less than a minute. Users can customise the software by creating individual profiles for each family member to filter internet content according to user age. Parents can also limit access by time of day, to stop children from surfing the web at night or during homework time. Brightfilter surpasses traditional web filtering solutions with its fast and efficient online database. With around the clock updates and data gathered in over 60 languages, families can be sure that they are receiving the very best level of protection.

The software's Remote Control feature allows parents to update family profiles from any location with an internet connection. These changes automatically apply to a maximum of three PCs in a household using Brightfilter, offering a quick and easy solution to comprehensive online protection. Brightfilter also offers free telephone and email support to provide users with assistance if needed.

Parents can also benefit from powerful protection as Brightfilter immediately identifies and blocks:

* Websites that host viruses and spyware to reduce the risk of harmful infections
* Sites that contain self installing applications such as Trojans that can take over computer settings
* Phishing websites that capture user details for the purpose of fraud and identity theft
* Spam blogs and URLs to prevent potentially offensive, fraudulent sites and unwanted material
* Links in hoax emails that attempt to steal user account information, to stop user data from falling into the wrong hands and to block mis-clicked or misleading URLS on the web and in email

A free trial of Brightfilter Parental Control is available on the company's website.
