Blue Coat Systems introduced the K9 Web Protection Browser for iOS, a free, downloadable, family-safe Web browser for Apple iPads, iPhones and Web-enabled iPod Touch devices.
The browser provides immediate and highly accurate protection from content that is not appropriate for young children, including pornography, hate/violence, illegal drugs and gambling. In addition, the browser protects against phishing and malware. It is simple to install and use.
The K9 Web Protection Browser uses the company’s cloud-based WebPulse service that provides users with up-to-the-moment protection from objectionable content and threats, including phishing, malware and malicious content.
The WebPulse service also continually categorizes new and evolving Web content, giving parents the ability to immediately block objectionable material.
The WebPulse service is driven by the real-time Web experience of over 70 million users around the world so that it can quickly find and identify new content and block the latest sources of objectionable content, phishing and malware sites. For example, on a typical day the WebPulse service identifies over 110,000 pages of new or previously uncategorized pornography and adult content.
The K9 Web Protection Browser runs in the place of Safari or other browsers that lack content controls necessary to keep children and families safe online.
