Optenet to Provide Complimentary Web Filtering Solution to Infosec Attendees

Socially Responsible Organisation to Give Away Free WebFilter PC Solution Worth €39 on Stand H82

London UK, April 21 2009 - Optenet, a global IT security company and provider of high-performance content filtering solutions, will be providing free, one-year licenses for its popular Optenet WebFilter PC product to delegates at Infosecurity Europe 2009.

Optenet first undertook such an initiative to support February’s Safer Internet Day – the annual event to promote safe and responsible use of online technologies particularly among children – where free versions of WebFilter could be downloaded from its website.

Optenet has been prompted to repeat this offer by the alarming rise in Cyber-bullying among children and adolescents through interactive technologies (online games, emails, Internet forums, text messaging, mobile and other electronic devices). Optenet’s WebFilter PC helps parents monitor their children’s Web browsing activity at home and avoid cases of online harassment. Visitors to Optenet’s stand (H82) during the show will receive a complimentary one-year license worth €39.

“Providing free copies of Optenet’s WebFilter PC is a significant step towards protecting children online, in conjunction with awareness and education of the problem itself,” says Optenet’s Regional Director Northern Europe, Kevin Roberts. “We are firmly committed to the protection of surfers of all ages. As an organisation, we cooperate with and support the efforts of the European Commission, as evidenced by our collaboration with CEOP in the UK and recent activity around February’s Safer Internet Day.”

Infosecurity Europe 2009 is taking place at London’s Earls Court exhibition centre from April 28-30.
