PureSight tops child Internet safety

Online child safety software vendor, PureSight, has been awarded top spot for the second consecutive year for its parental control tool which is designed to protect children online.

PureSight received the award as a result of Owl's performance in the European Commission's SIP Benchmark II study, which aims to benchmark the main functionalities, effectiveness, and usability of parental control tools in Europe.

Puresight was handed the award at the Internet Industry Association's (IIA's) Gala Dinner at Doltone House in Sydney.

"The fact that PureSight maintained first position for all age groups reflects [its] ongoing commitment to protecting children online," PureSight CEO, Ouri Azulay, said.

The product, PureSight Owl, is an accredited IAA Family Friendly Filter that provides parents with the ability to protect children from cyberbullying, Internet predators, and unsolicited adult-orientated web sites.

The tools within the sweet are based on Active Chat Inspector (ACI) and Active Content Recognition (ACR) technologies, which promise to identify, classify, and block undesirable content and contacts.
