Blue Coat Systems, a provider of web security and WAN optimization solutions, has introduced the K9 Web Protection Browser for iOS devices. It’s a free, family-safe web browser available at the Apple App Store.
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, according to Steve Daheb, chief marketing officer and senior vice president, Blue Coat Systems. In addition, the browser protects against phishing and malware., he adds.
As with Blue Coat’s K9 Web Protection software for Mac and PC computers, 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.
