Following the successful anti-piracy campaign, “Bit Piracy at its Own Game” initiated last year, BitDefender®, an award-winning provider of innovative anti-malware security solutions, continues its academic program, announcing today the availability of BitDefender security software in National Book Store branches in Metro Manila, Philippines, starting July 20, 2009. National Book Store is the Philippine's largest retail chain of bookstores, frequently visited by parents and students looking for school and office supplies.
In today’s evolved world, working parents often allow older children to look after themselves for the few hours between the end of the school day and the day’s end at work. Even the most perceptive and mature children can fall prey to temptation and to the guise of online predators.
To help curb lure of online temptations, one of the main features of BitDefender’s 2009 Internet Security and Total Security is Parental Control, an easy-to-use and powerful tool which allows parents to monitor, restrict and filter their child’s computer use. The main modules of parental control feature is a time limit component (access to computer, web or to some applications is limited to certain time periods for predetermined users) and a web filtering component, which blocks inappropriate content in several categories.
“BitDefender is proud to partner with National Book Store – aiding their commitment to provide security solutions within parents’ reach," said Vitor Souza, BitDefender Global Communications Manager. "Parental Control resolves the dilemma of how to avoid harmful content and potentially dangerous communication with strangers, helping parents set healthy and safe parameters for their children.”
