Are Your Children In Danger At School?

Many schools do have content filters to protect children from on-line dangers (such as pornography.) These filters generally block web pages that are listed on a database of sites deemed inappropriate. Consider the rapid growth of the Internet, are you content to leave your child's safety to a static list filter or would you demand one which works according to the actual content of the page?

It's no secret that the Internet is a valuable resource for schools, but are your children protected? While the Internet can help children with their studies, it can also bring danger into the classroom. There are many places on the Internet that are not suitable for children and pornographic sites are just one instance that springs to mind. Studies have shown that 9 out of 10 children aged between 8 and 16 have viewed pornography on the Internet. (London School of Ecomonics, 2006) These days, most schools do use content filters to combat this issue, but do these filters work like they should?

The short answer is that some do, to some extent. These filters generally work on a list of potentially dangerous or inappropriate sites that it blocks from browsers. Other filters have a list of acceptable sites and block all others, even when they could be safe and useful. It doesn't take an Internet pro to see that this system isn't foolproof. According to a study done by NetCraft there were over 124,000,000 sites which existed in June 2007. (NetCraft 2007) Are you satisfied that your children will be protected by a simple list? What if the people who make the list miss a dangerous site? What if a new dangerous site appears and before they find it, it's in your child's classroom? The fact is that list-based filters are not the best way to protect your children from the potentially damaging information that they can access on the Internet.

But you don't need to worry, there is another option. Adelaide based company, NetFox, has jumped ahead of these previous-generation filters, including a dynamic, real-time content filter into its Internet management software. This state of the art filter analyses the actual content of every page before it comes onto your child's screen. Assessing each page in real-time provides 100% filtering coverage. "You wouldn't judge a book by its cover so why would you judge a website by its URL? You need to see the content of a web page to get a true understanding of its nature," says Daniel Draper, CEO of NetFox. The NetFox filter allows your children to harness the potential of the Internet as a learning tool while keeping them protected from inappropriate material. So don't allow your school to settle for second rate filters, make sure that they get a content filter that works.
