PixAlert Introduces First Software Suite to Protect Corporate PCs from Inappropriate, Illegal Images Originating From Any Source

PixAlert Enterprise Helps Firms Avoid Criminal, Civil Claims; Reduces Non-Work Related PC Activity and Upholds Policy Compliance

Westford, Mass., Feb. 22, 2005 — PixAlert, the first software supplier to protect firms’ PCs from inappropriate and illegal images originating from any source, today announced the North American introduction of its flagship product, PixAlert Enterprise.

The new technology was previewed last week at the RSA Conference in San Francisco.

Illegal or inappropriate images on corporate PCs can expose directors, management and employees to criminal and civil claims. In fact, according to The Center for Internet Studies, more than 60 percent of companies have disciplined – and more than 30 percent have terminated – employees for inappropriate uses of the Internet.

The PixAlert Enterprise software suite uses patent-pending technology to deliver a powerful multi-source image detection and analysis solution that provides comprehensive protection against inappropriate and illegal images originating from network entry points and PC add-ons. Such sources may include gateways, media, USB ports, 3G cellular and WiFi hotspots.

By implementing PixAlert Enterprise, organizations can better comply with corporate policies on inappropriate and illegal content. PixAlert helps manage employee computer use effectively, while simultaneously reducing security and legal risks, improving IT resource management, providing a protected working environment and enhancing employee productivity. PixAlert’s unique screen assessment technology powered by f4i delivers non-intrusive content monitoring and the capability to unobtrusively audit suspect computers in the workplace.

“Inappropriate images in the workplace are more than just a nuisance,” said John Nolan, PixAlert, CEO. “Their presence on corporate computers and their dissemination through a network can have severe consequences for an organization, including exposure to litigation, brand damage, financial loss and breach of corporate policies. PixAlert Enterprise is unique in that it not only detects inappropriate and illegal electronic images, but also safeguards against these ‘visual viruses’ originating from any source.”

PixAlert Enterprise is comprised of PixAlert Monitor and PixAlert Auditor:

PixAlert Monitor
PixAlert Monitor provides multi-source image detection and analysis. It resides on all corporate computer assets, watching screen content for inappropriate or illegal image content. Regardless of the source, when an improper image is viewed, a record is created in a machine specific audit log and an immediate alert is sent to the administrator console. When an alert is received, the designated administrator, who can initiate appropriate action, can view a thumbnail representation of the image, along with the machine name, user name, date-time and the program used.

PixAlert Auditor
PixAlert Auditor provides stored image detection and analysis. It is deployed from a server, run locally on a suspect computer or can be deployed to scan multiple computers on a network. It carries out a full audit scan of the images stored on a corporate computer asset and ranks them on the basis of their inappropriateness. Suspect images, which transgress a pre-defined threshold, are presented t
