Contentbarrier X5 parental control software introduced by Intego.
Intego, a Macintosh security specialist, announced on Tuesday (6 January) a new version of its ContentBarrier X5 parental control software.
According to the company, ContentBarrier X5 protects children from adult web sites, predatory chats or suggestive e-mail. Parents choose which categories of content to block and can block specific applications or protocols, including peer-to-peer, instant messaging, e-mail, games, streaming audio and video. Parents can also set up schedules with time limits so their children can only access the Internet at specific times.
The solution records full logs of all users' Internet activity and can send logs and notifications by e-mail to parents or administrators. The program can take screenshots of user activity at regular intervals and record all text typed. In addition, a new web administration feature enables parents to see what children are doing from any computer with an Internet connection. Parents can see full logs and can allow or block websites that kids have visited or tried to access.
The software is also suitable for schools and universities wanting to control the content their students access. It enables teachers and administrators to manage numerous users on a single Mac and makes viewing logs, even for multiple users, simple and efficient, the company said.
No pricing details were disclosed.
