K9 Web Protection Browser Provides Up-to-the-Moment Online Safety

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Blue Coat Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:BCSI), a leading provider of Web security and WAN optimization solutions, today introduced the K9™ Web Protection Browser for iOS, a free, downloadable, family-safe Web browser for Apple iPads, iPhones and Web-enabled iPod Touch devices. 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. In addition, the browser protects against phishing and malware. It is simple to install and use.

“The K9 Web Protection Browser leverages the power and intelligence of Blue Coat’s leading Web security technology to keep children and families safe online wherever they access the Internet.”

“With the popularity of iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone mobile devices as gifts for children this holiday season, the door is wide open for them to fall victim to the dangers of the Internet,” said Steve Daheb, chief marketing officer and senior vice president, Blue Coat Systems. “The K9 Web Protection Browser leverages the power and intelligence of Blue Coat’s leading Web security technology to keep children and families safe online wherever they access the Internet.”

As with Blue Coat’s K9 Web Protection software for PC and Mac 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. The WebPulse service is driven by the real-time Web experience of over 70 million users around the world so that it can quickly find and identify new content and block the latest sources of objectionable content, phishing and malware sites. For example, on a typical day the WebPulse service identifies over 110,000 pages of new or previously uncategorized pornography and adult content.

The K9 Web Protection Browser runs in the place of Safari or other browsers that lack content controls necessary to keep children and families safe online. As with K9 Web Protection for PC and Mac computers, Blue Coat provides the K9 Web Protection Browser free of charge to families and individuals as a community service.

The K9 Web Protection Browser is available as a free download from the Apple iTunes App Store.
