iomartcloud, iomart Group’s cloud solutions brand, is celebrating 10 years as a member of the Internet Watch Foundation.
As an industry partner, iomartcloud uses the daily list produced by the IWF to block known criminal child sexual abuse content from the computers, laptops, mobile phones and tablet devices used in the schools, businesses and other organisations across the UK that benefit from its services.
Netintelligence, iomartcloud’s award-winning and Government approved web filtering software, incorporates the websites highlighted by the IWF’s daily list so they can be blocked at the gateway. Netintelligence is the only such filtering software to be awarded the Child Safety Online Kitemark by the British Standards Institute, thanks to the outstanding levels of protection it provides.
Susie Hargreaves, IWF Chief Executive, says: “iomartcloud has been supporting the fight against online child sexual abuse content for a decade and for that the whole IWF team are immensely grateful. Since 2003 less than 1% of known child sexual abuse content has been hosted in the UK, dramatically down from 18% in 1996. By working together we have helped make the UK one of the harshest environments for hosting child sexual abuse content.
“iomartcloud’s on-going support and application of the IWF list will continue to protect their customers across the UK. I am delighted that our organisations have forged such a strong partnership since 2003 and hope this will continue for many decades to come.”
Netintelligence is powerful enough to provide protection to some of the most vulnerable users of the internet while being flexible enough to be adapted to suit the requirements of any organisation routinely using the internet for its business.
Bill Strain, director of iomartcloud, said: “Our membership of the Internet Watch Foundation is vital because iomartcloud’s products are used by businesses, schools and local authorities to protect their staff and employees from potentially criminal material on the internet. We’re proud to be a supporter of the IWF as it continues to lead the way in combating online child sexual abuse content.”
