SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SonicWALL, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNWL), a leading provider of continuous data protection and network, Web and email security solutions, today announced that the Danish Minister of Culture, Brian Mikkelsen, has chosen a solution based on SonicWALL's Content Management System (CSM) 2100 CF to prevent inappropriate Internet sites from being accessed from children's libraries across Denmark. At the request of the Danish Minister, the Danish National Library Authority and The National Procurement Ltd. (Denmark) evaluated the various solutions available in the Danish marketplace. They chose SonicWALL CSM in conjunction with ATEA Denmark A/S -- one of the leading, independent providers of IT infrastructure in the Nordic region. SonicWALL's content security appliance protects networks from a wide range of Internet threats, such as viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, e-mail-based fraud attempts and illicit or unproductive Web content. By deploying the device on the libraries' network they can enjoy the benefits of the most sophisticated protection available today. All incoming data is scanned in real-time at the gateway to block threats before they can do any damage. The CSM 2100 CF receives up-to-the-minute signatures about the latest Internet security risks via a continuous connection to SonicWALL's dynamically updated signature database. "Wherever there is access to the Internet, there is a potential risk for children. SonicWALL's research indicates that many people accidentally see porn or other unacceptable Web sites because they typed in the wrong URL. Our content filtering technology is designed to make using the Internet safe and productive for users of all ages," said Fredrik Arveskar, territory manager, Nordics and Baltics. "With this solution in place, teachers and parents can be confident that children won't be distracted by the wrong kind of material." The Danish National Library Authority explained in an announcement earlier this year that they chose the SonicWALL/ATEA solution because of its functionality, user friendliness and ease of administration. ATEA is also offers a high level of IT support for children's libraries throughout Denmark. The 200 Danish libraries in the system will be able to purchase and install a pre-configured CSM 2100 from ATEA, or opt for onsite installation by ATEA. Libraries will be able to decide locally which sites or categories of sites to which they wish to allow and prevent access. The URL rating and filtering technology is continually updated by SonicWALL's signature writing team, freeing the libraries of any day-to-day maintenance requirement. About SonicWALL, Inc.
