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
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
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
