AmeriChannels Brings Safe4Kidz Parental Control Software to the North American Market

Innovative Security Software Protects 4 to 12-Year-Old Children From Online Dangers, Permitting Freedom to Explore

ST. PAUL, MN--(Marketwire - September 28, 2009) - AmeriChannels, LLC, a strategic consulting company that helps North American and International companies introduce business-to-business and business-to-consumer products to new markets, today announced that it is the North American publisher of Safe4Kidz™ PC security software. Developed by So Protect Me Limited of the United Kingdom, the software promises to protect 4 to 12-year-olds from online dangers.

"We're extremely excited to bring this innovative security product to parents throughout the United States and Canada," said AmeriChannels, LLC CEO Craig Letourneau. "Safe4Kidz recognizes that children of different ages use their computers in a variety of ways. Safe4Kidz is specifically designed to protect 4 to 12-year-olds from accidentally or purposely finding content, websites and language that should not be seen by children."

With Safe4Kidz, children can access great web content and parents can feel secure in the knowledge that their kids are surfing safely, without fear of them stumbling across anything inappropriate. When children are surfing the web, Safe4Kidz blocks offensive words and terms in search results so children can safely use sites like Google and Wikipedia.

Parents don't need to have access to the child's PC to view the applications their children are using and to monitor how the PC is being used. Safe4Kidz provides a simple console -- accessible from any browser -- that allows parents to see the child's activity, what has been blocked from them and why it was blocked. And, if there's more than one Safe4Kidz-protected PC in a family, they can all be managed from one location.

Added Letourneau, "Parents are continually concerned about how to protect their young children from inappropriate content and websites. They recognize they can't always watch over their kid's shoulder while they use a PC to explore and learn. And, because there is no set up out of the box, Safe4Kidz is easy to use and saves the parent's valuable time while protecting their children as soon as the software is installed."
