SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 15, 2012) - EdgeWave Inc., a leader in Secure Content Management (SCM), today announced that its iPrism Web Security solution has been awarded the prestigious "Award of Excellence" by Technology & Learning Magazine for the third time. A panel of more than 30 educators, who tested more than 160 entries, chose iPrism based on criteria including ease-of-use, accuracy and effectiveness, unique technology capabilities, overall features, functionality and value to the education market.
"We are very honored to be receiving this recognition from Technology and Learning Magazine, for the third time," said Steve Kelley, EdgeWave Sr. VP of Product Development. "Our commitment to K-12 school Internet safety is reflected in iPrism features such as our proprietary circumvention defense and exclusive YouTube for Schools support. And our revolutionary new Social Media Security solution, which we added this year, demonstrates our continued commitment to our Education customers."
EdgeWave Social Media Security creates a safe environment for social networking interactions at school that not only helps educators stop problems such as cyberbullying and student self-harm, it allows them to fulfill new FCC/CIPA requirements that encourage social media engagement and mandate training for students and staff.
"As schools continue to have to do more with less, buying the right solution for your district needs is more important than ever," says Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director for NewBay Media's Tech & Learning Group. "Tech & Learning is proud to present these recommended products that have been put to the test by our experienced educational team of judges."
The Technology & Learning "Award of Excellence" is a 30-year-old recognition program that honors software, hardware, network, and Web products that break new ground as well as those that added significant enhancements to proven education tools.
