New Website Facilitates Safe Streaming Media in the Classroom, Earns Praise and Receives Over 1500 Beta Requests From U.S. Schools Within First Two Weeks

ORANGE, CA--(Marketwire - February 24, 2011) - M86 Security, the global expert in real-time Web and email threat protection, has earned industry praise for its M86 VuSafe by eSchool News, the leading publication for school decision makers, as its "Site of the Week." Announced just earlier this month, M86 VuSafe is an online Website that allows educators to search, store, organize, show, and share videos, from YouTube and other video sites, within a safe learning environment.

"It's an honor to be featured as eSchool News' Site of the Week," says William Kilmer, chief marketing officer, M86 Security. "This accolade from a leading publication shows that educators value being able to use educational videos to enhance the learning experience via websites like YouTube in the classroom, and are eager to be able to do so without the worry of the inappropriate content popping up on the screen."

With the announcement of the M86 VuSafe website, M86 has created a buzz in the educational industry. For the first time, sharing and viewing approved videos and streaming video content in the classroom will be easier and safer. Noting increasing budget constraints and growing classroom sizes, M86 VuSafe, will be offered as a free service to the US K-12 education market in April 2011.

Proving that there is a need for a service such as VuSafe, within the first 14 days after the announcement, M86 received more than 1500 beta requests from U.S. schools. As of Feb. 21, this number has risen to over 2000.
