SCOTTS VALLEY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 13, 2006 -- SurfControl (LSE: SRF), the global leader in Internet protection, today announced that its award-winning CyberPatrol software has been upgraded to provide enhanced protection for children from increasingly sophisticated Internet threats. SurfControl is also currently offering new customers a free three-month subscription to CyberPatrol along with a 20% discount if purchased at the end of this period. CyberPatrol is trusted by parents around the world to monitor and manage Internet access, allowing children to explore the Internet safely.

"SurfControl recognizes the need to provide comprehensive tools to protect children when they use the Internet," said John Dillon, Chief Marketing Officer at SurfControl. "The Internet continues to evolve and the inherent risk to children is enormous. SurfControl is committed to doing everything possible to protect children online."

SurfControl recently partnered with the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), strengthening SurfControl's longstanding and fruitful position in the fight against child exploitation. Consultancy, engineering and marketing support will be key elements of the services supplied to the CEOP by SurfControl as part of this relationship, building on technological assistance previously provided.

CyberPatrol is powered by SurfControl's industry-leading content and Web filtering databases, helping to protect against exposure to inappropriate content and potentially harmful sites.
