SurfControl E-Mail Filter 4.0 With Optional "Virtual Learning Agent" Gives
Educators An Intelligent Tool To Help Safeguard Networks and Students

CONGLETON (17 June 2002) - SurfControl, the world's number one Web and
e-mail filtering company, today launched the most comprehensive e-mail
content management software for schools, helping educational institutions
protect sensitive information. SurfControl E-mail Filter 4.0 protects
school networks against risks, including viruses and inappropriate content,
and offers an intelligent, new tool that can prevent sensitive information
from being inadvertently released.

The new e-mail software enhances SurfControl's total content security
solution for schools, including the SurfControl Web Filter 4.0 and Adaptive
Reasoning Technologies (ART), advanced tools that learn types of content
that are important to organizations and help keep that content secure.

"SurfControl E-mail Filter 4.0 is a powerful tool that helps schools,
colleges and universities protect confidential documents and safeguard
networks against dangerous risks," said Steve Purdham, SurfControl's CEO.
"It is part of the complete security solution offered by SurfControl. These
institutions have a requirement to manage Web and e-mail access, provide
safe Internet experiences for students and protect networks from disastrous
viruses and inappropriate content."

SurfControl E-mail Filter comes with a unique RiskFilter that automatically
stops the delivery of spam and other digital junk such as hoaxes, chain
letters, jokes, and graphic file attachments that contain offensive material
and open the school to potential liability or network vulnerability.

The latest version of the software also offers a new, add-on component
called the Virtual Learning Agent (VLA). The VLA is an intelligent tool
that learns an organisation's specific information and then keeps sensitive
documents from being accidentally, or purposely, e-mailed to unintended or
unauthorised recipients - a capability particularly important to schools
that maintain personal student records.
