(Perth, Scotland - 08 November 2004) UK company, GuardianBox, have launched a new computer hardware solution that guarantees automatic 24hr protection against the growing range of external threats, including viruses, spam (unsolicited email) and network intrusion (hackers). The system offers further benefits in the monitoring and control of Internet usage.

According to company MD, Keith Fergie, ‘more and more users are signing up for the faster, ’always on’ internet connections such as broadband and cable, not realising that their computer is suddenly visible to the world. GuardianBox sits literally between the Internet and your computer network, providing all the protection you’ll ever need.’

Designed primarily for educational establishments and small to medium businesses, GuardianBox automatically downloads full protection against the 132,000+ known viruses, ‘worms’ and ‘Trojan Horses’ from the moment it is plugged in. And unlike traditional software solutions, it does not require the user to remember to update the protection manually. GuardianBox updates automatically every hour.
For resellers and integrators, this is a wonderful opportunity, adds Keith Fergie. “Because the GuardianBox is a fit & forget solution, it will reduce your support incidents, it is the best value broadband security solution in the marketplace and it provides partners with decent margins both on the capital cost and the monthly service revenue

In addition, the system’s built-in anti-spam capability blocks and destroys unsolicited emails before they reach your computer. And the commercial grade ‘firewall’ stops Internet sabotage and theft of information by making computers invisible to unwanted users.

The intelligent predictive web cache facility that is an integral part of every GuardianBox, saves, on average, 30% of the bandwidth consumed. This represents a significant advantage for the user and their ISP.

For businesses, GuardianBox can enhance productivity and management control, and offer the added peace of mind that your business integrity and viability are never compromised.

For parents and educational establishments, GuardianBox has particular benefits. It constantly monitors and records all Internet usage – who is looking at what — and provides web content filtering so teachers and parents can bar access to pornography or whatever they choose. Internet access times can also be tailored to a school’s needs with unauthorized or ‘out of hours’ usage blocked automatically.
