DeepNines, SurfControl Create Smart Web Filter

DeepNines Technologies has teamed with security software giant SurfControl to produce an integrated application for the education market that will intelligently filter inappropriate Web addresses, DeepNine announced Tuesday. The new software incorporates DeepNines' Security Edge Platform with SurfControl's URL-filtering technology and will be marketed as Security Edge Platform iTrust. Unlike most Web filters, which are often fooled by proxies, iTrust will see through such ruses and promises to be CIPA-compliant. SurfControl software protects more than 16 million users and 25,000 customers worldwide. Founded in 1999, DeepNines is a network security software developer headquartered in Dallas, Texas.
