Pioneer in Internet Filtering Software Adds Significant Enhancement With First-Ever Porn-Filtered Search Engine Feature.

LookSmart today announced the release of Net Nanny 5.1, an updated version of its Internet filtering software, and the first version to include family-safe Web search. Net Nanny 5.1 has a suggested retail price of $39.95 for new buyers of Net Nanny and is a free upgrade for all Net Nanny 5.0 users, available. Net Nanny is the best-known parental control software, used by parents, schools, libraries and other institutions to filter pornographic and other inappropriate content from the Web. Integrating a family-safe search engine into the Net Nanny product continues Net Nanny's track record of raising the bar in offering tools to protect children, being the first company to introduce this critical feature to Internet filtering software.

"Children today are using incredibly powerful search engines to find the best and the worst of the Web," said David Kopp, vice-president and general manager of Net Nanny. "With Net Nanny 5.1 and Net Nanny's family-safe search, parents no longer have to choose between a powerful Internet tool like Web search and protecting their children from adult sites. LookSmart's Net Nanny search delivers relevant, deep search results without the porn."

Net Nanny customers have expressed the need for an Internet search tool that filters out adult content without compromising legitimate searches. Net Nanny search, available on NetNanny.com and as an option through Net Nanny 5.1, is built on a LookSmart-powered search index. Over 70 million pornographic web pages have been filtered out to create a more family-safe environment. With Net Nanny 5.1 installed on their computers, children using Web search for legitimate purposes such as homework and other research-related inquiries, can now safely surf the Internet without the intrusion of offensive and pornographic results.
