Stopping Porn Images Before It Hits You.

Pornography is a $57 billion industry worldwide, with child porn at $3 billion and growing. This is not the forum to speak about the social issues of pornography but in regards to business porn – it is a hazard to your business in several ways.
The possession of child pornography is a felony. Any pornography in your business could be grounds for a harassment suit and it’s a waste of time and distraction overall from your business operations.
“Corporations are, in part, legal custodians of employee health and welfare in the workplace. The prosecution and business disruption organizations face from neglecting to protect staff from inappropriate and undesirable content are dire,” notes Chris Christiansen, program vice president, security products and services, International Data Corporation (IDC). “MailMarshal, with its integrated deep porn scanning engine, is a robust technology solution to block porn at the email gateway and prove due diligence.”

I usually do not write about business development details but I think this is important.
Image Analyzer’s
deep porn scan engine is now fully integrated within MailMarshal SMTP 2006 email messaging solution. Customers can protect their businesses and employees from illegal and undesired image content at the email gateway, before it enters mainstream email circulation.
When MailMarshal software detects images in an email, the deep porn scan engine applies advanced, proprietary algorithms to scan and identify the image’s flesh tone palette ranges, iIncludingng regional skin color variations and to enhance areas of interest such as edge, curvature and body size reduction. These analyses produce a probability output as to an image’s pornographic orientation.
The cost is $1,305 per year for a 25 user-license and goes up from there.
If you find that porn is paralyzing your business – hire the right people and let technology assist with blocking it.
