Parents of the IT savvy younger generation in Bangladesh should now be able to take a sigh of some relief as Kaspersky Lab introduces 'Safe Kids' in the country. Officextracts, the distributor of Kaspersky Lab in Bangladesh organized a Press Conference at the BIJF conference room to launch the Internet security solution product on Wednesday (Nov 29).
"We responded to the demand of time and it was also part of our responsibility" said Prabeer Sarkar, CEO of the distribution operations. He referred to the plight of concerned parents during the recent hype on Blue Whale, adding that parents were already getting more concerned as the children were already engaging, adopting and merging with the digital lifestyle.
The Internet is already a part of their education and activity. It also has pros and cons. But avoiding or not having access to the Internet is not a solution. Awareness and security online can keep the children safe. Kaspersky 'Safe Kids' is a focused and specialized solution to child safety on the Internet.
Kaspersky 'Safe Kids' keeps children away from digital dangers. It guards against online risks, helps to manage child's device usage time, and keeps parents posted on the child's location real-time, alerting the parents on mobile phones if the child crosses a specified safe zone.
It helps monitor a child's public Facebook activity, Android calls and SMS. It is one package that can help parents in protecting and monitoring child in a digital world.
"Awareness is the primary step to cyber security. Kaspersky will campaign a lot in Bangladesh for child safety on the Internet. 'Safe Kids' is going to be a revolutionary product or tool for parents to keep their children safe. I am very excited to introduce this solution for parents in Bangladesh. It is a relief for the parents. They no longer need to block their children from the Internet", Sarkar also adds.
Kaspersky Lab will also launch a support channel for Safe Kids where parents will be able to consult and will get suggestions for its effective use.
