Tangent Inc. released a new version of Web Hawk, its content filtering solution that aims to save schools and libraries money on update fees while helping them comply with Children's Internet Protection Act requirements.
Web Hawk monitors and prevents access to sites that have adult-oriented, racially sensitive or other harmful material. It works from a central console that can be customized to different environments. Web Hawk also helps universities comply with acceptable use policies.
Web Hawk runs across the enterprise and is managed from a central server. The release has more than 9.5 million unique domains categorized in its database.Take control with new KVM
Aten Technology Inc. introduced a keyboard, video and mouse package designed for medium and large network environments.
The KM0832 CAT5 Matrix, part of Aten's Altusen line, is a 32-port, 8-console KVM switch that lets up to eight users directly access and control as many as 32 computers simultaneously.
The unit lets network administrators manage more than 8,000 computers through daisy-chaining and cascading. KM0832 also features a detachable front panel, so users can mount the KVM near the back of the rack, easing cable management.Track it rugged style
LXE Inc., a developer of rugged mobile-computing solutions, and RF Code Inc., a developer of radio frequency identification asset-tracking solutions and enabling technologies, are offering a hybrid, real-time locating system based on LXE's RX1 rugged lift, truck-mounted RFID reader.
