Cyren is Friendly WiFi approved

LONDON and MCLEAN, Va., Dec. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CYREN (NASDAQ: CYRN) today announced it received accreditation as a "Friendly WiFi" approved provider in the UK.

The designation scheme, which launched in July 2014, was developed by the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) with support by the government and is administered by trade organization RDI. The accreditation, designated by the scheme's official logo (attached), verifies that CYREN's cyber security solutions block known pornography and child abuse websites for public WiFi deployments.

CYREN partners and users can now offer the third-party designation as additional assurance that CYREN is committed to enabling safe WiFi experiences for children and families where its technology is relied upon in public areas. Several WiFi providers and channel partners already depend on CYREN cyber security solutions to protect thousands of public WiFi installations in UK hotels, schools, sport arenas, universities and various other types of public areas.

"We are delighted to welcome on board CYREN, a leading Internet security technology company dedicated to the ongoing challenges of keeping the internet safe," said Beverley Smith, Director at RDI. "Partnering with CYREN will help to increase our reach of Friendly WiFi by working closely together to promote the Friendly WiFi scheme to their customers. Having CYREN as an accredited provider is great news for the RDI. By working with CYREN we are able to give access to their fantastic solutions to both venues and providers of WiFi services. Both companies are committed to providing a reputable and robust solution for keeping children and young people safe online."

"CYREN is pleased to join a program such as Friendly WiFi that consistently emphasizes and reinforces the importance of offering safe Internet use for children," said Lior Samuelson, CEO and Chairman of the Board at CYREN. "We're proud that CYREN's innovative, time-tested URL filtering technologies can help provide peace of mind for families on the go."
