CronLab today announced it received status award as a "Friendly WiFi" Approved Partner
Friendly WiFi, 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 certification, designated by the official ‘Friendly WiFi’ symbol, verifies that CronLab’s web filter solutions block known pornography and child abuse websites for WiFi deployments and connected device manufacturers worldwide.
CronLab can now display the third-party designation as additional assurance that CronLab is committed to enabling safe WiFi experiences for children and families where its technology is relied upon over WiFi or on connected devices worldwide. Several WiFi providers and channel partners already depend on CronLab web filter solutions across their deployments to enjoy a safe internet browsing experience and so far, the solution has been installed in over 2.5 million devices – as a trusted value-adding choice.
"We are delighted to welcome on board CronLab, a leading Internet security technology company dedicated to the ongoing challenges of keeping the internet safe," said Beverley Smith, Director at RDI. "Partnering with CronLab will help to increase our reach of Friendly WiFi by working closely together to promote Friendly WiFi to their customers. Having CronLab as an Approved Partner is great news for the RDI. By working with CronLab we are able to give access to their fantastic solutions to both venues, channel partners and providers of WiFi services. Both companies are committed to providing a reputable and robust solution for keeping children and young people safe online."
"CronLab is pleased to be the first Friendly WiFi Approved Partner level technology integrator, and as such to join a program that consistently emphasizes and reinforces the importance of offering safe Internet use for children" said Markus Berglund, CronLab CTO. He added: "we are very proud that CronLab's innovative, time-tested URL filtering based technologies can help provide protection and peace of mind for families on the go."
