How to protect yourself and your company network from Ransomeware.

How to protect yourself and your company network from Ransomeware. …or how I laugh in the face of scrip kiddies! I’ve been building, and managing networks of 75 – 150 user, multi-site, primarily Windows based corporate networks for about twenty years, plus my work with Kibosh. I keep a tight reign over the data under my care, but even so I’ve been hit with a few malware / ransomeware attacks over the years. I think that no matter how tight…

A Disney Circle review.

  Disney has, since around 2016, muscled it’s way into the Parental Control (P.C.) market with their Circle product. They have unlimited funds, a global marketing empire, and have put ads for this product everywhere. Disney Circle is sold in virtually every retail channel. I’ve helped many parents remotely configure their routers, and from time to time have been presented with a Disney Circle ad when trying to log into Netgear routers! The marketing is slick, and the product is sold…

What exactly is Safe Search?

Search engines display results that match your keywords. Sometimes, explicit content will appear in your search results, as well as image and video searches. SafeSearch is a feature in most search engines that allows you filter your search results and adjust the strictness of the SafeSearch feature. Although SafeSearch is effective, it’s also dangerously easy to disable. Additionally, it’s important to make sure it’s enabled for each search engine that you use.  Further, even if you have enabled SafeSearch for…

Parental Controls – Apple Music vs. Spotify

Parental Controls – Apple Music vs. SpotifyI have been an avid user of Spotify for years, and recently my 10 year old Triplets have begun to develop musical interests of their own.  The logical progression, for me, was to upgrade to Spotify Premium for Family which affords each family member their own account and individual playlists.  After using the service for a few months, I noticed a gaping hole.  Spotify does not offer any form of parental controls, which means…

Do you need local antivirus?

We have posted on this blog before that you should not be paying for local antivirus if you are using Kibosh to protect your network. You don’t need to. Because in addition to our proprietary pornography filtering, Kibosh delivers enterprise-grade Malware, Phishing, Torrent and illegal proxy blocking. Having worked as Network Engineer for over 20 years, I believe that the only way to really protect your devices these days is with a service like Kibosh or OpenDNS which blocks access…

What constitutes a quality Internet content filtering solution?

When we shop for a Parental Control solution what should we be looking for? There are many companies selling some form of Parental Controls, and they all do it differently; some are software only, some are hardware only, some are a combination of the two. The plethora of solutions should give you an idea of how difficult it is to pull this off, and by ‘this’ I mean block Internet pornography. From the end user, or Parent’s perspective we don’t…
