BASCOM's Global Chalkboard Debuts New Filter with Improved Customization for More Thorough Filtering

Hauppauge, New York - July 30, 2008—BASCOM Global Internet Services, Inc., an innovative developer of Internet curriculum tools for the K-12 educational market, today proudly announces the release of a new and improved filter for its Global Chalkboard solution. With more than 25 million Web sites in over 90 categories and improved customization settings, this new filter continues to build on the core philosophy of the product line: to deliver flexible, safe, and easy-to-use Internet tools that empower a teacher to select the educational Web content for their classroom—while still operating within the acceptable use policies established by the school administration.

To ease the transition of our Global Chalkboard users, the new filter organizes the categories by color and groups them under three major headings. By offering more customization and granular organization, this new filter provides increased flexibility and choice while also delivering the utmost in security. More refined controls enable a school to tweak the filter settings. And, to streamline the installation process for our new customers, all Global Chalkboard solutions come preconfigured with a default filter, so a school can quickly get up and running.

"The release of this new filter exemplifies the Global Chalkboard's mission to provide the best Internet security available on the market today," states Peter Cirasole, BASCOM's President/CEO. "The Global Chalkboard will always stay true to its original philosophy: to develop and refine our Internet teaching tools based on collaboration with teachers so that we offer the most innovative and secure solutions for K-12 schools."
