Careful parents who want to protect their children from social threats have a new tool at their disposal. Check Point Software Technologies, provider of security software solutions to protect against all sorts of threats, has recently released ZoneAlarm SocialGuard, a tool meant to offer protection against online predators, cyberbullies, hacked accounts, malicious links, and other social threats on Facebook.

You will be able to monitor status updates, wall postings, messages, friend requests, and identify illicit content. You will receive real-time alerts via email or via the SocialGuard interface whenever ZoneAlarm SocialGuard detects any suspicious activity.

ZoneAlarm SocialGuard sits there in the background, unobtrusively monitoring your children’s activities. All the while it provides protection against: cyberbullying (identifies and warns about inappropriate or threatening content sent to a Facebook account in private messages, status updates and wall postings), age fraud (detects false reporting of ages through advanced search and scanning and thus protects against adults posing as children), friend requests from strangers, hacked accounts (flags unauthorized status updates, suspicious profile changes or other explicit content on the user’s account), and dangerous of offensive links.

“Too often in the past year, we have seen instances of real-world consequences of social threats including cyberbullying. In fact, many surveys have indicated that one in five kids today has been a victim of social threats online,” said Bari Abdul, vice president of consumer sales at Check Point. “With SocialGuard, we are offering Facebook users a simple way to embrace social networking safely. For parents, it’s about protecting your kids from the social threats out there, while still respecting their privacy and fostering open communication.”

ZoneAlarm SocialGuard is available for purchase for $1.99/month or $19.99/year. You can purchase it from the ZoneAlarm website here.
