Web browsers interface with NetSTAR's Cloud servers and utilize NetSTAR inCompass Web-filtering technology

SAN MATEO, Calif., March 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NetSTAR, Inc., a global leader in secure web-filtering, today announced the release of the safe and secure web browsers for the iOS and Android operating environments. The web browsers interface with NetSTAR's Cloud servers and utilize NetSTAR inCompass® 4th Generation Web-Filtering technology - the first 4th generation Internet content and categorization filter specifically designed for the OEM market. NetSTAR will make the browsers available to their OEM Partners that want to provide a safe and secure Internet experience for their customers on iOS and Android devices.

"With the explosion in popularity of smart devices in recent years, our OEM Partners' customers, both in the consumer space as well as the enterprise space, have asked for a safe and secure web browser experience on both iOS and Android operating environments," said Akira Nakayama, Vice President for NetSTAR, Inc. "Our inCompass Mobile Browsers provide our OEM Partners with a way to quickly and seamlessly provide this capability to their customers."

Policy-based user management can be configured and controlled in the inCompass Cloud, which provides for a full policy management solution. In addition, an API interface is available that allows device management from an OEM vendor's own solution.

Utilizing NetSTAR's Cloud infrastructure along with the inCompass technology is a web-browsing experience that provides four layers of URL filtering classification and security, including a true real-time dynamic filtering engine (iCCE) capable of filtering and categorizing URLs in sub-second time, providing end-users with a safe and secure browsing experience with virtually no perceived latency.
