Standard Home Version
Most parents and adults do not understand the full threat associated with kids and young adults when it comes to using Peer to Peer file sharing programs. Kids and young adults use Peer to Peer file sharing programs to download their favorite music which is pirated in most cases. They later find that they can also download an unlimited amount of pornographic pictures and videos without having to pay for it. They can also download pirated/hacked commercial software. As these items are downloaded, there can be a high risk of virus/trojan infection due to the high number of fake files available for download. A high probability of addiction to pornography can occur due to the unlimited source of pornography available for download. There can also be a high risk of civil prosecution by the recording and software industry. Criminal prosecution can also occur as a result of downloading underage pornography. As more items are downloaded onto your computer from Peer to Peer file sharing, those files previously downloaded are now available for sharing with others. Your computer becomes a source for the same files downloaded. This opens up your computer hard drive for people all over the world to download personal and financial data.
Many businesses also do not understand the full threat when it comes to (P2P) Peer to Peer file sharing. Employees often times use Peer to Peer file sharing to download their favorite music which is pirated just the same. They can also download pornographic material, pirated/hacked commercial software and virus infected files. These virus/trojans can pose a high cost to fix along with network downtime. An employer can face civil prosecution by the recording and software industry as a result of employee activity. Sexual harassment issues can and do arise due to another employee being exposed to inappropriate content on company owned computers. Peer to Peer file sharing programs installed on corporate owned computers create an exploit and security loophole into a company owned internal network. People all over the world with the same Peer to Peer file sharing programs can download financial/company confidential data. Guard Dog Internet Safety Enterprise Edition has all the protections of Guard Dog Internet Safety Standard Home Edition with the addition of stopping chat programs, web streaming and other Internet driven programs that can tie up network resources and waist employee time/productivity.
