Many protective services are on the rise as explicit material on the internet increases and at the same time Christians are also calling for the increased filtering programs to reinforce internet security.

According to the survey conducted by Cerberian, Inc., a leading provider of intelligent internet filtering solutions for businesses, homes and schools, and SonicWALL Inc., a leading provider of integrated security, productivity and mobility solutions, it reveals that:

-- More than 75 percent of people have accidentally visited a pornographic Web site while at work

-- 15 percent have visited such sites more than 10 times

-- 50 percent of respondents spent more than 10 percent of their time at work surfing the Web for personal reasons

-- 60 percent of the respondents indicated their organizations did not have rules against personal Web surfing at work

-- More than 50 percent of organizations have not implemented any type of Internet filtering technology

The survey also found that people accidentally reach pornographic websites through pop up windows (55%); misrepresented links (52%); misspelled URLs (48%; and auto links within emails (23%).

In order to prevent such rise of accidental viewing of unwanted material, several Christian filtering programs are taking action. Among the Christian filtering companies that provide protection for web surfers include: American Family Filter, NetMop, and WiseChoice.net. Crossway Christian ISP Service provides entire internet service including free internet filtering and a Christian web portal to wholesome material on the net.
