OPTiM and Alps System Integration
Form a Business Alliance for Mobile Security!

Utilizing ALSI's filtering database for the new web filtering function of OPTiM's
parental control service, mamoly.

Tokyo (June 26, 2015) – OPTiM (TSE Mothers: 3694), a leading provider of business-related applications for smart devices, and Alps System Integration (ALSI), a developer of integrated security solutions, proudly announce their business partnership in the mobile security field, with OPTiM providing products with ALSI's filtering database. The alliance's first offering is a new web filtering function for OPTiM'S parental control service, “mamoly.”

In recent years, as the use of smart devices has become widespread, everyone has become able to use one easily. And in families, both parents and their children have been increasingly using these devices. Along with that, various problems could arise, including the children reading websites that have a harmful effect, getting fixated on apps or games, and using the device too much. In order to support both children that use smart devices and their guardians, OPTiM offers the parental control service mamoly. This service allows the guardian to manage a child's smart device, while protecting the child from the problems that come with the smart devices.

With this partnership, ALSI's web filtering database is utilized in a new function of mamoly that lets the user restrict access to certain categories of web sites. With assigning certain categories of websites to be restricted with this function, browsing of harmful or dangerous websites that you aren't aware of can be blocked, protecting children from these bad influences and dangers on the web.
