NORFOLK, Va., Dec. 19 // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Geeks On Call Holdings, Inc.

The package that Geeks On Call will be selling includes:
"Internet safety is a growing concern among parents and guardians and Net Nanny's mission is to protect children and families from the dark side of the Internet, and we're proud to be aligned with companies that proactively share this vision," said Jack Sunderlage, President and CEO of ContentWatch. "This bundle of technology and education will greatly eliminate the chances of kids being exposed to such threats as cyber-bullying, pornography and Internet predators."
Geeks On Call CEO Richard Cole said, "We are proud to partner with ProtectTheChildren.com, a company dedicated to empowering parents to protect their children and their identity online. Both the educational advantages and the dangers to children on the Internet are growing at an alarming rate. It troubles me to see statistics about how so many of our children "talk" in chat rooms or use instant messaging with strangers and even post personal information on the Internet. This security product should give parents the peace of mind to know that their children can now take advantage of the educational aspects of the Internet without venturing into areas that could possibly expose them to harm without their knowledge."
