SurfControl sales rocket by 200%

Employers just love filter software

Filter führer SurfControl, the enemy of work slackers, porn addicts, and people who want IT information, whether its favourable to SurfControl or not, is doing rather well.

The Net filter company is still losing money, but busted forecasts by getting third quarter sales to leap by 200 per cent to $11.1 million. It has also said it will be cash positive in the fourth quarter of next year, ahead of market expectations.

In the three months to 28 February, SurfControl made a pre-tax loss of $22.2 million.

Three quarters of Surfcontrol's sales are in the US. The average order is $4,500. ®
