ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- eEye Digital Security®, the leading developer of system security software and the foremost contributor to security research and innovation, today announced the latest version of Blink® Professional, its award-winning endpoint security technology. eEye is combining its own anti-virus dynamic heuristics technology with sandboxing technology from leading anti-virus vendor Norman Data Defense to complete Blink Professional 3.0 as a single, small-footprint agent, incorporating multi-layered security methods to protect against both known and unknown vulnerabilities in real-time, thus making it the last security product enterprises and SMBs will need to purchase to stop 100 percent of malware attacks, regardless of signatures or patch updates.
The notion of standalone security products is dead, said Marc Maiffret, eEyes founder and CTO. Customers dont want to be nickel-and-dimed to death and are frustrated over the pricing, lack of integration and added systems management costs of using multiple tools. Enterprises need integration in order to have a complete security solution and the addition of Normans anti-virus technology pushes Blink Professional even further ahead as the industrys most comprehensive unified client security product.
Deployed as a software agent on a Windows-based server, desktop PC or laptop, Blink Professional leverages multiple layers of protectionmore so than any other endpoint security productto shield individual digital assets from attacks and keep systems up and running. Blink Professional delivers the industrys most comprehensive endpoint security for attacks that are affecting users today as an integrated, optimized single agent in order to reduce the memory and computing resources needed. Blink Professional also serves as a platform to which future security functionality can be added, effectively making it the last security agent that IT has to install and manage. In addition, Blink Professional can be deployed and managed from a central location, making it ideal for distributed network environments.
