eEye's Blink Endpoint Security Protects Virtualized Environments

ALISO VIEJO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 08/20/07 -- eEye Digital Security®, a leading developer of unified client security and vulnerability management tools, today announced that its Blink® Endpoint Security product protects end users and networks from malware threats to virtualized environments including VMWare sessions and Windows Virtual Machine sessions.

Blink additionally provides virus and spyware protection, intrusion prevention and firewalls that protect desktops from zero-day attacks, phishing, ID theft, keylogging, worms, viruses and variants of malware such as hijacking by botnets.

"For clients that have decided to virtualize their Windows environments within VMWare or Microsoft Virtual Server, eEye's Blink solution can actively protect those sessions just as if they were loaded on physical hardware," said Morey Haber, eEye VP of Product Management.

"Virtualization provides an environment with many advantages and cost savings and Blink can proactively ensure that the investment is secured regardless how these sessions are deployed and managed," added Haber.

Blink Professional, Blink Personal and Blink Enterprise editions immediately identify system and application flaws that currently go undetected and unpatched despite regular use by Microsoft Windows Update services.

Blink offers multiple protection layers built into a single lightweight agent, proactively protecting systems and confidential information with:

--  Vulnerability Assessment -- Defines, identifies and classifies the
    security risks or vulnerabilities in a computer's operating system and
    applications.
--  Intrusion Prevention -- Analyzes the content of network traffic to
    block malicious data and allow legitimate traffic to be processed. This
    includes both intrusions, such as attacks from outside the organization,
    and misuse, such as attacks from within the organization.
--  System and Application Firewalls -- Controls the network activity of
    systems and installed applications.
--  Virus, Spyware, Phishing, and Botnet  Protection -- Performs in-memory
    protection and disk scanning for computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses,
    spyware, botnets, and blended threats by checking each process and
    application before being loaded.
--  System Protection -- Provides proactive, host-based security against
    day zero attacks and offers protection against buffer overflow and memory-
    based attacks.
--  Identity Theft Protection -- Identifies and responds to attempts to
    deceive a user with misleading HTML and XML in web pages and email.
--  Network-Aware Policies -- Dynamically manage policies and
    configuration settings based on physical network location.
    

Blink most recently received a "Community Choice Awards" in the Host-Based Intrusion Prevention Systems category by Penton Media's Windows IT Pro®.
