EagleEyeOS One 2.0 now available on the market, Contrary to Gartner’s claims, companies and users do NOT have to give up Skype

By | June 27, 2006

The software family EagleEyeOS One now has a new member, in addition to new functions. One Xtend is a compact version with Quarantine and Zone functions similar to EagleEyeOS Professional. Also, the software addresses a problem that has surfaced recently, and because of which Gartner called to give up VOIP.

EagleEyeOS One portfolio (One Free and One Plus) has been extended with a new product. The new One has all the features of its predecessors, and has borrowed much from the large-company version. Its Quarantine function offers the option of outward data flow from folders or drivers containing “sensitive” documents; moreover, it can be specified via which application a file shall be accessible. The US-patented Zone function of One Xtend enables, at the click of the mouse, the creation of a security zone extending over the entire computer, blocking the access of externally logged-on computers – computers not otherwise belonging to the protected zone. Another novelty is the log filter which adds a user-friendly touch, and it enables the user to preset the operations to be included or omitted from the logs.

Also, the software in the EagleEyeOS One portfolio addresses a special, recently much-debated problem. A few weeks ago, developer of Skpe announced they had discovered a security problem in the software which enables anyone – even out of malicious intent – to send files to the computer of another Skype user without the knowledge and/or permission of that user. Gartner’s suggestion was that a company that was worried about this should simply give up the use of VOIP, and Skype in particular.

“Companies and users don’t have to give up using Skype and its economic advantages at all. The new folder protection function of EagleEyeOS One bans programmes that enable the leakage of information without the knowledge of the user from accessing “sensitive” documents or folders. It enables the user to specify which contents the computer’s VOIP software, such as Skype, has access to,” Csaba Csabai, the company’s product development director announced.

EagleEyeOS One is simple to install, it requires no IT knowledge, and offers instant and cheap document protection for small networks and PCs. “Further evidence of the reliability of the product line is the fact that is has ‘Designed for Microsoft Windows XP’ classification,” Csabai added.
