eEye Digital Security, the developer of endpoint security and vulnerability management software solutions, has announced the release of Blink Personal, a free version of its award-winning Blink endpoint security technology, developed for non-commercial users.
Blink Personal is the first free security product available to consumers to combine multiple layers of technology that protect against identity theft, worms, trojan horses and other attack methods hackers use, into a single agent that is unobtrusive, integrated and deeply-layered with security functionality.
Deployed as a software agent on a Windows-based desktop PC or laptop, Blink Personal leverages multiple layers of protection—more so than any other endpoint security product—to shield individual digital assets from attacks and keep systems up and running. Blink Personal not only delivers the industry’s most comprehensive endpoint security for the attacks that are affecting users today, it unifies this functionality in order to reduce the memory and computing resources necessary to support the agent.
Blink Personal also incorporates a Neighborhood Watch program, a free service where users can choose to send anonymous attack data to eEye’s industry leading Research Team without any disruption to the user, creating a wide sensor net for new attacks and zero-day events. This feature allows consumers, on an optional basis, to participate in creating the internet’s largest attack sensor web. Each installation of Blink Personal blocks attacks and sends the attack data anonymously to eEye’s Research Lab, where it can be analyzed to see if the attack is an existing, known attack, a variant on a known attack or a new attack, increasing the security for all other users.
For those interested in protecting themselves with Blink Personal, the free product is available for download on eEye´s Website.
