EEye Adds AV to Blink

EEye Digital Security incorporates antivirus protection into Blink Professional, its endpoint security product

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, eEye’s founder and CTO. “Customers don’t 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 Norman’s anti-virus technology pushes Blink Professional even further ahead as the industry’s 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 protection—more so than any other endpoint security product—to shield individual digital assets from attacks and keep systems up and running. Blink Professional delivers the industry’s 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.

The cybersecurity profession struggles to retain women (figures range from 10 to 20 percent). It's particularly worrisome for an industry with a rapidly growing number of vacant positions.

So why does the shortage of women continue to be worse in security than in other IT sectors? How can men in infosec be better allies for women; and how can women be better allies for one another? What is the industry doing to fix the problem -- what's working, and what isn't?

Is this really a problem at all? Are the low numbers simply an indication that women do not want to be in cybersecurity, and is it possible that more women will never want to be in cybersecurity? How many women would we need to see in the industry to declare success?

Join Dark Reading senior editor Sara Peters and guests Angela Knox of Cloudmark, Barrett Sellers of Arbor Networks, Regina Wallace-Jones of Facebook, Steve Christey Coley of MITRE, and Chris Roosenraad of M3AAWG on Wednesday, July 13 at 1 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss all this and more.
