eEye Expands Its Business Operations

ALISO VIEJO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 30, 2007 -- With continued growth in its security and vulnerability management business, eEye Digital Security® today announced its expansion in new territories in which to market and sell its unified client security and vulnerability management solutions that have garnered the company recent accolades.

eEye is expanding its business operations by hiring new personnel in Dallas to serve the Central and Southwest regions. Internationally, the company is extending its reach in Europe and Asia Pacific by investing in additional sales support and increasing its presence in Germany, England, and Malaysia. The company has also hired additional personnel to grow reseller channels in South America and Canada.

A leading developer of system security software, eEye is the foremost contributor to security research and innovation, publishing vulnerability information via its Zero Day Tracker, a website that reports zero-day activity for public notification in advance of vendor-issued patches. The free service is available by visiting http://research.eeye.com.

"New demands from the channel coupled with numerous competitive wins and greater public awareness about vulnerability prevention and zero-day exploits have compelled us to expand the company into new regions to better service our customers and channel partners," said CEO Kamal Arafeh of eEye Digital Security. "Our mission is to develop best-in-class security offerings that will protect our customers and deliver significant profit to our partners."

Research firm Gartner estimates the more than $2 billion antivirus market will continue to grow at approximately 12% per year. eEye intends to secure a respectable portion of this market with its award-winning Blink Professional Client Security solution. eEye's Blink is the smallest endpoint security solution available and the only offering in the market to integrate host-based vulnerability assessment, using the company's own award-winning Retina Network Security Scanner technology.

While having focused primarily on protecting over 9,000 corporate businesses and government institutions around the world, eEye recently announced a free home office version of Blink® Personal Internet Security, the same industrial-strength protection found in Blink Professional, available now for use at home.

Blink Personal can be downloaded for free in North America at http://www.eeye.com/blinkfree.
