eEye Offers Free Consumer Edition of Award-Winning Internet Security Product With Anti-Virus

eEye Blink Personal Provides Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Personal Firewall, and Host Vulnerability Assessment at No Cost to Consumers

ALISO VIEJO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 2, 2007 -- eEye Digital Security® is rolling out the most complete Internet security protection available to consumers at any price -- for free. The leading provider of system security software and the foremost contributor to security research and innovation, eEye today announced the release of its latest version of Blink® Personal Internet Security with Anti-virus. For a limited time, eEye is making Blink Personal available as a free 1-year subscription for personal or home office use in North America.

While many vendors have offered free trial versions of their security products to address single security pain points, such as anti-virus or anti-spyware, Blink Personal is the only free integrated Internet security solution to protect users' systems and personal information with:

--  Multiple Anti-virus engines, including protection from unknown 'zero-
    day' attacks
--  Spyware and adware detection and removal
--  Anti-Phishing and Identity-theft attempt prevention
--  System and Application firewalls to control remote access to your
    system
--  Intrusion prevention and system protection from remote attacks
--  Detection of missing patches for applications and the operating system
--  Detection of configuration issues that lower system security
    
Blink Personal is the first Internet security solution to expose system and application flaws that currently go undetected and unpatched, even when using Microsoft Windows Update. Blink Personal is also the first Internet security solution to build all of these protection layers into a small, single agent footprint that breaks the 'bloatware' model of client security that exists in the market. Interested consumers can download their free copy of Blink Personal here: http://www.eeye.com/blinkfree.

"The sheer number and diversity of security threats is overwhelming for most consumers. They don't want to buy an additional application for every new threat, nor do they want to become security experts -- they just want a single Internet security product that can protect their personal information," said Marc Maiffret, eEye founder and CTO. "Blink Personal with Anti-virus is the first Internet security offering to include all the protection a consumer needs while allowing for new features to be added incrementally without additional cost. This is literally the last Internet security product a consumer will have to install."

Blink Personal incorporates more layers of protection than any other Internet security offering, making it the perfect replacement for the ineffective and bulky anti-virus, personal firewall, Internet security, and total protection suites that consumers have been forced to use thus far.

Availability

Blink Personal with Anti-virus is available immediately. eEye's free download offer for Blink Personal is limited to the United States and Canada for a one-year subscription, for one installation per consumer.

System Requirements

Windows 2000, Windows XP (32-bit), 233 MHz or higher Intel Pentium II or compatible processor, 128 MB of RAM, and 60 MB hard-disk space required for installation
