eEye to Offer Determina Customers Upgrade Incentive Program

ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - August 23, 2007) - eEye Digital Security®, a leading developer of unified client security and vulnerability management tools, today announced its Determina Switch Program, an incentive program for customers of Determina's VPS endpoint security product to encourage them to switch to eEye's award-winning Blink Professional endpoint security product.

Backed by best of business research and development, eEye's Blink Endpoint Security solution offers users advanced features including anti-virus, anti-spyware, vulnerability assessment and identity theft which are not available in Determina's Endpoint Vulnerability Protection solution. Earlier this month, VMware Inc. acquired Determina Inc., of Redwood City, Calif., a vendor of vulnerability products.

eEye's Determina Switch Program includes an automatic credit back to the customers' existing Determina investment with the purchase of a one year minimum Blink license. Also included is a 32 IP pack of eEye's Retina Network Security Scanner to scan critical assets at no additional charge. Retina scans the network for known and unauthorized devices -- such as servers, desktops, laptops, routers/switches -- identifying missing patches, misconfigurations, policy exceptions, and other vulnerabilities.

"Our goal is to provide Determina customers with a simple migration path to ensure their environment will remain protected through the transition of one host-based intrusion prevention system to another," said Brendan Evers, eEye Senior Director of US Sales. "We are encouraging these organizations to join our customer network, where they can enjoy the benefits of our world-renowned zero-day vulnerability research team and award-winning multi-layered endpoint protection suite at a discounted price."

eEye's Blink line of products, Blink Professional, Blink Enterprise, and Blink Personal editions immediately identify system and application flaws that currently go undetected and unpatched despite regular use by Microsoft Windows Update services. The products offer multiple protection layers built into a single lightweight agent, proactively protecting systems and confidential information with:

--  Vulnerability Assessment -- Defines, identifies and classifies the
    security risks or vulnerabilities in a computer's operating system and
--  Intrusion Prevention -- Analyzes the content of network traffic to
    block malicious data and allow legitimate traffic to be processed. This
    includes both intrusions, such as attacks from outside the organization,
    and misuse, such as attacks from within the organization.
--  System and Application Firewalls -- Controls the network activity of
    systems and installed applications.
--  Virus, Spyware, Phishing, and Botnet Protection -- Performs in-memory
    protection and disk scanning for computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses,
    spyware, botnets, and blended threats by checking each process and
    application before being loaded.
--  System Protection -- Provides proactive, host-based security against
    day zero attacks and offers protection against buffer overflow and memory-
    based attacks.
--  Identity Theft Protection -- Identifies and responds to attempts to
    deceive a user with misleading HTML and XML in web pages and email.
--  Network-Aware Policies -- Dynamically manages policies and
    configuration settings based on physical network location.

With the focus of protecting over 9,000 existing corporate businesses and government customers around the world, eEye is uniquely positioned to continue its pattern of growth in enterprise accounts to include the broader market of SMB organizations.
