eEye Digital boosts endpoint security
eEye Digital Security released a new version of its Blink Professional endpoint security technology last week.

Blink Professional incorporates application white listing, removable storage management and dynamic policy support capabilities in a single, centrally managed software agent. Dynamic policy control enables information technology managers to establish different policies based on the user environment.

Other functions, such as policy-based hardware access, allow Blink to detect, permit or deny access to USB storage devices that map drives to systems. Blink can also be configured to allow or deny the execution of processes and control which applications are used on each system.

The software can be deployed on a Microsoft Windows-based server, desktop or laptop PC.
