eEye Digital Security’s integrated endpoint security agent Blink offers a wide variety of protective measures, including personal firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware, host intrusion prevention, and overall system registry and executable file protection. We tested the product in August 2008 and demonstrate some of the ways these features work together and how easy they are to configure. There are versions for personal use as well as ones that communicate with a central policy server too.
Blink v 4.0.4, eEye.com, runs on Windows 2000 or later versions both 32 and 64 bit too
