eEye Blink Personal Edition Wins VB100 Award

Product complies with 100% detection of in-the-wild viruses with zero false positives


Aliso Viejo, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/28/2007 -- A leading developer of unified client security and vulnerability management, eEye Digital Security today announced that its Blink® Personal Edition 3.0 received the VB100 award from Virus Bulletin magazine.

Blink Personal blocked 100 percent of the ‘In the Wild’ viruses with a result of zero false positive by offering virus protection plus zero day protection and ensuring comprehensive Internet security. The award was announced in the June Comparative Review issue of Virus Bulletin.

According to its editor John Hawes, the VB100 (virus) award is granted to products “that detect, both on-demand and on access and in its default settings, all malware known to be 'In the Wild' at the time of the review and generates no false positives when scanning a set of clean files.”

In addition, Internet security products were checked against malware from various categories, such as file infector, polymorphic, worms and bots, DOS and macro viruses.

Of the 37 products submitted for the formal VB100 comparative review, nearly one-third failed to pass the criteria under test conditions in the VB labs.

"Blink put in a very impressive performance for a newcomer to our tests”, said Hawes. “It's great to see new products bringing in fresh ideas and innovations, expanding the concept of a comprehensive security suite, and to see it done in such a solid, slick and stylish manner really gives me hope for the future."

“We’re honored to have Virus Bulletin recognize our Blink Personal product”, said Kamal Arafeh, eEye CEO. “We have a great team of people at eEye that put a lot of hard work and pride into making all our products successful in offering customers the very best in Internet security solutions.”
