Original Press Release:
Oculis Labs Announces the Release of PrivateEye Pro 1.0
Hunt Valley, MD, 12 August 2009, Oculis Labs(TM), a leading innovator in data-in-use security, today announced that it has released PrivateEye Pro 1.0. Oculis Labs PrivateEye Pro uses information about a user's visual attention to reduce the amount of displayed information available for eavesdropping.
PrivateEye Pro Eavesdropping Security Software
When PrivateEye Pro, typically using a web camera, determines that the user is not looking at the display the contents of the monitor are blurred to the point where typical text is illegible. Or in 'Boss' mode PrivateEye displays a screen capture of the user's choice. When PrivateEye Pro determines that the user is looking at the display the contents are presented normally. The effect is that visual contents are displayed only as needed by the authorized user.
In typical computer use scenarios such as in offices, coffee shops, and in the home, users do not attend to their displays 100% of the time. User's look around their environments, for example to answer the phone, speak with a colleague, read a printed document, to look down at the keyboard as they type, or to get up and leave the computer unattended. PrivateEye eliminates visual data leakage at those times. In typical scenarios, this system reduces the opportunities for eavesdroppers by up to 50%.
