ST. PAUL, Minn. June 25 (Korea Bizwire)–Today, an increasingly mobile workforce, heightened awareness of  corporate data breaches and strengthened industry regulations have led  to a greater demand for data protection measures among consumers and  enterprise alike. To address this need, 3M – a leader in visual privacy  solutions – is expanding its offerings by introducing the ePrivacy  Filter, a software which alerts users to over-the-shoulder  onlookers. This software protects mobile workers from visual hacking  from virtually every angle when paired with a traditional 3M  Privacy Filter.

Features of the 3M ePrivacy Filter include:

  • Intelligent facial recognition technology that identifies the  software’s owner and only reveals the screen for that individual via  webcam
  • Intrusion detection tool that detects over-the-shoulder  snoopers and alerts the user with a pop-up image of the intruder’s face
  • Walk-away privacy feature that blurs the device screen when the  user looks or steps away from the screen but instantly reveals the  screen upon return, allowing for a seamless transition from protection  to usability
  • Customizable privacy settings and various intuitive presets  that allow users to achieve the optimal level of visual privacy for  their specific wants and needs

In addition to this ePrivacy Filter Professional version, the Enterprise  edition, geared specifically to corporate use, includes bonus features  like audit capability, central deployment and management settings.

“With our customers more mobile than ever before, they require the  utmost assurance that their data is protected no matter where they are  working,” said Nicola Stevens, Business Director, Specialty Display  Systems Business Unit. “Adding the ePrivacy Filter to 3M’s suite of  privacy protection products offers them the means to build a  comprehensive visual privacy strategy by providing them with visual  privacy protection from virtually every angle.”

The 3M ePrivacy Filter can be purchased for laptops and desktops running  Windows Operating Systems. The 3M ePrivacy Filter Professional edition  is available for $49.99 and the 3M ePrivacy Filter Enterprise edition is  available for $59.99 per seat. A special $20 mail-in rebate offer is  available when purchasing this product in conjunction with a standard 3M  Privacy Filter.

3M ePrivacy Filters are now available on Shop3M.comCDW.com  and other authorized 3M resellers. To learn more about 3M ePrivacy  Filters, visit 3Mscreens.com/ePrivacyFilter  or follow us on Spiceworks  and Twitter.
