Today, in the era of a constant mobile workforce development, high awareness of corporate data breaches and stricter industry regulations have resulted in a greater demand for data protection measures among consumers and enterprise alike.
To fulfill this goal, 3M – which occupies one of the top positions in privacy solutions – is expanding its offerings by introducing the ePrivacy Filter, a program that alerts users to over-the-shoulder onlookers. This technology protects mobile workers from visual hacking from virtually every angle when it cooperates with a traditional 3M Privacy Filter.
3M’s ePrivacy Filter Software is a software that turns to using the computer’s webcam to determine the user’s face through its facial recognition program. When the user is looking elsewhere, or steps away – the screen blurs. If an unknown person is detected in front of the camera, the user is alerted with a pop-up of the intruder’s face with an image taken by the webcam.
The software is designed to work in conjunction to a 3M Privacy Filter that attaches physically to the device – providing a full 180 degrees of privacy from visual hackers.The new software has a wide arrange of useful features including intelligent facial recognition that helps to identify the owner of the computer and makes him the only person who can see the screen.
Which is more, there’s a possibility of in using intrusion detection that allows to sing out over-the-shoulder snoopers and later warns the user with the picture of the intruder’s name. Another key feature of the software is the device screen that turns blur when the user steps out of the computer protecting the device from unknown persons. When the software is combined with a 3M™ Privacy Filter (physical filter) true 180-degree visual privacy is possible.
And finally, 3M Privacy Filter allows its user to customize all the setting so that the software meet all the specific wants and needs. Here you can learn more about 3M™ ePrivacy Filter Software.
