3M Introduces ePrivacy Filter for Comprehensive Privacy Solution

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.
