3M announced an expansion of its visual privacy solutions with the new ePrivacy Filter, software that alerts users to over-the-shoulder onlookers to protect mobile workers from visual hacking.

Paired with the 3M Privacy Filter, the solution is intended to prevent visual hacking from virtually every angle.

Features of the software include: intelligent facial recognition identifying the software owner, an intrusion detection tool that detects people looking over a user’s shoulder, a walk-away privacy feature that blurs the device screen when the user looks or steps away, and other customizable privacy settings.

The enterprise edition 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,” stated Nicola Stevens, business director of the 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.”

Available 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.
