CHEYENNE, Wyo., Feb. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today BlackFog launched BlackFog Privacy, the first in a range of cyber privacy products designed to protect your online and offline privacy using real-time threat detection and blocking. Using a triage approach to data privacy, BlackFog Privacy is able to intercept, detect and respond to data profiling and collection requests before they happen and block any data leakage from your computer.
With more than 20% of all on-line traffic focused on advertising, marketing, data collection and profiling (with some sites exceeding more than 40%), it is crucial that individuals and corporations have a way to control the information they are disclosing. BlackFog Privacy provides visual insight into your data using a series of gauges, so you can see at a glance where your data is going and what factors contribute to your privacy.
"After thousands of hours of research and development and listening to customers needs and concerns we are excited to offer a lightweight holistic solution to protect individual and corporate privacy," said Dr. Darren Williams, Founder and CEO of BlackFog.
"BlackFog now provides a way for users to take back control of their online and offline privacy. This is more important than ever and helps to ensure a safe and secure online experience for everyone," said Sheriff Leon Lott of Richland County, South Carolina.
In addition, BlackFog Privacy is able to remove existing forensic data from your computer, lockdown all your system settings and even notify you when your microphone has been activated for cases when your microphone is hijacked by spyware. BlackFog can also detect and prevents data collection from many spyware products.
The software is available for Windows 7, 8 and 10 and automatically provides weekly updates to all rules to ensure your computer remains safe as new threats are discovered. A 30 day trial is available from the company web site at www.blackfog.com. Release pricing is $19.95 per year and will be available until March 31st, 2016, after which it will be $35.00 per year. Bundle pricing is also available to protect multiple devices.
In the wake of increasing privacy concerns across the world BlackFog, Inc. was established to combat the growing barrage of applications that breach your rights and to ensure that your personal or corporate data is secured at all times. Unlike companies that focus on malware and viruses, cyber privacy focuses specifically on your data and rights as an individual.
