eEye Announces 'Retina Cloud' to Deliver Cloud-Based Vulnerability Scanning for Increased IT Security and Simpler Vulnerability and Compliance Management

IT Security Leader Continues to Expand Cloud-Based Security Offerings With New Cloud-Based Vulnerability Scanning and Audits That Detect Cloud-Based File Sharing Applications

PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwire) -- 03/10/11 -- eEye Digital Security, a provider of IT security and unified vulnerability management solutions, today announced Retina Cloud, which provides ASV-certified PCI scans from a web-based portal in the cloud along with trusted, third-party scans of an organization's external assets to improve security and simplify regulatory compliance. In addition, eEye released over a dozen new audits for its Retina family of vulnerability management products that detect cloud-based file sharing applications to help organizations ensure that confidential company information stays within the corporate network. Both of these offerings expand eEye's existing SaaS and cloud-based vulnerability management offerings and provide greater flexibility and ease in managing vulnerabilities to improve security and meet compliance demands across IT environments.

eEye's Retina Cloud provides ASV-certified PCI scans from a web-based portal in the cloud to enable customers to meet PCI DSS external scanning requirements, which require merchants, service providers, and financial institutions to conduct a quarterly scan of "in-scope" PCI hosts. Notably, eEye is a PCI Council Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) which certifies the Company to help organizations achieve compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). Retina Cloud also provides trusted, third-party scans of an organization's external assets to fine-tune security and reduce opportunities for unauthorized access.

In addition, eEye released over a dozen new audits for its Retina Family of vulnerability management products to help organizations identify cloud-based file-sharing applications installed within the IT network, such as Dropbox, Windows Live Drive, and Sugarsync. By identifying these applications, organizations can pinpoint workstations that may be synchronizing data to the cloud against company policy, enabling better protection of critical company information.

eEye first offered vulnerability assessment as-a-service several years ago and continues to build on that foundation with Retina Cloud and an extensive partner network that uses Retina solutions to provide full-service, cloud-based vulnerability management. eEye also provides solutions for organizations running a cloud infrastructure with its flagship Retina vulnerability management solution. Retina scans both physical and virtual assets, searching for known vulnerabilities, missing patches, and configuration compliance violations using a repeatable process to identify and assess risk. Retina discovers, inventories, and scans virtual assets including VMware Server, ESX Server, Citrix Xen, Microsoft Virtual Server, Microsoft Virtual PC, and other virtualized environments.

"eEye has been providing SaaS-based internal and external vulnerability scanning for years," said Brad Hibbert, eEye VP Strategy. "Today, we're offering Retina Cloud to meet the needs of customers who are investing in cloud and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions to avoid the complexity and cost of traditional software management. We will continue to give these customers simple, hands-off, yet very effective tools for increasing security and managing vulnerabilities and compliance."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
