eEye Announces Industry’s First Vulnerability Management Solution For Virtualized Applications

Solution is now available as part of eEye's Retina suite of products

PHOENIX, AZ—Oct. 20, 2011—eEye Digital Security, the company that provides Security in Context, today unveiled the security industry's first solution for securing virtualized applications, which is now available as part of eEye's Retina suite of products. With this release, Retina provides additional levels of security for virtualized application packages deployed via VMware’s ThinApp™ technology.

Retina now identifies and prioritizes vulnerabilities and configuration risk in both physical and virtualized applications and systems, as well as offers the remediation guidance to ensure that risk is addressed promptly and efficiently. This new development, unique to Retina, will help in safeguarding enterprises and government agencies alike against attacks that target virtualized applications.

This new capability provides unprecedented levels of visibility into virtualized environments, delivering these benefits:

Reduced risk, by ensuring VMware ThinApp applications are properly discovered and are part of standard vulnerability management processes Increased visibility and automated vulnerability assessment for VMware ThinApp packages Dramatically decreased time, effort, and cost associated with the discovery and remediation of vulnerabilities within virtualized applications

"We are excited to see the new capability eEye brings to the security management of virtual applications,” said Vittorio Viarengo, Vice President, End User Computing Products, VMware. “With eEye Retina’s integration with VMware ThinApp, users will be able to maintain a strong compliance and security footprint as they simplify application management.”

Remediating vulnerabilities in virtualized applications is a challenge for both private-sector and government organizations, which typically do not even know these vulnerabilities exist. Now, with Retina, those challenges are easy to overcome.

“This advance was designed with our security-in-context principle in mind, which holds that while security vulnerabilities exist, it’s the ability to view them in context, how they apply to an enterprise individually, that allows an organization to more effectively manage risk,” said Brad Hibbert, vice president of strategy, eEye Digital Security. “Retina is the industry’s first and only security solution for virtualized applications that will dramatically slash vulnerability management woes in virtual and cloud environments. We were pleased to work with VMware to create even more value for our commercial and government customers."

Availability This unique new capability is now available with the Retina suite of products, including Retina CS Community, eEye’s free vulnerability management solution.
