eEye Releases the First and Only Free Vulnerability Management Solution, Retina CS Community

Retina CS Community can identify and patch vulnerabilities in third-party applications
PHOENIX, AZ – Oct. 18, 2011 - eEye Digital Security, the company that provides Security in Context, today announced the general availability of Retina CS Community, the first and only IT security product to integrate vulnerability management along with patching for both Microsoft and common third-party applications from a single console at no cost to organizations.

With this release, eEye dramatically decreases the cost of managing IT security risks, especially for mid-size organizations that are often resource strapped and dealing with budgetary restrictions. Retina CS Community uniquely provides centralized vulnerability management, built-in patching, and vulnerability scanning for Blackberry mobile devices and virtualized applications at no cost, delivering benefits which include:

Reduced security risks with the most cost-effective vulnerability management product available for up to 128 assets. More effective and efficient remediation efforts with automated patching for both Microsoft and third-party applications including Mozilla Firefox and Adobe's Distiller, Elements, Reader, Flash and Shockwave. Increased visibility and automated vulnerability assessment for Blackberry mobile devices and virtualized applications.

A key capability of Retina CS Community is the ability to identify and patch vulnerabilities in third-party applications, such as Adobe and Firefox, which are quickly becoming a favored attack vector for hackers. Retina CS Community addresses the growing security risks associated with these third-party applications by extending Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) beyond Microsoft application patching to also provide patching for third-party applications. With Retina CS Community, organizations get increased value around existing WSUS installations with a single, integrated solution for both Windows and third-party application patching.

“Retina CS Community expands eEye’s growing list of free security resources to help organizations understand where their weak points are and close security and compliance gaps,” said Brad Hibbert, Vice President of Strategy, eEye Digital Security. “We are very excited to provide this security industry first to help organizations of all sizes reduce security risks and make vulnerability management more efficient and effective, especially around third-party application patching, mobile devices and virtual application scanning.”
