eEye Tool Helps Find, Fix Vulnerabilities
Tool combines scanning and reporting capabilities with new features to help enterprises remedy network vulnerabilities.In an effort to tap the potential of its various security technologies, eEye Digital Security Inc. next week will unveil its new Enterprise Vulnerability Assessment and Remediation Management solution. The new offering, which will be generally available at the end of November, is essentially a combination of eEyes flagship Retina scanner and its new Remote Enterprise Management console. Designed for large enterprises with complex, distributed networks, the new solution includes an integrated vulnerability remediation process in addition to its core scanning and reporting capabilities. Administrators can set up scheduled scans or perform manual operations from the new console. Once a scan is complete, the Retina software sends it data back to the console via an encrypted channel. That data is then combined with information from other scanners across the network and displayed in a series of charts and graphs showing vulnerabilities for each IP address scanned.
The scan data can also be imported into such management systems as IBMs Tivoli software or Hewlett-Packard Co.s OpenView.
