eEye Digital Security Releases World's First Security Software that
Thinks Like a Hacker
User-Friendly Retina Scans, Monitors, Alerts and Automatically Fixes
Network Security Vulnerabilities
(CORONA DEL MAR, CA) eEye Digital Security (www.eEye.com), a division
of eCompany, announced today the release of Retina - an unparalleled
network security product for Microsoft Windows NT platform. Retina is
currently available for download at http://www.eEye.com
Retina is the first security software application with
state-of-the-art artificial intelligence features that allow it to
think like a hacker (CHAM - Common Hacking Attack Methods). Thus,
while all of the other security scanners on the market are primarily
looking for known vulnerabilities, Retina looks for known and unknown
vulnerabilities, giving users the most comprehensive network security
analysis possible. Retina also includes an auto-update feature, which
provides continuous update of its modules, allowing users to keep pace
with the latest security vulnerabilities.
eCompany's Chief Hacking Officer, Marc Maiffret, described Retina as a
virtual 24 hours, seven days a week network security guard. "Retina
is the first network security software system that thinks like a
hacker and works like an around-the-clock human network security
analyst," explained Maiffret. "Unlike other network vulnerability
scanning tools on the market today, Retina has real-time security
auditing and testing capabilities. The system also includes built-in
artificial intelligence features designed to handle 'what if' and 'in
case of' scenarios."
Also setting it apart from other network security scanners is Retina's
"Fix-It" technology, a feature that allows for the automatic
correction of common system security issues, such as registry
settings, file permissions and more. This feature allows system
administrators to solve the more common security problems with a
single click, enabling them to focus on more complex systems issues.
Retina's vulnerability auditing modules are designed for the following
systems and services: NetBIOS, HTTP, CGI and WinCGI, ISAPI and ASP,
FTP, DNS, DoS vulnerabilities, POP, SMTP and LDAP, TCP/IP and UDP,
Registry, Services, Users and Accounts, Password vulnerabilities,
Publishing extensions, Database Servers, Firewalls, Routers and Proxy
Servers. Because of Retina's open architecture, users can also develop
their own vulnerability tests and auditing modules in the programming
language of their choice.
Retina features an easy-to-use, graphical user-interface to control
all aspects of scanning and reporting. In addition, Retina features a
wizard interface, which allows users to create custom audits. The
product's Smart Reporting feature allows systems administrators to
access, read and print security test results with ease.
