eEye CTO to Speak at Information Security Conference

eEye Digital Security, a provider of IT security and unified vulnerability management solutions, will exhibit at the Phoenix ISSA Chapter’s Information Security Conference on June 7, 2011 at The Buttes resort in Tempe, Arizona. The Phoenix ISSA Chapter conference provides an educational forum for its members through industry-expert and thought-leadership presentations, as well as open discussions on topics highly relevant to the information security industry.

eEye CTO, Marc Maiffret, is a featured speaker in the conference’s “Security Technology” track. He will present “On the Frontline of the Threat Landscape” to inform attendees about the latest IT security dangers, including zero-day vulnerabilities, recent high-profile attacks, and how many of these can be avoided through a combination of technology solutions and pragmatic security practices.

In the conference’s vendor exhibition, eEye will showcase its Retina CS Management solution, Retina Insight reporting engine, as well as add-on modules for Configuration Compliance, Regulatory Reporting, and Patch Management.

“Especially given the numerous high-profile breaches of major enterprises in the past weeks, members of the Phoenix ISSA chapter will likely have plenty of questions and concerns to be addressed,” said Marc Maiffret, CTO, eEye. “I look forward to sharing the latest ‘threat landscape’ information with them and providing guidance on best practices and other strategies to protect their organizations.”

eEye will also encourage conference attendees to take advantage of free resources that the company provides to the IT security community, including a free vulnerability scanner, Retina Community. Most recently, the Company released a new IT security research report, In Configuration We Trust, which outlines simple configuration changes that can dramatically improve an organization’s security posture. eEye’s Zero Day Tracker provides an online catalogue of the newest zero-day vulnerabilities, instructions for quick remediation, and a historical record of past vulnerabilities. eEye’s Vulnerability Expert Forum (VEF) webinars, hosted monthly by CTO Marc Maiffret and the eEye Research Team, continue to attract hundreds of IT security professionals seeking insight and information on recently announced critical vulnerabilities from Microsoft and other software vendors.
