eEye Digital Security Extends Unified Vulnerability Management to Consumerized Mobile Devices

eEye Digital Security, a provider of IT security and unified vulnerability management solutions, today announced availability of Retina CS Mobility Connector, an add-on module that allows Retina CS management console customers to extend and unify vulnerability management to increasing numbers of consumerized mobile devices used to access corporate networks. Organizations that extend and unify mobile device vulnerability management into a single, Web-based security management console are able to gain a holistic view of their entire vulnerability profile, prioritize threats, and then take steps to remediate security and compliance risks.

“Consumerized IT devices such as smart phones and tablets are overwhelming enterprises. Organizations are struggling to find a way to identify, prioritize and remediate the added layer of complexity and risk these devices have added,” said Brad Hibbert, vice president, strategy, eEye. “Enterprise IT security teams need solutions that can provide effective mobile device vulnerability assessment while eliminating complexity. With Retina CS Mobility Connecter, our customers can extend proven assessment out to their mobile networks and manage everything from a central management console.”

Retina CS 2.5 Mobility Connector provides users with enhanced features and benefits.
