eEye Releases Retina Network Security Scanner

eEye Digital Security, a provider of IT security and unified vulnerability management solutions, announced that the latest release of its Retina Network Security Scanner, as well as the corresponding free version of the product, Retina Community, will both now include exploit identification and right-click integration with Metasploit penetration testing.

In a release, the Company noted using the Retina Community scanner or the Retina Network Security Scanner (version 5.13.0 or higher), users can see whether a vulnerability has an associated exploit from Core Impact, Metasploit, or, allowing IT Security professionals to better prioritize vulnerabilities. In addition, if a Metasploit exploit exists, users can right-click to launch Metasploit (3.6.0 or higher) directly from the scanner to perform a penetration test against the targeted host.

“This latest version of Retina Community and the Retina Network Security Scanner allows IT Security professionals to fix their biggest risks first. And, with right-click Metasploit integration, penetration testing is literally at the IT Security professional’s fingertips within the Retina interface,” said Brad Hibbert, VP Strategy, eEye.  “These new features are further examples of how eEye solutions improve risk prioritization and streamline the vulnerability management process.” eEye Digital Security provides vulnerability and compliance management.
