eEye Vulnerability Expert Forum to Address Patch Tuesday Announcements

eEye Digital Security, a leading provider of IT security vulnerability management solutions, today announced its upcoming Vulnerability Expert Forum (VEF) will comprehensively address this month’s Patch Tuesday vulnerabilities from Microsoft.

eEye’s VEF sessions are held online, the second Wednesday of each month, the day after Patch Tuesday, when Microsoft discloses their monthly patches. This month’s session will be held May 11, 2011 at 1:00 PM (Pacific) / 4 PM (Eastern). VEF attendees will have an opportunity to win an Amazon Kindle and $25 gift card.

VEF sessions provide insight and information on recently announced critical vulnerabilities from Microsoft and other software vendors, as well as:

  • A complete analysis of the latest critical vulnerabilities, vendor patches, and zero-day threats
  • Detailed assessment of the true criticality of each patch to best prioritize rollout
  • Expert guidance on the actions necessary to protect systems

eEye’s VEF is one of several free, online resources that the company provides to the IT security community. eEye last week released an IT security research report, In Configuration We Trust, outlining simple configuration changes that can dramatically improve an organization’s security posture. Retina Community is a free asset scanner for up to 32 IPs, now being used by nearly five thousand organizations. Zero Day Tracker provides a catalogue of the newest zero-day vulnerabilities, instructions for quick remediation, and a historical record of past vulnerabilities.

“We continue to be encouraged by the hundreds of IT security pros who register to attend the VEF every month for specific insight on how to address vulnerabilities,” said Marc Maiffret, eEye cofounder and CTO. “There’s a growing appetite for this type of guidance, which in combination with the other free resources we provide hopefully makes the tough job of vulnerability management easier and more effective in minimizing risk.”
