eEye @ N-Able Partner Summit

Posted October 25, 2010    Chris Silva

Marc and I just returned from the N-able 2010 Partner Summit in Scottsdale, Arizona. While there, we took part in the announcement of N-able’s Remote Audit Manager, a collaboration between eEye Digital Security and N-able. Remote Audit Manager utilizes eEye’s award winning Retina Network Security Scanner to allow MSPs to provide vulnerability assessment, configuration compliance and regulatory compliance solutions to their customers.

We had a great time presenting the solution during the conference, with Marc participating in a panel discussion as well as a solution overview talk that wrapped up the show. Marc and I also delivered a technical briefing that provided some in-depth details on the different components of Remote Audit Manager. The joint talk went great, considering it has been several years since Marc and I have been on stage together – although as usual, we ran long trying to get as much information across as possible.

Overall, there was a lot of great interest in the solution, with tons of traffic during the expo and lots of side conversations between sessions. We both had a great time, and look forward to following up with everyone we talked to.
