Now Available! Direct Integration from Retina CS into RSA Archer eGRC

Posted June 1, 2012    Morey Haber

Yet another first for BeyondTrust and eEye Digital Security. Our combined companies are proud to release our first new direct integration from Retina CS into RSA Archer eGRC. The business value provides comprehensive vulnerability management data directly into Archer’s Threat Management system. Using direct database access from Archer’s Integration System, the eGRC platform harvests asset and vulnerability data directly from Retina CS to provide a snapshot view of Threat Management health based on any data Retina collects for vulnerabilities regardless of server, desktop, infrastructure, cloud or even mobile device. The managed data feed can be setup to import data at almost any periodic frequency and will continually update Archer with the latest Threat Management data based on findings contained within Retina CS regardless of scan job. In addition, this data is completely exposed down to the most granular level to see how assets and vulnerabilities fair against current process and policies.

The data collected can drive any of the pre-defined reports within Archer and provide the scan result status organizations need to manage vulnerabilities as a part of their governance, risk, and compliance. The screen shot below illustrates a standard report within Archer that plots assets by severity and total vulnerabilities.

If you would like to see more of this exciting new integration, please visit us next week at the Archer GRC Summit in Chicago. We would like to show you the flexibility and power of an enterprise vulnerability management solution tied directly to your enterprise GRC solution. And, just like being the first with Threat Analyzers, we are proud to share with you our first integration as a new company.

For more information on how to connect Retina CS and RSA Archer eGRC, please contact us today.

GHOST Vulnerability…Scary Indeed

Posted January 28, 2015    BeyondTrust Research Team

A vulnerability discovered by Qualys security researchers has surfaced within the GNU C Library that affects virtually all Linux operating systems. The vulnerability lies within the various gethostbyname*() functions and, as such, has been dubbed “GHOST.” GHOST is particularly nasty considering remote, arbitrary code execution can be achieved. In an effort to avoid taxing DNS lookups, glibc developers introduced…

Your New Years Resolution: Controlling Privileged Users

Posted January 27, 2015    Dave Shackleford

Is 2015 the year you get a better handle on security? The news last year was grim – so much so, in fact, that many in the information security community despaired a bit. Really, the end-of-the-year infosec cocktail parties were a bit glum. OK, let’s be honest, infosec cocktail parties are usually not that wild…
