Retina CS Turns Patch Tuesday into Simply “Tuesday”

Posted February 15, 2012    Mike Puterbaugh

Last week we announced Retina CS 3.0 – which extends our already market-leading vulnerability management capabilities for mobile devices – by adding in support for Android devices, as well as Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync – and sets a new bar for enterprise cloud security, allowing private cloud deployments based on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and VMware vCenter to be integrated within your existing vulnerability management strategy.

This announcement comes on the heels of our most recent award for Retina CS, granted by SC Magazine, who gave us the highest marks possible for usability, feature-richness and most importantly, value. Why do I bring this up? Well, Patch Tuesday of course.  

Patch Tuesdays (and the following days) are typically very active days in the security community. The fact that it’s named “Patch Tuesday” tells us something in its own right.  It even has a Wikipedia page! eEye has long been an active contributor to the Patch Tuesday ‘economy’. In fact, many organizations give us partial credit for pushing Redmond toward a regular reporting cycle.  We’ve long provided our unique insights via our Vulnerability Expert Forum which takes place the Wednesday right after Patch Tuesday (there’s still time to sign up!), helping customers and non-customers alike better plan their Patch Tuesday response.

Even with all of this, our true goal is to provide the solution – Retina CS – that allows our customers to turn “Patch Tuesday” into simply “Tuesday”.

Why is it important? Our customers are busy enough proactively trying to meet their already demanding security, compliance and audit requirements. Patch Tuesday shouldn’t  throw them off their preferred cadence.

How do we help?  By providing all the necessary capabilities to accurately scan and identify the need for those new patches, to provide Insight into which machines can wait for a normal patch window, and most importantly,  the reporting to prove their efforts made their networks more secure.

If you’re longing for Patch Tuesday to return to just simply “Tuesday”, I encourage you to join our next Vulnerability Expert Forum and check out Retina CS.

UPDATE: If you’re participating in our VEF today at 1pm PST be sure to post your answer to our question, that we ask you during the webinar, below for your chance to win an Amazon Kindle Fire! It’s that easy. Good luck.
