Video Demo: Retina / Metasploit Integration

Posted April 20, 2011    Morey Haber

Marc and I have been having a little fun lately with third-party integrations. We support a wide variety of tools from Network Management Systems, Call Centers, Security Information Managers, and all the way through Network Access Control, and Governance Risk and Compliance solutions.  We have been exploring other tools that can gain value from our results and in the process, we stumbled on an interesting trend that not many people may know about. Hence, this blog.

One of the most common requests we receive is for Retina Network to integrate into Penetration Testing solutions. eEye has a long history and a rock-solid integration with Core Security for Core Impact (the best on the market),  but many people may not be aware that we integrate with the Metasploit Framework as well. In fact, we integrate with all versions of Metasploit from the Free Framework all the way through the paid Professional version, which is really the same engine with a fancy UI. (I prefer the command line myself).

Marc Maiffret and the Retina team also wanted to add a personal thank you to HD Moore and the entire Metasploit team for solely doing the work of updating Metasploit to be able to import Retina data. We both appreciate the work they did here for Retina and continue to do for the community. The free version of Metasploit continues to be the best free tool for performing penetration testing functions and we believe the combined integration of eEye’s free Retina Community and Metasploit Free are two great free tools for any IT security folks toolkit.

So, if you are looking for penetration testing integration, watch the short (four-minute) demo below. You can save some money on the free Metasploit framework and provide comprehensive vulnerability assessment scanning and penetration testing in one simple shot.

Good Hunting !

Are you changing your passwords as often as the weather changes?

Posted April 20, 2015    Scott Lang

There is one thing that should change more frequently than the weather: Your privileged passwords. Why? If you’re like more than 25% of companies out there, then your current IT environment contains unmanaged accounts putting you at risk of data breaches and compliance violations, and you don’t have a process to control those accounts.
