ALISO VIEJO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dec. 4, 2003

eEye(R) Digital Security, a leading developer of enterprise security software solutions, today announced that Retina(R) Network Security Scanner was granted PC Magazine Editors’ Choice Award. According to the December 30, 2003 issue of PC Magazine, Retina surpassed the competition with vulnerability scanning versatility on a variety of platforms including Linux, Unix, and Windows(R) platforms. The competitive edge of Retina was the ability to automatically correct many of the detected vulnerabilities, in addition to offering customizable audits. Retina’s customizable audit feature allows customers to enforce their internal security policies, such as antivirus deployments and corporate standard registry settings.

“The auto-fix function is one of Retina’s most impressive tools and is unique among the products in this roundup,” said Editors from PC Magazine. “Equally impressive is Retina’s unique auditing tool, which lets you develop specific queries about vulnerabilities you’re already aware of on your network.”

Retina is recognized as the industry’s most accurate and non-intrusive scanner with its comprehensive vulnerability database supported by eEye’s leading research team. Built for both distributed enterprise and standalone networking environments, Retina is utilized by some of the world’s largest corporations and government entities for accurate vulnerability assessment and remediation management.
