eEye Digital Security Extends Leadership Position in Federal Government Security Standards for SCAP, FDCC, and DISA

eEye Digital Security, the largest provider of vulnerability management
and compliance solutions to the Federal government, today announced that
it will introduce more than 35 new benchmark tests for the Security
Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). SCAP measures systems to find
vulnerabilities and evaluate their possible impact. These tests meet the
requirements of Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGS) for the
Department of Defense's (DoD) Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA),
and for the Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) standard.

    "eEye has written the book when it comes to vulnerability management and
compliance solutions that meet government agency regulations and security
standards," said Marc Maiffret, eEye CTO and co-founder. "These new
capabilities will be implemented in eEye's security management console,
Retina CS, a centralized security compliance and reporting platform
written from the ground up to meet the needs of government customers by
providing stronger support for ever-changing SCAP standards."

    Agencies within the Federal government, ranging from critical national
defense to civilian organizations, have benefited from the security and
compliance advantages eEye has provided for over a decade. Among the
leading-edge vulnerability management solutions that have helped agencies
to ensure security and compliance are the following:

--  Retina.GOV: Retina.GOV provides unified vulnerability management and
    compliance with continuous monitoring of systems to adhere to
    government-related compliance and assessment standards.
--  Retina Network Security Scanner: This flagship component of Retina.GOV
    is SCAP certified as an FDCC Scanner, Authenticated Configuration
    Scanner, Authenticated Vulnerability and Patch Scanner, and
    Unauthenticated Vulnerability Scanner.
--  DISA STIG auditing: For more than three years, eEye has provided STIG
    auditing capabilities for Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows XP
    Professional and additional Microsoft systems.
--  FDCC auditing: For over a year, eEye has provided FDCC auditing
    capabilities for Windows XP and Windows Vista.
--  Information Assurance Vulnerability Alert (IAVA): For more than six
    years, eEye has been the leader in providing complete auditing
    capabilities, offering more comprehensive IAVA audits than any other
    vulnerability management provider.


New Templates Proactively Support Government Standards

    The 35-plus new SCAP benchmarks will extend eEye's leadership in
government compliance and reporting for DoD STIG, FDCC, Microsoft,
National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) and more. The simple
functionality of the SCAP templates, together with standards support,
will empower government organizations to leverage industry knowledge and
keep up-to-date with industry best practices. In addition, eEye will
proactively support new standards such as the Asset Reporting Format
(ARF) and Asset Summary Results (ASR) as they are released.
