eEye Digital Security announced the availability of Retina OnDemand, which provides network security via the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. By using the SaaS model, Retina OnDemand simplifies the deployment process, which allows businesses to rapidly adopt the service to manage job-scheduling, reports, and results through REM, eEye’s centralized security management console for any size deployment small to large.
Using the SaaS model eliminates the need to configure and maintain servers, databases and software. Also referred to a hosted solution, SaaS is a software delivery method that provides access to software remotely as a Web-based service. Since SaaS pricing is based on a subscription fee, the model allows customers to access Retina OnDemand at a lower cost as compared to installing the software on-site as a licensed application. Due to the software’s remote hosting, businesses do not need to invest in additional hardware.
Retina OnDemand detects illegal traffic and fundamental flaws, and it recommends actions for remediation and mitigation. Utilizing advanced auditing techniques to non-intrusively determine if a host is vulnerable to exploits and data loss, the solution combines eEye’s Retina Network Security Scanner, Iris Network Traffic Analyzer and Blink Professional Host-based Intrusion Prevention solution into a single service that provides multi-platform network discovery and scalable vulnerability assessment for any size network environment.
Upon licensing Retina OnDemand, eEye Digital Security will install the required number of Retina 651 Security Management Appliances according to each customer’s needs. eEye configures the appliances so customers can simply log-on to a secure eEye Internet site to access the REM console and fully scan their environment, review results, generate reports and download information.
