Retina CS Enterprise Vulnerability Management
BeyondTrust Retina CS is the only vulnerability management solution designed from the ground up to provide organizations with context-aware vulnerability assessment and risk analysis. Retina’s results-driven architecture works with users to proactively identify security exposures, analyze business impact, and plan and conduct remediation across network, web, mobile, cloud and virtual infrastructure.
Retina 5.20 New and Updated Features
Both Retina Network Security Scanner and Retina CS Enterprise Vulnerability Management benefit from the v5.20 updates, which offer expanded scanning coverage for virtual, web and network environments. As a result, IT and security leaders gain the visibility they need to better understand and mitigate the data breach risks facing their organizations.
Retina CS Vulnerability Management Manifesto
Most vulnerability management solutions do little to help security leaders put vulnerability and risk information in the context of business. Saddled with volumes of rigid data and static reports, the security team is left to manually discern real threats and determine how to act upon them. At BeyondTrust, we believe that security professionals deserve more from their vulnerability management solutions.
Retina CS Reporting
Retina CS provides results-driven reporting and analytics capabilities that bring risk into focus enterprise-wide. Through Retina’s intuitive dashboard interface, you simply indicate the type of information you need, such as an SLA report or a HIPAA compliance report, and define the business context of your assets. Retina then delivers targeted, relevant and actionable vulnerability data in a wide variety of formats.

In many sports, as in business, teams will promote a strategy to gain an edge – even if the concept is possibly flawed. Consider an American football hurry-up offense: will it cause the defense to stumble, or will it just exhaust the offense? The play has potential pros and cons, and many strategic technologies are... more

From time to time, the field engineering team and I see the same request cross our desks in a short period of time. This time it was how to remove certain types of audits from running when performing a vulnerability scan originating from Retina CS. The old way of doing things would have required the... more
I honestly believe we have the best pre-sales, post sales, and technical support departments in the security industry. They are responsive, technical, and can customize BeyondTrust solutions to match individual business requirements, even when they are pretty comprehensive outside-of-the-box. Based on their work, we have an internal process and external knowledge base to document these... moreSee all Retina CS blog posts
