Retina Protection Agent

Local vulnerability assessment and zero-day protection for your transient computing systems, and for those which require
added levels of protection from today’s complex threats. Retina Protection Agent is included with
the Retina CS Enterprise Vulnerability Management solution.

Stronger Networks Through Host Based Security

Remote vulnerability assessment will protect most systems, but what about those blocked by firewalls or segregated from the network? What about mobile and offline devices? These are potential gaps that could be exploited.

The Retina Protection Agent, included with Retina CS, closes the security gap created by systems that can't be reached with remote vulnerability assessments alone by providing a lightweight agent for local vulnerability assessment, continuous zero-day vulnerability monitoring, and intrusion prevention. Get complete risk discovery even for systems that are offline or disconnected from the network or 'exception' systems that can’t be changed due to external regulations. And, with RPA, you get an additional layer of protection with continuous zero-day vulnerability monitoring and intrusion prevention.

Local Vulnerability Assessment
Provides local vulnerability assessment capabilities to close the gap created by systems that can't be reached with a remote vulnerability assessment alone.
Zero-Day Protection and Intrusion Prevention
Provides zero-day protection where a vendor has not yet created signatures or patches to protect against vulnerabilities in their operating system or application.
Storage Protection
Prevents data leakage by regulating usage of USB and Firewire storage devices, helping demonstrate institutional control for highly-regulated organizations.
Centralized Visibility
Provides full visibility into both remote and local vulnerabilities through the Retina CS Management Console and the integrated Retina Insight Threat Intelligence Module.
  • Locally secure: Increased security through comprehensive local vulnerability scanning
  • Solid foundation: Based upon the industry’s most respected vulnerability scanning technology, Retina Network Security Scanner.
  • Simple migration: Faster mitigation with risk-level vulnerability prioritization with Retina CS.
  • Efficient: Optimized network performance through non-intrusive scanning.

3/4/2015
