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.
“Retina significantly improved network security, facilitates security compliance, and continues to be an important solution in the enterprise. ”Martin Maxwell

Earlier this year Dell’s SecureWorks published an analysis of a malware they named “Skeleton Key”. This malware bypasses authentication for Active Directory users who have single-factor (password only) authentication. The “Skeleton Key” attack as documented by the SecureWorks CTU relies on several critical parts. more

Windows & IT Security Expert, Russell Smith shows you how to configure Microsoft’s free Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) tool to secure local administrator accounts. Organizations often use the same password for local administrator accounts across all devices, leaving them vulnerable to Pass-the-Hash (PtH) attacks, which can result in sensitive domain credentials being exposed. LAPS automates regular changes of local administrator passwords, and securely stores passwords in Active Directory (AD). more
