EiQ Networks Announces VulnerabilityVue and DiscoveryVue

EiQ Networks, a pioneer in continuous security intelligence, today announced the release of two new freemium security intelligence tools VulnerabilityVue™, a vulnerability analysis solution, and DiscoveryVue™, an asset discovery and management solution.

VulnerabilityVue automates the collection and analysis of vulnerability data from leading vulnerability analysis solutions, providing comprehensive reporting and analysis to automate SANS Critical Security controls implementation and assessment. DiscoveryVue helps companies to detect IT assets on a corporate network and categorize them as authorized or unauthorized nodes. DiscoveryVue helps organizations easily and proactively determine unknown nodes connecting to an organizations network to improve policy enforcement and cyber defenses.

These free and easy-to-deploy continuous security intelligence tools help resource-constrained organizations address security management acquisition and operational complexities and begin building an infrastructure to overcome procurement, deployment and operational challenges associated with traditional security management tools.

“As the frequency and severity of high profile data breaches continues to accelerate, it is critical that companies have an infrastructure in place to quickly identify and act on unauthorized network activity, and continuously diagnose and protect the nodes that are most vulnerable to an attack,” said Brian Mehlman, Senior Director of Product Management at EiQ Networks. “These new freemium products help in advancing continuous security intelligence, essential for cyber security and compliance by automating both vulnerability collection and analysis, and asset discovery and management so that companies can better identify and react to threats and security gaps before they are exploited by hackers.”

With the availability of VulnerabilityVue and DiscoveryVue, EiQ now provides a full suite of freemium tools, including LogVue, EventVue and FlowVue, which deliver centralized log management, event monitoring and network flow analysis.

VulnerabilityVue™

VulnerabilityVue is a vulnerability collection and analysis solution that centralizes vulnerability scan data from leading vulnerability scanners into a single console for easy analysis, reporting and monitoring. The free tool presents vulnerability results from Nessus, Qualys or Rapid 7 scanners in a clear red light/green light presentation to help organizations quickly assess vulnerable systems as recommended by the SANS institute. Users will be able to identify vulnerable systems and obtain appropriate remediation guidance.

DiscoveryVue™

DiscoveryVue from EiQ Networks is an asset discovery solution that uses NMAP to discover and inventory devices operating on an organization’s network. The free tool also provides the ability to create asset policies and continually monitor compliance against defined policy. In addition, users can easily identify authorized and unauthorized devices on their network as recommended by the SANS institute.
