eEye is committed to open communication with the broader IT security world, in an effort to educate and inform
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) October 13, 2010
eEye Digital Security, a leading provider of IT security vulnerability management solutions, today announced its upcoming Vulnerability Expert Forum (VEF) will comprehensively address the largest Patch Tuesday to-date, covering 16 patches and 51 vulnerabilities.
eEye’s VEF sessions are held online, the second Wednesday of each month, the day after Patch Tuesday, when Microsoft discloses their monthly patches. This month’s session will be held October 13, 2010 at 11 AM (Pacific) / 2 PM (Eastern). It gives all attendees the opportunity to win an iPod Nano via the eEye Twitter page.
VEF sessions provide insight and information on recently announced critical vulnerabilities from Microsoft and other software vendors, as well as:
- A complete analysis of the latest critical vulnerabilities, vendor patches, and zero day threats
- Detailed assessment of the true criticality of each patch to best prioritize rollout
- Expert guidance on the actions necessary to protect your systems
eEye’s VEF is one of several free, online resources that the company provides to the IT security community. Minute with Maiffret, announced earlier this month, provides fast, expert commentary on security issues. Zero Day Tracker, announced at the end of September, provides a catalogue of the newest zero day vulnerabilities, instructions for quick remediation, and a historical record of past vulnerabilities.
“eEye is committed to open communication with the broader IT security world, in an effort to educate and inform,” said Marc Maiffret, eEye cofounder and CTO. “We go beyond just building our research findings into our solutions; we also want to share this knowledge directly with those on the frontlines of enterprise security to make them more successful.”
