Datapipe Adds Digital Security Options to its MSS Solutions

Hoboken, NJ — January 5, 2005 — Datapipe, a global provider of managed hosting services, announced today a new addition to its managed security solutions. This announcement greatly expands options available for clients seeking vulnerability management services. Much of the market offering is limited to either limited functionality open source platforms or re-selling other packaged managed security services, providing little opportunity for service customization or attractive margins.

“These new products allow us to greatly expand the depth and breadth of our vulnerability assessment offering,” said Robb Allen, CEO of Datapipe. “This unique combination of vulnerability assessment and vulnerability prevention on a single platform offers stellar end-to-end vulnerability management.”

This new program provides on-demand vulnerability assessment, remediation and prevention as a managed security service. By adopting eEye’s programs, such as retina scanners, host intrusion prevention and vulnerability mitigation, end users can address regulatory compliance and security policy enforcement issues.

“This program’s creation is the culmination of eEye’s success with our existing channel program”, said Firas Raouf, Chief Operating Officer of eEye Digital Security. “The managed service program is a reflection of the growing needs of service providers to deliver a higher end vulnerability management offering backed by eEye’s world-renowned security research and software.”

eEye is the only vendor that can provide MSPs with an end-to-end vulnerability management platform. This platform includes the Retina ® product line for vulnerability assessment and remediation automation, and the Blink ® product line for host intrusion prevention and vulnerability mitigation. The two product lines are augmented by a management console that delivers an enterprise centric remediation management workflow for facilitating optimal resolution of vulnerabilities.
