    eEye Digital Security's Technology Selected for DISA Task Order Valued
    at Over $6 Million to Provide Information Assurance Vulnerability
    ALISO VIEJO, Calif.--June 23, 2004--(Secure Configuration Compliance
    Validation Tool)    
    eEye(R) Digital Security, a leading developer of vulnerability
    management software for enterprise security, today announced that the
    Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has selected eEye's
    vulnerability management software in conjunction with a Task Order under
    the DISA I-ASSURE Contract to serve as the basis for an Information
    Assurance Vulnerability Management (IAVM) solution worth up to $6
    million if all options are exercised. The requirement was sponsored by
    the United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) on behalf of the
    Department of Defense. 
    Under the Task Order, eEye and its partner DigitalNet (Nasdaq:DNET), a
    premier provider of network computing solutions, will develop and deploy
    an automated IAVM tool that will provide network administrators and
    security personnel a mechanism for verifying application or
    non-application of Department of Defense (DoD) Computer Emergency
    Response Team (CERT) Information Assurance Vulnerability Management
    Notices. The IAVM tool will scan networks in order to mitigate security
    vulnerabilities found in software and those related to incorrect system
    configurations, as well as security issues related to policy and
    compliance. This proactive approach to security -- eliminating
    vulnerabilities rather than thwarting attacks -- allows the DoD to
    better secure the vital digital assets under its purview. 
    The eEye/DigitalNet IAVM solution offered to DISA includes an integrated
    family of vulnerability management solutions to help DoD safeguard their
    digital assets. This solution will dramatically mitigate the DoD's risk
    from attack and significantly reduce the likelihood that potential
    attacks can penetrate its networks and cause security breaches and
    financial loss. This solution includes Retina(R) Network Security
    Scanner and REM(TM) Security Management Console. eEye's flagship
    product, the Retina Network Security Scanner, leads the industry in
    accuracy, its ability to scan enterprise networks without crashing
    systems and its open, modular architecture, making it the easiest
    product on the market to deploy, use and integrate with existing
    enterprise applications. 
    "The DoD will represent one of the largest deployments of vulnerability
    management software anywhere in the world," stated Firas Raouf, eEye's
    COO. "eEye's industry-leading accuracy, scale and ease of integration
    with large networks make us ideally suited for this type of
    implementation. Already, our unique approach to network security has
    resulted in over 7,500 customer deployments worldwide."
