Business Hall Theater A

Navigating threat landscape for first party, third party and Open Source Software

August 9, 2023 - 10:20 AM

Mehul Revankar, VP, Product Management and Engineering for VMDR, Qualys

In the realm of cybersecurity, understanding attacker behavior and anticipating their next actions are vital to outmaneuvering and preventing cybercrime. Over the years, attackers have refined their attack patterns, gaining a clear understanding of what strategies are effective to compromise systems. To effectively counter these threats, defenders must gain insight into the targets of these attackers embedded within components and holistically address vulnerabilities in both first-party, third-party, and open-source software (OSS).

This presentation delves into the latest landscape of vulnerability threats, highlighting the common vulnerabilities exploited by attackers to compromise systems, and the tactics they employ for lateral movement.

We invite you to join us and gain comprehensive knowledge to enhance your cybersecurity defenses and foster proactive measures against continually evolving threats.

10:20 AM Discover, Assess the Risk of Open Source Software (OSS) Vulnerabilities with VMDR
Himanshu Kathpal, Senior Director, Product Management, Platform & Sensors, Qualys

Open-source components are crucial in software development, providing community-vetted code that speeds up progress but requires extreme caution regarding security vulnerabilities and licensing compliance. Join this session as we showcase how Software Composition Analysis (SCA) scan with the same Qualys Cloud Agent empowers businesses to gain comprehensive visibility into the software components used within their applications, enabling them to identify and mitigate vulnerabilities proactively. This new capability can be enabled with a single click and empowers you to proactively identify and mitigate security issues, preparing you for situations like the Log4j outbreak. Stay one step ahead of attackers with Qualys SCA and strengthen your software security today.

2:20 PM Detect Unknown Assets Passively with the Same Qualys Agent
Himanshu Kathpal, Senior Director, Product Management, Platform & Sensors, Qualys

The curse of unknown assets is that they are known to attackers but remain unnoticed by organizations. Around 69% of organizations have faced attacks targeting these "unknown, unmanaged, or poorly managed" assets. Join Qualys as we unveil the groundbreaking Qualys Cloud Agent Passive Sensor (CAPS), which provides continuous and seamless detection of every asset on your network. With CAPS, you can bid farewell to any blind spots in both your IT and OT environments as it ensures uninterrupted monitoring of all assets. Natively integrated on the Enterprise TruRisk Platform, customers will get a consolidated view of known and unknown assets spanning all environments to measure risk and proactively reduce exposure.

5:00 PM EDR That Patches
Utpal Desai, Senior Director, Product Management, Cloud Agent Platform, Qualys

Today’s reality: Cyber attackers often infiltrate and exploit an organization in hours or even minutes, while the average time for defenders to detect and respond to threats remains stubbornly high, often days or weeks. Traditional endpoint protection and EDR solutions operate without the context of asset criticality, vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and missing patches, creating huge inefficiencies for security teams. Simply detecting and responding to malware incidents as they happen is no longer enough; to reduce risk in today’s dynamic threat landscape, you must tear down the walls that create technology silos and give your defenders the advantage they need. Learn how Qualys is helping organizations to unite endpoint protection with vulnerability and patch management, driving powerful outcomes for organizations.
