SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM)

Manage your security posture and risk across your entire SaaS application stack

Qualys SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) automates the entire process of managing your SaaS apps, including global settings, user privileges, licenses, files, and their security and compliance posture. Qualys SSPM is an integral part of Qualys TotalCloud solution, allowing organizations to start and stay secure in their cloud environments.

One Security and Compliance Platform for All Your SaaS Apps

Get continuous visibility into your SaaS applications and fix security and compliance issues with one click. Qualys SSPM brings clarity and control into your SaaS stack by providing in-depth user and device visibility, data security insights, proactive posture monitoring, and automated remediation of threats – all from a single screen.


User and Device Visibility

Continuous visibility is fundamental to security. Qualys SSPM automatically inventories all your SaaS application users and user groups (internal and external) and the files and folders they own and have access to. It also gathers detailed information on endpoints, such as asset details, location, running services, installed software, and much more – all in a unified view.

Powerful Access Controls

SaaS deployments lack the tools to manage users and data access rights effectively. Qualys SSPM gives you complete control to quickly review and assign proper access at a granular level – all from a single interface.

Data Exposure Insights

SaaS applications are a “black box” for IT and security teams. Qualys SSPM shines a spotlight on your SaaS applications and third-party apps so that you can immediately identify security weaknesses like incorrect permissions, at-risk files, file changes, misconfiguration issues, critical vulnerabilities, and exploits using advanced threat intelligence.

Security and Compliance Posture Management

The key to protection against state-of-the-art cybersecurity attacks, like SolarWinds, is continuous detection and monitoring of security weaknesses targeted by attackers. Qualys SSPM provides continuous and automated security posture and configuration assessments of your SaaS applications and enforces compliance with industry benchmarks like O365 via CIS, PCI-DSS, NIST.

Unified, Context-Based Alerts

Get real-time alerts based on the full context of users and their endpoints to accurately determine risk. Qualys SSPM collects and uses multiple data insights to configure alerts, like user rights, device location, file changes, vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, advanced threats, and more.

Automated Remediation

Knowing what to fix is only part of the equation. Qualys SSPM makes it easy to proactively ensure that only the right users can access your SaaS applications and files. Custom alerts let you know as soon as critical security misconfigurations or other issues are detected. It also automatically patches misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, and threats with a single click.

Control Over Third-party Applications

There are thousands of approved and unapproved consumer and enterprise add-ons, plug-ins, tools, and utilities that your users can link to your SaaS applications – often for free and without your consent. Qualys SSPM detects them all so that you can assess the risk and block access.

  • External app permissions: Qualys SSPM reveals all third-party software tools that have been granted access by your users.

  • Activity details: See what potentially invasive permission issues these tools can do, such as viewing users’ SaaS suite profiles, reading their emails, or accessing their cloud storage.

  • Risk assessment: Determine if external applications are deny-listed, suspicious, or have weak security that can be easily compromised.
