Unifying Cloud-Native Application Protection

Discover, Assess, Prioritize, Defend, and Remediate vulnerabilities, threats, and misconfigurations across a multi-cloud environment

Qualys TotalCloud with TrueRisk

Discover: Complete visibility and insights into cyber-risk exposure across multi-cloud

Continuously discover and monitor all your workloads across a multi-cloud environment for a 360-degree view of your cloud footprint. Identify known and previously unknown internet-facing assets for 100% visibility and tracking of risks.

Assess: Comprehensive cloud-native assessments with FlexScanTM

Extensive scanning capabilities with Qualys FlexScan, including no-touch, agentless, API- and snapshot-based scanning, along with agent- and network-based scanning for in-depth assessment. Use these multiple scanning methods to scan a workload to get a unified and comprehensive view of vulnerabilities and misconfigurations.

Prioritize: Unified security view to prioritize cloud risk with TruRiskTM

Experience a unified risk-based view of cloud security with insights across workloads, services, and resources. Qualys TruRisk quantifies security risk by workload criticality and vulnerabilities; it correlates with ransomware, malware, and exploitation threat intelligence to prioritize, trace, and reduce risk.

Defend: Real-time protection against evolving and unknown threats with InstaProtectTM

Qualys enables continuous monitoring of all cloud assets to ensure they are protected against threats and attacks at runtime. Qualys keeps your cloud runtime safe by detecting known and unknown threats across the entire kill chain in near real-time across a multi-cloud environment.

Remediate: Fast remediation with QFlow – no code, drag-and-drop workflows

The integration of QFlow technology into Qualys TotalCloud saves security and DevOps teams valuable time and resources. Automation and no-code, drag-and-drop workflows help simplify the time-consuming operational tasks of assessing vulnerabilities on ephemeral cloud assets, alerting on high-priority threats, remediating misconfigurations, and quarantining high-risk assets.

Flexible scanning methods

Multi-vector scanning with no-touch, agentless, API- and snapshot-based scanning and agent- and network-based scanning for in-depth assessment.

Complete posture visibility in under 10 mins

Rapidly assess all your cloud resources, including transient and ephemeral resources, for vulnerabilities and misconfigurations with a “Risk-based” view in under 10 minutes

Detect vulnerabilities that others miss

Six Sigma (99.99966%) accuracy with any scanning method avoids alert fatigue and reduces the risk of breaches

Real-time detection

Continuous detection of known and unknown threats - ransomware, malware, and active exploitation in real-time with deep-learning artificial intelligence techniques.

Qualys TotalCloud detects malware at least four hours faster than our previous approach. Earlier detection is crucial, because the sooner we can identify and act on threats such as zero-days, the lower the risk that an attack will succeed and spread through our network.

Nemi George Vice President, Information Security Officer Watch the video

Deploying Qualys CDR for AWS and Azure with just a few clicks, in a matter of minutes, across multiple AWS and Azure subscriptions, was a game changer for our security team. We have a complex environment with many controls, and TotalCloud team worked with us on integration with existing solutions including Secure Web Gateways and integrated SIEM. With their engineering team, together made sure all the security finds were tightly integrated with our SIEM platform. I have rarely seen this level of competency and engagement effort from a vendor.

Mark Wootton Head of Trust & Vulnerability Management, Centrica

Qualys is enhancing its widely used platform to deliver visibility, context, speed, automation, and orchestration in a comprehensive solution to help organizations scale their security and compliance programs for modern software development. Qualys TotalCloud incorporates security into development workflows, enabling them to release secure, reliable code, while giving security teams the control and visibility they need to manage risk by reducing their attack exposure and rapidly responding to threats.
