VMDR with Patch Management

Cut vulnerabilities by 85% and reduce MTTR by 40%

A vulnerability represents a real risk to an organization. Having a risk-based focus that combines Vulnerability Management (VM) and patch management solutions is the best way customers can reduce MTTR and reduce cyber risk.


Qualys VMDR has helped us improve our program by providing additional threat and risk context to better identify high-risk vulnerabilities. The transparency of the rating algorithm also made it easy to justify prioritization and align all relevant security and IT stakeholders so we could move quickly to remediate the risk.

VMDR with Patch Management Key Features

Qualys VMDR covers all your rapid remediation needs, leveraging risk-based VM and easy-to-use no-code workflows. VMDR is priced on a per-asset basis and does not require a software update to start. Sign up for a free trial or request a quote.

Enterprise TruRisk Platform, combined with its powerful lightweight Cloud Agent, Virtual Scanners, and Network Analysis (passive scanning) capabilities bring together all four key elements of an effective vulnerability management program into a single app unified by powerful out-of-the-box orchestration workflows.

Qualys VMDR enables organizations to automatically discover every asset in their environment, including unmanaged assets appearing on the network, inventory all hardware and software, and classify and tag critical assets. VMDR continuously assesses these assets for the latest vulnerabilities and applies the latest threat intel analysis to prioritize actively exploitable vulnerabilities.

Finally, VMDR automatically detects the latest superseding patch for the vulnerable asset and easily deploys it for remediation. By delivering all this in a single app workflow, VMDR automates the entire process and significantly accelerates an organization’s ability to respond to threats, thus preventing possible exploitation.

Qualys VMDR with Qualys TruRisk™ automates asset identification and categorization.

Automated asset identification and categorization

Knowing what’s active in a global hybrid-IT environment is fundamental to security. Qualys VMDR enables customers to automatically discover and categorize known and unknown assets, continuously identify unmanaged assets, and create automated workflows to manage them effectively.

After the data is collected, customers can instantly query assets and any attributes to get deep visibility into hardware, system configuration, applications, services, network information, and more.

Qualys VMDR with Qualys TruRisk™ automates asset identification and categorization.
Qualys VMDR with Qualys TruRisk™ detects vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in real-time.

Real-time vulnerability and misconfiguration detection

Qualys VMDR enables customers to automatically detect vulnerabilities and critical misconfigurations per CIS benchmarks, broken out by asset. Misconfigurations lead to breaches and compliance failures, creating vulnerabilities on assets without common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs). VMDR continuously identifies critical vulnerabilities and misconfigurations on the industry’s widest range of devices, including mobile devices, operating systems and applications.

Qualys VMDR with Qualys TruRisk™ detects vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in real-time.

Automated vulnerability remediation prioritization with context

Qualys VMDR uses real-time threat intelligence, advanced correlation and powerful machine learning models to automatically prioritize the riskiest vulnerabilities on your most critical assets – reducing potentially thousands of discovered vulnerabilities, to the few hundred that matter. Indicators such as Exploitable, Actively Attacked, and High Lateral Movement bubble up current vulnerabilities that are at risk while machine learning models highlight vulnerabilities most likely to become severe threats, providing multiple levels of prioritization.

Further prioritize remediation by assigning a business impact to each asset, like devices that contain sensitive data, mission-critical applications, public-facing, accessible over the Internet, etc.

Qualys VMDR with Qualys TruRisk™ put vulnerability patching and remediation at your fingertips.

Patching and remediation at your fingertips

After prioritizing vulnerabilities by risk, Qualys VMDR rapidly remediates targeted vulnerabilities, across any size environment, by deploying the most relevant superseding patch. Additionally, policy-based, automated recurring jobs keep systems up to date, providing proactive patch management for security and non-security patches. This significantly reduces the vulnerabilities the operations team has to chase down as part of a remediation cycle.
