With VMDR, Qualys integrates highly valued and much-needed asset visibility with vulnerability management so that IT teams can have full visibility of their global IT assets (known and unknown).Scott Crawford Research Vice President at 451 Research
VMDR raises the maturity of our Vulnerability Management program to its next level. It provides focus on actionable issues to drive the reduction of imminent risk without doing the analysis outside of the Qualys platform.Georges Bellefontaine Manager of Vulnerability Management at Toyota Financial Services
VMDR delivers unprecedented response capabilities including options for protecting remote users, which has become a top priority for CISOs in the current environment.Ryan Smith Vice President of Product at Armor
VMDR brings Vulnerability Management to the next level as it provides customers with a comprehensive platform that is easy to use and deploy across complex hybrid environments, which are a challenge for companies to secure.Rik Turner Principal Analyst at Omdia
Traditional endpoint solutions don't interface well with each other, creating integration headaches, false positives, and delays. Ultimately, devices are left unidentified, critical assets are misclassified, vulnerabilities are poorly prioritized, and patches don't get fully applied.
A new approach is required.
Discover, assess, prioritize, and patch critical vulnerabilities in real time and across your global hybrid-IT landscape — all from a single solution.
The Qualys Cloud Platform, combined with its powerful lightweight Cloud Agents, 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.
No need for bulky appliances. Everything is in the cloud and ready to run.
VMDR has the same vulnerability management solution that you have come to know and trust, as well as many other great apps.
Deployment is incredibly simple. With unlimited virtual scanners, you can spin a scanner up and be ready to go in no time.
Using a single cloud platform organizations save significant resources and the time required to otherwise install multiple agents, multiple consoles and integrations.
On-premises Device Inventory – Detect all devices and applications connected to the network including servers, databases, workstations, routers, printers, IoT devices, and more.
Certificate Inventory – Detect and catalog all TLS/SSL digital certificates (internal and external facing) from any Certificate Authority.
Cloud Inventory – Monitor users, instances, networks, storage, databases and their relationships for a continuous inventory of resources and assets across all public cloud platforms.
Container Inventory – Discover and track container hosts and their information – from build to runtime.
Mobile Device Inventory – Detect and catalog Android, iOS/iPadOS devices across the enterprise, with extensive information about the device, its configurations, and installed apps.
Mobile Device Vulnerability & Misconfiguration Assessment – Continuously detect device, OS, apps, and network vulnerabilities and monitor critical mobile device configurations.
Cloud Security Assessment – Continuously monitor and assess your PaaS/IaaS resources for misconfigurations and non-standard deployments.
Container Security Assessment – Scan container images and running containers in your environment for high-severity vulnerabilities, unapproved packages and drive remediation efforts. Includes the ability to scan in the build phase with plug-ins for CI/CD tools and registries.
Threat Detection & Prioritization
Knowing what’s active in a global hybrid-IT environment is fundamental to security. 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.
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.
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.
After prioritizing vulnerabilities by risk, 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.
