Copenhagen, Denmark – November 25, 2013 – ImmuneSecurity, the Danish IT security company and Qualys Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud security and compliance solutions, today announced a strategic alliance partnership to offer the award winning QualysGuard® suite of cloud security and compliance solutions to ImmuneSecurity’s customers in the Nordic region, helping them automate the process of identifying security vulnerabilities, track remediation and meet regulatory compliance requirements.
Jesper Zerlang, CEO for ImmuneSecurity said: “We have always provided our customers with vulnerability management alongside our Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) offering. We evaluated multiple vendors in the market and Qualys was the obvious choice from both a product and commercial perspective. The agility and quality built into the QualysGuard Cloud Platform allows us to transition customers across easily and use the intelligence delivered to enhance our solutions and services.”
Under the partnership, ImmuneSecurity will offer the QualysGuard Cloud Platform and its integrated suite of IT security and compliance solutions – including Vulnerability Management, Web Application Scanning, PCI and Policy Compliance – to its Nordic customers. The agreement also allows ImmuneSecurity to integrate QualysGuard security and compliance data into their SIEM solution, LogPoint, to provide reports to customers and improve the correlation with security incidents and alerts generated by the system.
“The information available to customers is now more detailed and precise, meaning that we are able to provide a much more coherent solution. The customers now have the opportunity to spend time analysing the data instead of finding it, and therefore improving the quality of our customers’ network security,” said Zerlang.
“ImmuneSecurity offers comprehensive SIEM and penetration testing services and has earned a high reputation for delivering quality services to Nordic customers,” said Philippe Courtot, Chairman and CEO for Qualys. “We are pleased to have forged this partnership that provides organisations with a comprehensive, affordable security and compliance offering.”
With this partnership, ImmuneSecurity customers can now focus their efforts on proactive monitoring of security threats, rapid trouble-shooting and advanced correlation of security incidents while reducing costs and increasing efficiency.
