Bee Ware and Qualys Announce Partnership to Industrialise Application Infrastructure Security
Bee Ware integrates QualysGuard WAS to its Web application protection platform i-Suite allowing security professionals to provision QualysGuard WAS in a single click, regardless of the number of applications being protected, and to benefit from a consolidated view of the security policies applied to the application infrastructures.
Paris, 12 March 2013 – Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud security and compliance management solutions, and Bee Ware, a pioneer in securing Web applications, today announced a collaborative partnership to provide an integrated solution for the management of application infrastructure security.
The burgeoning of mobility and the growth of online services provided by companies is encouraging the development of Web applications. To identify, categorise and maintain simple, secure management of these Web applications while guaranteeing performance and availability has become a real challenge for many organisations.
In response to these issues, Bee Ware and Qualys worked jointly to provide an integrated solution that combines the Web application protection platform i-Suite with QualysGuard Web Application Scanning (WAS), a Web application vulnerability scanner.
Bee Ware’s i-Suite platform is an all-in-one solution capable of protecting and managing all types of Web applications from a single management console. The Web Application Firewall (WAF), Web Services Firewall (WSF), and Web Access Management (WAM) modules provide security for applications while protecting the information system from external attacks and fraudulent login attempts.
Due to this integration, security professionals can now provision QualysGuard WAS in a single click, regardless of the number of applications being protected, and easily identify all Web application vulnerabilities (such as SQL injection, Cross Site Scripting (XSS), Slowloris, etc.). In addition, they also benefit from a consolidated view of the security policies applied to the application infrastructures (automatic building of white lists, reinforcement of controls on sensitive parameters, etc.).
Marc Vaillant, CEO of Bee Ware, emphasises the advantages of the collaboration: “We are very pleased to announce this partnership between Qualys and Bee Ware. By combining our respective skills, we can be the first to offer our customers maximum optimisation of their application security policies.”
Based on Qualys proprietary technologies for automated management of dynamic assets and tags, Qualys WAS provides a consolidated control panel listing all applications, both internal and external. In addition, this functionality enables generation of specific reports on certain vulnerabilities and their remediation, or on compliance requirements such as PCI DSS.
Philippe Courtot, Chairman and CEO of Qualys, commented: “Interoperability between security solutions has become essential to face the exponential growth of threats and in particular attacks on Web applications, which have become the gateway to the Internet and corporate networks. It is in this spirit that Qualys and Bee Ware have collaborated to deliver our common future users a fully integrated solution.’’
