New File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) service based on Qualys Cloud Agent enables organisations to increase visibility and security while removing point-product agents from their endpoints
New Indicators of Compromise (IOC) service provides continuous detection of compromised IT asset across endpoints, on-premise or elastic cloud environments
SAN FRANCISCO – RSA Conference USA 2017, Booth #N3817, – February 13, 2017 – Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, today announced a major expansion of its Qualys Cloud Platform which helps organisations continue to reduce the complexity and cost of security and compliance. New services include File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) and Indicators of Compromise (IOC) detection solutions that enable customers to consolidate even more critical security and compliance functions into a single cloud-based dashboard, and remove the point-solution sprawl that proliferates across their endpoints.
Qualys will showcase these new services during RSA Conference USA 2017 at booth #N3817.
Qualys now combines a comprehensive set of both prevention and detection solutions in the same lightweight Qualys Cloud Agent already deployed for an organisation’s global asset inventory, vulnerability management, and policy compliance programs. With Qualys FIM and IOC, customers can instantly add continuous visibility of breaches and system changes to their single-pane view of security and compliance posture already powered by the Cloud Agent.
“With FIM and IOC, Qualys has grown its platform capabilities to provide a comprehensive Security and Vulnerability Management offering that now provides breach detection, policy and compliance context, vulnerability information, and ultimately, a comprehensive view of enterprise risk management,” said Robert Ayoub, Research Director, Security Products, IDC. “The Qualys Cloud Platform can simplify the complexity associated with managing multiple security solutions, while at the same time increasing the automation, effectiveness and proactive nature of security.”
Qualys File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) – Qualys FIM logs and centrally tracks file change events across global IT systems, delivering users a single-view dashboard from which to detect and identify critical changes, incidents, and audit risks resulting from normal patching and administrative tasks, change control exceptions or violations, or malicious activity. As a cloud-based solution, Qualys FIM scales visibility and control to a variety of enterprise operating systems without the need to deploy and maintain complex security infrastructure. This allows teams to improve compliance, reduce downtime and limit damage resulting from compromise without the expense of a software-based solution. File Integrity Monitoring offers:
Qualys Indicators of Compromise (IOC) - Qualys IOC continuously monitors endpoint activity to detect suspicious activity that may indicate the presence of known malware, unknown variants, and threat actor activity on devices both on and off the network. Qualys IOC integrates endpoint detection, behavioral malware analysis, and threat hunting techniques that incorporate a continuous view of an asset’s vulnerability posture along with suspicious activity monitoring. Indicators of Compromise offers:
“Breaches continue to rise despite the investments in traditional mechanisms that organisations have deployed to support their businesses in the new era of digital transformation,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc. “Our new disruptive services for FIM and IOC extend the capabilities of our Cloud Agent platform, allowing companies to get the visibility and prevention they need against cyber threats from one single platform, drastically reducing their security costs.”
Qualys FIM and IOC provide significant benefits to security administrators – as delivered by the Qualys Cloud Agent and cloud-based processing platform – over traditional on-premise point security solutions:
Qualys FIM and IOC will both be available in limited beta starting in March.
