FOSTER CITY, Calif. – Aug. 22, 2019 – Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, today announced Wendy M.

“It is exciting to join the Qualys board at a time when the company is significantly expanding the depth of its cloud platform well beyond vulnerability management,” said Pfeiffer. “As a technologist, I’m interested in sharing in Qualys’ journey to bring increasing capability, scalability and value to modern IT.”
“We are delighted to have Wendy join our board. As the CIO of Nutanix, she brings in-depth knowledge of the challenges CIOs face as they work to manage and secure an ever more complex hybrid IT environment,” said Philippe Courtot chairman and CEO of Qualys. “Her perspective will be invaluable as Qualys delivers its new Global IT Asset Discovery and Inventory app to provide companies with a single source of truth for their IT environment.
