Combined solution provides asset scanning and network analysis to reduce risk and improve security threat management
San Mateo, CA - October 10, 2006 - RedSeal Systems, Inc., a developer of innovative security risk management software, and Qualys, Inc., the leading provider of on demand vulnerability management and policy compliance solutions, today announced that RedSeal has applied its technology to Qualys’ on demand platform.
The combined offering gives enterprises the ability to model the network topology, determine what vulnerabilities are present on their network, and understand which vulnerable systems can actually be accessed based upon the network traffic filtering policies. All of this information is used to ultimately measure risk for asset groups and prioritize remediation.
RedSeal Systems is offering the Security Risk Manager (SRM) 3000 appliance at a promotional price that includes a complimentary trial of QualysGuard® Enterprise for a 90 day period.
“Customers want a solution that correlates vulnerability data with network access information in order to prioritize patching and mitigation activities,” said Philippe Courtot chairman and CEO of Qualys, Inc. “RedSeal visualization capabilities combined with the Qualys platform provides organizations with proactive risk intelligence in a package that is accurate, simple to deploy and easy to use.”
“We are pleased to see these two providers of proactive security come together in what is a natural technology partnership,” said Brad Robinson, Security Manager, Postini Inc. “The merging of Qualys’ results with RedSeal’s appliance makes high priority risk information quick and easy to identify, significantly reducing our time to remediation. It allows our security team to focus on keeping our systems as secure as they can be.”
The SRM 3000 provides a visualization of network risk and threat traversal by analyzing the configuration data of firewalls and routers as well as the detailed information provided by QualysGuard®. The output is a RiskMap™ or graphical display of network areas and key business assets that are at risk from threats. By navigating the RiskMap™, users see a consolidated view of network security exposure and can track the progress of remediation efforts through the SRM’s detailed out of box reports.
“Security risk management is quickly becoming an imperative for enterprises of all sizes and vulnerability scanning is a key input to that process,” said Joel Evanier, president and CEO of RedSeal Systems. “Our Qualys-based offering dramatically lowers the barriers to deployment while providing all of the components required for comprehensive security risk management.”
The RedSeal-Qualys SRM bundle is available today. Subscription service pricing begins at $5,000 for the first 90 days and includes the SRM 3000 appliance and support as well as the complimentary ninety-day QualysGuard® Enterprise trial subscription.
