The Qualys Technology Alliance with Splunk Delivers Enhanced Security Data Analytics
New Qualys Add-on for Splunk® Enterprise and Splunk Enterprise Security Provides Real-time Security Analytics on Qualys Data for Breach Detection and Response
LAS VEGAS – Oct. 7, 2015 – Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, today announced a technology alliance with Splunk Inc. to help enterprises visualize and better protect their IT infrastructure from cyber attacks. The Qualys App for Splunk® Enterprise provides customers with real-time threat intelligence and alerts in a single dashboard to more efficiently secure their IT infrastructure. The Qualys Add-on for Splunk has been submitted for Splunk certification and enables visualizations of Qualys data within Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Enterprise Security.
“The native integration of Qualys data in Splunk Enterprise Security is an exciting addition for our joint customers, adding an additional layer of insight to help identify cyber attacks,” said Haiyan Song, senior vice president of security markets, Splunk. “Now, customers can make Qualys’ data immediately actionable in Splunk Enterprise Security, further reinforcing Splunk’s role as the nerve center for our customers’ most demanding environments and security requirements.”
As the C-suite recognizes more and more that security is an important part of Operational Intelligence, the Qualys App for Splunk Enterprise will offer access to valuable, integrated vulnerability data to enable security and IT teams to more efficiently gather information needed to identify where and when an organization may be vulnerable to attack.
“Security analytics provides us with much-needed insight into potential threats to our environment. The Qualys App for Splunk Enterprise has given us a new way to look at analytics, enabling faster detection by prioritizing vulnerability and event data,” said Michael C. Ibarra, president and CEO, Hawk Technologies, Inc. “One of the biggest benefits I’ve seen is the ability to transform vulnerability data into customized, dynamic reports and dashboards to help identify and respond to the most critical threats in the perimeter.”
The Qualys Add-on and Qualys App for Splunk Enterprise are compliant with Splunk’s Common Information Model (CIM), allowing Qualys data to be easily ingested into Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Enterprise Security and correlated with other industry feeds. The add-on provides extraction, transformation and load (ETL) capabilities to synchronize up-to-date Qualys VM data into Splunk Enterprise Security using the Qualys Cloud Platform APIs. The app streamlines importing Qualys vulnerability and KnowledgeBase data into Splunk Enterprise, which provides a set of dashboards and visualizations for insights including summary charts, top hosts affected, most prevalent vulnerabilities, IP lookup, IPs matching a given vulnerability, as well as remediation status and trending data. The dashboard also includes preconfigured searches and reports, and can be configured to display data in formats and aggregations that match the organization’s specific needs.
“The speed and sophistication of today’s cyber attacks are challenging organizations to keep their IT infrastructure secure,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc. “Through this alliance with Splunk, we can now provide customers complete visibility into their IT systems in a Splunk-friendly format to quickly identify where vulnerabilities may exist along with contextual awareness so they can more effectively take action against potential threats.”
