Since our founding in 1999, Qualys’ vision has been that security must be woven into the fabric of the cloud,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys.“ We are delighted to work with Microsoft to achieve this vision, which is a major milestone for the industry. Now, Microsoft Azure developers and customers have real-time visibility to secure and remediate cloud workloads at a click of a button with built-in orchestration as well.”
