“Over the past year, the majority of PCI approved scanning vendors have adopted the first generation of our On Demand PCI platform. During that time we continued to work with our customers and partners to make the PCI compliance process as easy and effective as possible for both small and large organizations,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys. “QualysGuard PCI 2.0 reflects this effort and the valuable feedback we received over the past 12 months. We sincerely thank our partners and large customers who help us deliver such significant enhancements.”
