Compliance Monitoring Solutions: Policy Compliance | Security Assessment Questionnaire | PCI

As part of a comprehensive security program, your organization must enforce internal policies, comply with external regulatory mandates, and assess the risk of doing business with vendors and other third parties.

With constantly evolving regulatory mandates, industry best practices, and the increasing complexity in today’s IT environments, you need the clarity, control and flexibility of a cloud-based solution to automate assessment of security and compliance controls in order to demonstrate a repeatable and trackable process to auditors and stakeholders.

Sharpen & simplify compliance monitoring with Qualys’ cloud-based platform

Qualys’ compliance monitoring solutions automate the complex task of assessing procedural and technical controls for vendor risk management, internal IT compliance, and general best practices for securing your IT systems.

PC performs security configuration assessments on IT systems throughout your network, while PCI checks specifically for compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), including the requirement that organizations maintain secure web applications.

SAQ streamlines an organization’s vendor risk management process, including the design, distribution, tracking, aggregation and management of multiple internal and external risk assessment surveys from a web-based central console.

These applications are delivered via the Enterprise TruRisk Platform, so there’s no significant infrastructure to purchase, maintain and manage. This enables you to deploy quickly to continuously monitor compliance across a global scale. Centralized user management provides the right stakeholders access to the right information, allowing your organization to focus on improving security instead of managing complex tool deployments.
