Qualys WAS Scales Easily, Finds Vulnerabilities & Automatically Eradicates Malware

Download Paper

Qualys respects your privacy.

Web applications constitute a new attack surface and reside outside of the traditional control of network managers. To address this challenge, Qualys built cloud-based Web Application Security. It is a unique and giant step towards complete automation of your web application security that produces consistent results, reduces false positives, and easily scales.

Web application security metrics

Qualys Web Application Security consists of Qualys Web Application Scanning (WAS) that tightly integrates with the Qualys Web Application Firewall (WAF). Together, they provide true, integrated web application security. It’s a next-generation, multi-layered solution that addresses the security of one of the most vulnerable parts of any IT environment.

With actionable web application security metrics, you can control and improve your organization’s vulnerability to web application threats. As H. James Harrington said, “Measurement [or metrics] is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If you can’t measure something, you can’t understand it. If you can’t understand it, you can’t control it. If you can’t control it, you can’t improve it.”

WAS via the cloud

With Web Application Scanning via the cloud, you can:

  • Scale seamlessly from a handful of apps to thousands
  • Accurately find OWASP vulnerabilities and learn how to eliminate them
  • Automatically eradicate malware infections on your websites
  • Find vulnerabilities with WAS, then mitigate them with WAF

WAS helps you reduce risk by automatically finding the official and “unofficial” applications that may be hiding in your environment.
