A Modern Approach for Protecting Multi-Cloud Environments Using Qualys Total Cloud
Nayeem Islam, Vice President, Product Management, Qualys
Digital transformation has accelerated the push of IT into multi-cloud environments. Legacy on-premises solutions don’t do cloud, which means security and compliance stakeholders must adopt solutions designed for cloud-native requirements. Qualys TotalCloud is a cloud-native solution that provides unified vulnerability, threat, and posture management across a multi-cloud environment. This session describes the components of TotalCloud, including cloud-native application protection platform (CNAAP), cloud security posture management (CSPM), cloud workload protection (CWP), infrastructure as code (IaC), cloud detection and response (CDR), and container security (CS).
