Brian Penn, Manager, Security Posture at Aflac

“Qualys VMDR has helped us improve our program by providing additional threat and risk context to better identify high-risk vulnerabilities. The transparency of the rating algorithm also made it easy to justify prioritization and align all relevant security and IT stakeholder so we could move quickly to remediate the risk.”

Ævar Svan Sigurðsson, Service Manager at Advania

“We performed a proof-of-concept exercise for the Qualys Cloud Platform, and the solutions ticked all of the boxes. Qualys offers accurate and reliable monitoring of vulnerabilities, with very low rates of false positives; allows for prompt management and resolution of potential threats; and helps us achieve full compliance with our internal and external security standards.”
