QualysGuard® is now called the Qualys Cloud Platform
The Qualys Cloud Platform, previously known as QualysGuard, is the foundation of our portfolio of products, services and solutions for IT, security and compliance.
Qualys Cloud Platform consists of integrated apps to help organizations simplify security operations and lower the cost of compliance by delivering critical security intelligence on demand and automating the full spectrum of auditing, compliance and protection for all your IT assets – on premises, in clouds and on mobile endpoints.
The apps' capabilities include asset discovery and inventory, vulnerability management, remediation prioritization, compliance monitoring, container security, web application scanning and firewall, file integrity monitoring, endpoint detection and response and others.
Qualys Cloud Platform
Delivered via a multi-tenant shared cloud service or a private cloud, the Qualys Cloud Platform is the first platform that provides you with continuous security and compliance, allowing you to monitor, detect and protect your global network with instant, unparalleled "single-pane-of-glass" visibility.
Qualys Cloud Apps
The Qualys Cloud Platform's integrated apps can be accessed via an easy-to-use, fully customizable central portal that aggregates and correlates all of your IT security and compliance data in one place. In addition, a full set of APIs automates exchanging data in and out of the platform.
Our portfolio of self-updating, cloud-based apps includes Global AssetView, CMDB Sync (SYN), Certificate Inventory (CRI), Vulnerability Management (VM), Threat Protection (TP), Continuous Monitoring (CM), Patch Management (PM), Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR), Certificate Assessment (CRA), Cloud Inventory (CI), Cloud Security Assessment (CSA), Container Security (CS), Web Application Scanning (WAS), Web Application Firewall (WAF) Policy Compliance (PC), Security Configuration Assessment (SCA), PCI Compliance (PCI), File Integrity Monitoring (FIM), Security Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ), and Out-of-Band Configuration Assessment (OCA).
With our integrated, centrally managed apps, you:
- consolidate your security and compliance stack,
- improve your detection and response capabilities,
- slash IT complexity and costs, and
- support your business by building security natively into your digital transformation efforts.
Each app name is preceded by Qualys and followed by its name or acronym – e.g. Qualys VM or Qualys WAS.
