Qualys’ continuous security platform enables customers to easily detect and identify vulnerable systems and apps, helping them better face the challenges of growing cloud workloads.Nicole Herskowitz Senior Director of Product Marketing, Cloud Platform at Microsoft
Applications and data on your premises have been moved to Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud. You’re responsible for making sure those public cloud workloads are secure and compliant. Qualys can help.
Maintaining full visibility and security control of your public cloud workloads is challenging. VMs are spun on and off quickly and frequently. Qualys identifies and classifies these instances, captures their component details, gives you 2-second visibility into them and monitors their vulnerabilities.
With thousands of vulnerabilities disclosed annually, you can’t patch all present in your data center. You must pinpoint critical ones requiring immediate attention. Qualys automates this intensive data analysis process. By continuously correlating real-time threat information against your vulnerabilities and IT asset inventory, Qualys gives you a full view of your threat landscape.
You must ensure your public cloud workloads are compliant with internal IT policies and regulations. Qualys automates assessment of security and compliance controls in order to demonstrate a repeatable and trackable process to auditors and stakeholders. Specifically, Qualys performs security configuration assessments on cloud instances.
Qualys’ native integration and comprehensive security and compliance solutions for AWS allow you to fulfill your part in the “shared responsibility” model under which AWS and other public cloud platform providers operate. With Qualys, you get unparalleled visibility across your AWS accounts, and insight into the security and compliance posture of your workloads and infrastructure resources. Qualys’ cloud-native security solutions provide vulnerability assessments, remediation prioritization, certificate assessments, and continuous regulatory compliance for your AWS EC2 instances and applications. The new Qualys clouds apps Cloud Inventory (CI) and Cloud Security Assessment (CSA) secure AWS infrastructure resources like VPC, IAM Users, Security Groups, and S3 storage buckets against misconfigurations and non-standard deployments.
Qualys gives you a full view of your Azure instances’ security and compliance. The Qualys VSA for Azure, available in Azure Marketplace, scans Azure VMs and provides the same capabilities as our regular scanner appliance. Cloud Agents with Azure Security Center detect Azure VMs, gather vulnerability data and sends it to Qualys.
Qualys gives you a full view of your GCP instances’ security and compliance. The VSA for GCP, available in GCP Launcher, scans GCP VMs and provides the same capabilities as our regular scanner appliance. Cloud Agents can be deployed on GCE VMs directly or embedded into Images, for real-time vulnerability management and policy compliance.
