Qualys has enabled us to integrate into build, test, operational and automation efforts, whether on premises or in the cloud.Abie John CISO at Avaya
Your company has torn down the wall between development and IT operations. Building, testing, and launching software is now iterative and collaborative. Qualys has security solutions for this new era.
Most breaches exploit known bugs. Removing these weak points from your code during development yields clean production software and thwarts hackers. Using its Cloud Agents, Qualys flags vulnerabilities and lets your DevSecOps team “shift left” and quickly patch or mitigate these flaws throughout the application development and deployment lifecycle. With Qualys, you can also address security-related configuration issues, a major source of recent breaches. Qualys automates configuration assessment of DevSecOps environments through out-of-the-box certified policies from the Center for Internet Security (CIS), and simplified workflows for scanning and reporting.
DevSecOps is an agile, iterative, and collaborative process for generating pliable, flexible apps in response to market challenges and customer demands. Security can’t be a bottleneck. Qualys removes appsec obstacles, including the heaviest: pinpointing the most critical vulnerabilities among thousands so you prioritize your time and remediation efforts effectively and efficiently.
DevSecOps seeks to produce modern software that’s secure and innovative, but you can’t overlook compliance. You must ensure your code is compliant with internal IT policies, industry mandates, and government regulations. Using its Cloud Agents, Qualys automates assessment of compliance controls so you can demonstrate a repeatable and trackable process to auditors and stakeholders.
Living outside of the network perimeter, insecure web apps offer an attractive attack surface to break into your IT environment. Qualys helps you avoid poor development and testing practices by scanning web apps for vulnerabilities and mis-configurations. Qualys also shields your web servers with its firewall, and rids your websites from malware.
Once software is deployed, you must monitor files to enforce change controls, fulfill compliance requirements, and detect compromises. Leveraging its Cloud Agents, Qualys’ file integrity validation solution monitors OSes in real time, and is easy to install, configure and manage. With a real-time detection engine, it centrally logs and manages events, and correlates and tracks change incidents.
Ops must also flag indicators of compromise pointing to malware attacks your antivirus products may miss. Using its Cloud Agents, Qualys gathers IoC data from your assets and stores, processes, indexes and analyzes it. Qualys’ IoC capabilities help you hunt threats, verify network alerts, detect suspicious activity, and flag malware.
