NIS2 Directive Compliance Solutions

One Platform. One Agent.

NIS2 Directive

The European Union’s revised Network and Information Security (NIS2) Directive is a comprehensive cybersecurity regulation aimed at bolstering the resilience of critical entities and essential services across the EU. As organizations grapple with the complexities of compliance, Qualys offers a suite of powerful cybersecurity solutions that can help streamline the process and ensure adherence to NIS2 requirements.

Industries Affected

The NIS2 Directive expands upon its predecessor, NIS1, by widening the scope to 15 covered entities and introducing more stringent cybersecurity obligations. The directive applies to essential and important entities, including those in sectors such as energy, transport, banking, healthcare, and digital infrastructure.

NIS2 Risks

Failure to comply could lead to penalties of up to €10,000,000 or 2% of a firm’s total annual worldwide turnover (revenue). Also, potential cybersecurity breaches, brand damage, and litigation that could cost tens of millions.

NIS2 Risk Reduction

The Qualys Enterprise TruRisk Platform offers a suite of cloud-based cybersecurity solutions that can help organizations comply with the NIS2 requirements and avoid serious consequences.
