Reveal How Hackers View Your Clients’ Internet Perimeters

See your clients’ perimeters the same way hackers do: from the Internet. Qualys’ cloud-based scanning gives you the most accurate picture of your clients’ Internet-facing servers, websites and web apps. Qualys is pre-authorized for scanning within Amazon EC2, so you can easily track all of your clients’ systems in one place. Know quickly whether any of their assets are out-of-date, misconfigured or vulnerable to emerging threats – before they get attacked.

Scan Clients’ Networks Remotely from Your Web Browser

Qualys frees you from having to set up and maintain software on your clients’ networks. Simply open a browser on any device, log into Qualys and you’re immediately ready to start scanning, review results, and generate reports – from anywhere, at any time.

Scan Devices & Web Apps Inside Your Clients’ Internal Networks

With Qualys, you can accurately and efficiently scan your clients’ corporate servers, computers and web apps – even inside complex, distributed networks. Automated authentication lets Qualys securely log into each system to collect critical security and compliance information. Internal scanning is seamlessly performed by virtual scanner appliances (available in a variety of virtual machine formats) that are remotely managed by Qualys.

You can use a virtual scanner from your laptop when you’re on-site or deploy it on a client’s computer to scan without you having to be present. It securely monitors assets within clients’ networks without requiring inbound firewall ports to be opened or special VPN connections to be set up. Furthermore, with Qualys, internal and external systems are all managed from the same console, eliminating the need for multiple tools.

Discover Rogue or Forgotten Devices

The cornerstone of reliable security starts with knowing what your clients really have in their networks. Qualys Vulnerability Management helps you find unauthorized or undocumented devices lurking in your clients’ perimeter or corporate networks.

Identify the Latest Security Patches and Where to Get Them

Qualys goes beyond just listing which devices are at risk of being attacked – it also tells you which specific patches are needed to fix each problem and gives you a link for downloading them.

Examine Security Trends Across Systems and Time

Understand the overall security of your clients’ networks as well as specific details of any particular device or web application. Qualys lets you analyze results from multiple assets and how they trend over time to give you a complete view of your clients’ security postures.

Uncover Undocumented or Forgotten Apps

Qualys Web Application Scanning helps you find web applications that have been published in your clients’ networks without authorization or have simply been forgotten. With this information, you can assist clients in preventing orphaned apps from becoming potentially-severe security risks.

Audit Computer Configurations’ Adherence to Compliance Policies

With Qualys Policy Compliance, you can go beyond network testing to deeply inspect a wide range of settings and security controls required for mandates such as FISMA, HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, Basel II and others. You can use industry benchmarks such as the USGCB required by many US federal agencies or define your own controls to test for. Qualys is a CIS Security Benchmarks Consulting/Auditing Member.

Verify Usage of Password Controls

Track whether computers throughout your clients’ networks are properly implementing password controls required for complying with internal security rules as well as industry or regulatory mandates.

Accelerate and Automate PCI Compliance

With Qualys PCI Compliance, you can check whether your clients’ systems are PCI compliant at any time, enabling them to address issues early and submit quarterly PCI audit results once you know they’ve passed. Qualys is a PCI Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV).

Co-brand Reports that You Give to Your Clients

With Qualys Consultant, you can add your brand to reusable report templates and automate the creation of engagement reports. Customized layouts, free-form content and complete control over included results let you tailor reports to each client’s needs.

Visualize and Explain Clients’ Security Posture with Flexible Reports

Qualys goes beyond simply itemizing the vulnerabilities it finds. It gathers data from each device and web app, then lets you organize that information in the most appropriate way. You can quickly show how groups of assets fare against security goals in executive scorecards and generate detailed reports identifying how vulnerabilities change over time.

Add Your Own Executive Summary to Reports

Qualys lets you enter your own executive summary and recommendations into reports you generate for clients. Your insights become part of the report rather than a separate document that could get separated or misplaced.
