About Qualys’s Cloud Platform

Qualys Cloud Platform gives you a continuous, always-on assessment of your global security and compliance posture, with 2-second visibility across all your IT assets, wherever they reside. It’s the complete, end-to-end IT security solution. Vulnerability and configuration scanning help you discover hidden systems and identify vulnerabilities before attackers do. The accuracy of these scans determines how well the results can be used by your IT teams to find and fix your highest-priority security and compliance issues. The Qualys Cloud Platform has performed more than 3 billion scans in the past year.

Its vulnerability and configuration scans, the most difficult type of scans, consistently exceed Six Sigma 99.99966% accuracy, the industry standard for high quality. This level of accuracy creates a foundation for strong security and reliable compliance that enables you to efficiently zero in on potential risks before you get attacked. The “Six Sigma technique” is well-suited to improving the quality of vulnerability and configuration scanning necessary for giving organizations continuous, real-time visibility of all of their IT assets. This sophisticated, multi-step process requires commitment across the entire organization to achieve the desired results. Comparing quality levels over time against the volume of scans conducted shows whether a security and compliance solution can be relied upon, especially as the number of IT assets multiply – whether on premises, at endpoints and in clouds.

On premises, at endpoints, on mobile, in containers or in the cloud, Qualys Cloud Platform sensors are always on, giving you continuous 2-second visibility of all your IT assets. Remotely deployable, centrally managed and self-updating, the sensors come as physical or virtual appliances, or lightweight agents. They provide an end-to-end solution, allowing you to avoid the cost and complexities that come with managing multiple security vendors. The Qualys Cloud Platform automatically gathers and analyzes security and compliance data in a scalable, state-of-the-art backend. Provisioning any of Qualys’ natively integrated security and compliance apps - eighteen and counting - is as easy as checking a box. Qualys also offers native integrations with third-party cloud platforms (AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, etc.) for full visibility.

Qualys Cloud Platform is accessible directly in the browser, no plugins necessary. And with AssetView, security and compliance pros and managers get a complete and continuously updated view of all of their IT assets — from a single-pane-of-glass interface.

It’s a fully customizable dashboard that lets you see the big picture, drill down into details, and generate reports for teammates and auditors. Its intuitive and easy-to-build dynamic dashboards aggregate and correlate all of your IT security and compliance data in one place from all the various Qualys Cloud Apps. With its powerful elastic search clusters, you can now search for any asset – including on-premises, endpoint and cloud assets – with 2-second visibility.

The bottom line is: Qualys goes beyond simply identifying vulnerabilities. With their high accuracy, your teams in charge of securing on-premises infrastructure, cloud infrastructure, endpoints, DevSecOps, compliance and web apps can each efficiently focus on reducing risk and not just detecting it. There is no security without accuracy.
