REDWOOD CITY, CA — (Marketwired) — 11/02/16 — Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions today announced the integration of the Qualys Cloud Platform and Qualys Vulnerability Management within the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Managed Security Services (MSS) portfolio. These new MSS offerings help enterprises get continuous visibility of global IT security and compliance across data centers and public and private clouds.
Organizations moving to the cloud must manage IT security and compliance posture across increasingly diverse global asset environments. As a cloud-based solution, Qualys Cloud Platform integrates real-time visibility of those assets, vulnerabilities and key policy configurations into a single viewpoint. The HPE MSS portfolio leverages the Qualys solutions to extend this visibility and integrate it with big data, security analytics and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) platforms such as HPE Security ArcSight. This gives customers increased scalability, flexibility and ease of use, enabling them to quickly and securely add continuous visibility to new cloud workloads and instances.
“HPE is helping businesses protect themselves while integrating critical infrastructure for digital transformations,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc. “With the Qualys Cloud Platform, HPE can provide customers two-second visibility of their security and compliance posture across global IT assets whether on premise, mobile endpoints or elastic cloud environments.”
“With the increasing sophistication of attackers, organizations need scalable, real-time visibility of their entire IT security and compliance environment, whether it’s on-premise or in the cloud,” said Art Wong, senior vice president and general manager, HPE Security Services, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “The new HPE MSS offerings leveraging the Qualys Vulnerability Management and Cloud Platform provide customers with a multitenant architecture that delivers greater security visibility to help detect and respond to threats.”
Continuous Visibility with Qualys Cloud Platform and Cloud Agent
HPE will leverage the Qualys Cloud Agent to enable customers with real-time visibility integrated into the fabric of their hybrid cloud and on-premises environments. The lightweight 2 MB Qualys Cloud Agent installs on assets in any major public cloud platform, on-premises or remote location, then deliver real-time IT security and compliance data to Qualys Cloud Platform from anywhere online. The Qualys Cloud Platform is available as a shared cloud service or a private cloud.
