Dubai / Emirates Business
Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, today announced the Qualys ThreatPROTECT solution.
Built on the Qualys Cloud Platform, ThreatPROTECT correlates data from vulnerability scans and active threat data from multiple sources into a single dynamic dashboard to provide a holistic and contextual view of an organization’s threat exposure. With ThreatPROTECT, customers can visualize, prioritize and take action to minimize exposure from vulnerabilities related to the threats that matter most.
Dealing with huge numbers of vulnerabilities remains an issue for most organizations, as fixing every issue can take a considerable amount of time. Chasing the deployment of fixes to every vulnerability results in more critical issues being left unaddressed for longer periods.
Organizations must prioritize remediation efforts to have an immediate and measurable impact on risk reduction. This requires not only accurately identifying vulnerabilities, but also understanding a variety of point-in-time factors that contribute significantly to the overall risk exposure. For example, certain vulnerabilities with publicly available exploits that are actively being leveraged by attackers present greater threat exposure compared to less well-known and automated vulnerabilities. Providing actionable security intelligence with organizational context leads to better countermeasures against the threats that matter most, protecting IT assets against compromises and protecting the organizational brand.
