Qualys serves as a compliance solution that allows enterprises to maintain the regulations specific to their industries with ease. This feature alerts a business about the required compliance and if an IT ecosystem continuously adheres to them. With Qualys, responding to auditor requests becomes an automated and timely process because of its continuous compliance checks. It also ensures that audit reports are accurate and meet specified standards.
Features of this next-gen vulnerability management, detection, and response solution include:
Scanning through complex IT ecosystems in search of loopholes cyber-attacks exploit is one of the major features of Qualys. Qualys employs an agent-based detection process that extends its coverage to assets that can’t be scanned. These self-updating agents reside within assets and ensure vulnerabilities are found faster, and their adverse impacts to networks are reduced.
Qualys makes scanning, analytics, and reporting vulnerabilities and security challenges possible. With Qualys, custom reports that show in-depth details into vulnerabilities can be created. These details include forgotten devices still integrated into networks and unexpected access points. These details are included in dashboard reports and automated remediation tickets, which make prioritizing remediation tasks a simpler process.
Ensuring compliance frameworks remain integrated and updated within IT infrastructure reduces the effect of data breaches and corresponding lawsuits. Qualys provides a comprehensive view of an enterprise compliance posture through a one-browser window. Compliance reports are updated in real-time, which provides a process for maintaining frameworks.
Qualys provides risk identification features that assist enterprises with identifying the highest risks to their IT operations. This feature makes use of trend-analysis, Zero-day, and patch impact predictions to track vulnerabilities as they appear. The risk identification process is iterative and keeps tracking vulnerabilities as they are fixed and notifying the system if they reappear.
