Qualys unveils mid-market Private Cloud Platform Appliance
Qualys PCPA enables organisations to retain data on-premise or within local geographies
Cloud-based security and compliance provider, Qualys, has introduced its Private Cloud Platform Appliance (PCPA), a managed on-premise security and compliance solution for medium-sized companies.
This latest member of the Qualys Private Cloud Platform (PCP) family offers the same robust private cloud security and compliance services with scanning capacity in a new high-performance, purpose-built 1U appliance.
Often organisations are required to maintain customer data within specific geographic locations. Qualys PCPA is designed to help mid-sized organisations keep security and compliance information locally, within their data centres or a partner's, without sacrificing the value of managed cloud services. Despite being a smaller version of the Qaulys PCP family of products, it still has the same security, performance and compliance capabilities.
Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys said: "The new PCPA allows us to extend our security and compliance solutions to more effectively compete in environments where our current private cloud offering is too expensive for mid-sized companies."
Qualys PCPA offers the full benefits of the Qualys Cloud Platform suite as a managed, monitored service, securely maintained by Qualys within an organisation's data centre. It supports both scanners and cloud agents, and includes a comprehensive, integrated suite of Qualys apps for automating asset discovery, security assessments and compliance management, including: AssetView, Vulnerability Management, Continuous Monitoring, ThreatPROTECT, Web Application Scanning, Web Application Firewall, Policy Compliance and Security Assessment Questionnaire.
Qualys PCPA will be available starting in July 2016.
