IBM X-Force Red to utilise Qualys Cloud Platform
IBM security testing arm will use Qualys cloud solutions for vulnerability management
IBM X-Force Red security testing program will leverage the Qualys Cloud Platform as part of its X-Force Red Vulnerability Management Services (VMS).
As part of an expanded relationship, X-Force Red will deploy the Qualys Cloud Agent and Qualys Cloud Apps into client environments across the globe, providing a programmatic vulnerability management approach that leverages the breadth of Qualys' continuous visibility and depth of the X-Force Red team's services to identify, prioritize and remediate clients' most critical vulnerabilities.
The Qualys Cloud Platform will also be leveraged by X-Force Red VMS to help extend security and compliance visibility into IoT-connected cars, network testing and application testing. X-Force Red will offer the Qualys Cloud Platform to its network of Global 2000 strategic outsourcing customers.
"This partnership provides organizations a cost-effective, automated vulnerability identification, prioritization, and remediation program, said Charles Henderson, Global Head of X-Force Red. "And, since we offer X-Force Red VMS in conjunction with our X-Force Red penetration testing services, organizations get the full scope of top level offensive security - from automated scanning to manual testing - to find every not-yet-known vulnerability."
"IBM X-Force Red helps the largest enterprises in the world securely create and implement DevSecOps practices to accelerate digital transformations," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc. "This expanded relationship equips IBM X-Force Red with an unprecedented level of global visibility that allows them to proactively protect organizations against cyber-attacks."
