Qualys unlocks next level of vulnerability management

Qualys vulnerability management, detection & response or VMDR solution is an all-in-one vulnerability management, detection, and response solution that enables to discover, assess, prioritise and patch critical vulnerabilities in real time. Qualys VMDR provides the foundation for a comprehensive risk-based vulnerability management program that does not solely rely on CVE-based vulnerabilities and arbitrary risk scores, which can give a false sense of security.

Today's processes involve different teams, using multiple point solutions — significantly adding complexity and time to the critical patching process. Traditional endpoint solutions don't interface well with each other, creating integration headaches, false positives, and delays. Ultimately, devices are left unidentified, critical assets are misclassified, vulnerabilities are poorly prioritised, and patches don't get fully applied.

VMDR provides an all-in-one, cloud-based app that automates the entire vulnerability management cycle, significantly accelerating the ability for companies to respond to threats, and prevent breaches while drastically reducing licensing and operating cost.

According to Qualys, what sets VMDR apart from other offerings on the market is that it unifies the entire IT and security workflow into a single cloud application to identify any device that connects to the network in real-time. From there, it allows users to create and easily maintain an always up-to-date global IT asset inventory and asset groups, detect vulnerabilities in real-time, prioritise these — with a state-of-the-art prioritisation engine that also takes into account misconfigurations and digital certificate security exposures — and finally mitigate and remediate vulnerabilities across the entire global hybrid IT environment, which includes on-premises devices, endpoints, cloud, mobile, containers, web apps, and APIs.

Check out VMDR

VMDR with built-in orchestration allows to identify all known and unknown assets on your global hybrid-IT, analyse vulnerabilities and misconfigurations with six sigma accuracy, focus on what's most urgent and inoculate assets from the most critical threats. More information about VMDR is available in the Qualys ebook.

With VMDR, Qualys promises to elevate vulnerability management—providing a single app that delivers:

  • Automated asset detection and categorisation
  • Real-time vulnerability and misconfiguration detection
  • Automated remediation prioritisation
  • Patching and remediation
  • Single pane of glass management and streamlined reporting
