Qualys, Inc., a pioneer and leading provider of information security and compliance cloud products, delivers solutions to a majority of the Forbes Global 100. Qualys is also a founding member of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA).
Founded in 1999, Qualys appeared at a time when Internet security was not a major concern for companies large or small. In December 2000, the company became one of the first firms to enter the vulnerability management market. The firm pioneered the use of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to address security and compliance problems for organizations of all sizes.
At the heart of Qualys is its Qualys Cloud Platform, which provides an integrated suite of solutions to automate the lifecycle of asset discovery, security assessment and compliance management for an organization’s IT infrastructure and assets, whether they reside inside the organization, on their network perimeter or in the cloud.
QualysGuard’s cloud delivery model can be easily and rapidly deployed on a global scale, enabling faster implementation, broader adoption and lower total cost of ownership than traditional on-premise enterprise software products. By deploying QualysGuard, organizations can gain actionable security intelligence into potential vulnerabilities and malware in their IT infrastructure and expedite compliance with internal polices and external regulations.
