Qualys has been one of the leading providers of information security and compliance cloud solutions in the field since it was founded in 1999. Qualys offers a fresh perspective on cloud computing solutions and has been engaged in crafting simplified SaaS security operations. It has also established strategic partnerships with reputed companies like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and the Google Cloud Platform.
A key characteristic of Qualys that has elevated it into a trusted provider for 19,000 companies in over 130 countries is its delivery of flawless cloud computing solutions on demand. Critical security intelligence, automation of the full spectrum of auditing, compliance, and protection for IT systems and web applications are a few areas where Qualys specializes in.
With over 20 years of experience in SaaS and cloud computing, Sumedh Thakar, the President, and CEO of Qualys has taken this incredible company to new heights. “I have been fortunate to be part of Qualys’ journey of innovation from the early days when Qualys started as one of the first cloud-based security solutions. We’ve made great strides since then, expanding our cloud platform to address the security and compliance needs of today’s modern IT infrastructure,” says Sumedh Thakar.
More than marketing their skills, the Qualys team lets the numbers speak for them. Nearly 66% of the Forbes Global 50 rely on the solutions offered by Qualys, be it for retail, technology, telecom, or healthcare sectors. The company was also awarded the Global Vulnerability Management Market Leadership Award in 2017 for its best practices, unique growth strategy, and product quality.
Qualys has a growing suite of innovative and integrated apps that are transforming the way that the industry views cloud computing and security solutions. “I look forward to continuing to accelerate innovation, advancing our go-to-market strategy, and creating value for our customers and shareholders,” says Sumedh Thakar.
When it comes to cloud security, identifying threats caused by misconfigurations, unwarranted access, and non-standard deployments on the public cloud is critical. Qualys Cloud Security Assessment automates the security monitoring while ensuring compliance with industry standards, regulatory mandates, and best practices to prevent issues like leaky storage buckets, unrestricted security groups, and crypto-mining attacks.
Of all the groundbreaking services on the Qualys Cloud Platform, CertView and CloudView are perhaps the most commendable. Giving organizations, regardless of their size, visibility to track and monitor all their digital certificates and cloud assets, these services enable securing critical data while being taken to the cloud. This means that companies get an “at-a-glance” comprehensive picture of their cloud inventory via personalized dashboards.
As organizations compete to keep up with the digital transformation around them, they also struggle to achieve complete PCI compliance. In a world where data is the most important commodity, Qualys has an IT security solution that enables the management of end-to-end PCI compliance and data security within an organization.
For companies with security and compliance gaps, the Qualys PCI Compliance Unified View dashboard grants a holistic view of assets and PCI compliance posture along with all the tools essential to meet PCI DSS requirements.
This compliance solution is currently one of the best in the market with features like automated vulnerability scans, management, and remediation. By prioritizing the vulnerabilities based on real-time threat indicators, Qualys gives organizations assurance that their network is secure 24/7.
More than just innovative solutions in the areas of IT security and compliance monitoring, Qualys has a renowned team that engages in cutting-edge research. Recently, the team was accredited with two Pwnie Awards at Black Hat USA 2021 for their vital role in outlining the vulnerabilities in popular applications before these are exploited by malicious actors.
It is quite evident through a quick glance that Qualys is an industry leader, that will likely continue to project excellence within the compliance cloud solutions space.
