Qualys, Inc., a Foster City-based provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, has rolled out “Qualys Consulting Edition,” which delivers the ability to perform multiple ongoing vulnerability assessment engagements from a single, centralized and self-updating platform. It allows partner organizations to track results in one place and allows MSPs to add security services to their existing portfolio, enabling multi-tenancy with Six-Sigma accuracy, historic trending, and API support.
“Consultants, consulting organizations and managed service providers have been asking us to provide our unique cloud platform and integrated suite of applications in a way that helps them scale their services cost-effectively and provide their customers with a more comprehensive solution, allowing them from a single platform to perform security assessments across on-premises environments, endpoints, and clouds,” said Qualys Chairman and CEO Philippe Courtot. “This is what Qualys Consulting Edition does, and we are proud to bring such a groundbreaking offering to the market, as it brings consultants a modern cloud platform so they can better support clients across their new hybrid infrastructure and cloud applications.”
The offering also addresses issues created by scanning overlapping IPs, and provides out-of-the-box dynamic and fully customizable reporting and trending reports and dashboards. It also includes Qualys Cloud Agent support for real-time vulnerability management. Partners can also offer CertView and CloudView, which enables them to track and monitor all their internet-facing digital certificates and multi-cloud assets at no additional cost.
Qualys Consulting Edition will be available for consultants, consulting organizations and MSPs by the end of the month. Annual subscription pricing begins at $3,995 for unlimited asset packages.
The new offering is likely to encourage channel partners to sample the vendor’s technologies and compare them to the offerings of key competitors.
