Qualys unveils its Free Community edition

Qualys unveiled its Community Edition, a free cloud-based service giving small organizations unified visibility of their own or their clients’ IT and web assets, and the ability to easily assess security and compliance postures using the accuracy and reliability of the Qualys Cloud Platform.

Qualys Community Edition allows users to leverage the power of the Qualys Cloud Platform which performs billions of scans annually with Six Sigma accuracy to automatically gather and analyze security and compliance data from hybrid IT environments. This accurate and immediate visibility helps organizations around the globe maintain a higher level of security and provide auditors with trusted compliance reports, while consolidating their stack and drastically reducing costs.

“The increased attack surface in this digital era makes security and compliance a key element of any thriving business,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc. “Harnessing the power of the Qualys Cloud Platform, we built the Qualys Community Edition to give organizations including SMBs, consultants and MSPs an easy and comprehensive solution to identity their IT assets and continuously assess their security posture, helping build a solid and secure IT environment without the hassle and costs of deploying point solutions.”

Additionally, Qualys Community Edition delivers both Qualys CloudView and CertView capabilities integrated with the service, providing the ability to identify all public cloud assets and resources, and to manage and grade all internet-facing digital certificates.

Qualys Community Edition will be available at the end of July. It includes unlimited scanning of up to 16 internal IP assets, three external IP assets and one web application URL. Users receive one virtual appliance for scanning non-public facing assets.
