Qualys introduces new offering for consultants and MSPs

Qualys today announced its new offering, Qualys Consulting Edition targeting consultants, security consulting organizations and managed service providers (MSPs) that brings them the power and scale of the Qualys Cloud Platform in an easy to deploy, easy to use and cost-effective solution. It also delivers the ability to perform multiple ongoing vulnerability assessment engagements from a single, centralized and self-updating platform. This allows them to consolidate their security stack for on-premises environments, endpoints and clouds, drastically reducing total cost of ownership (TCO).

“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 Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc. “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 new Qualys Consulting Edition provides consultants with the ability to cost effectively manage multiple engagements. It allows consulting organizations to track results from their engagements in one place, and allows MSPs to add security services to their existing portfolio, enabling multi-tenancy with Six-Sigma accuracy, historic trending, and included API support.

The new solution also addresses the issues created by scanning overlapping IPs, and provides out-of-the-box dynamic and fully customizable reporting and trending reports and dashboards. These features simplify the task of scanning a range of client assets by maintaining a high level of organization, which streamlines reporting functions, saving time without having to extract the information to create reports and drastically reducing the time required to perform security and compliance engagements. In addition, Qualys Cloud Agent support for real-time vulnerability management and also allow security professionals to deliver customers the suite of Qualys’ services such as CertView and CloudView free, 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 generally available for consultants, consulting organizations and MSPs by the end of August.
