REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 11, 2016) - Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, and NTT Security (US) Inc, a specialized security company of NTT Group (NYSE: NTT), today announced a strategic partnership in the US to integrate Qualys' cloud-based IT security and compliance services with NTT Security's Managed Security Services (MSS) and strategic consulting engagements. The agreement enables NTT Security customers to leverage the Qualys Cloud Platform's scale for continuous IT security and compliance visibility across all aspects of IT infrastructure including mobile, cloud or on-premises environments.
Effectively mitigating thousands of vulnerabilities across an equal number of systems and applications increasingly requires up-to-date asset information, strong correlation and analytics capabilities paired with global scale. By integrating Qualys' cloud-based architecture within its MSS portfolio, NTT Security allows customers to automate this scanning and correlation at the breadth and scale of today's cloud business to quickly produce timely and actionable reports that help strategically protect them from today's priority threats.
"Digital transformation makes it necessary for enterprises to increase their security expectations," said John Petrie, Chief Information Security Officer, NTT Security. "Qualys' cloud-based platform allows NTT Security to offer clients fast, efficient, and accurate vulnerability management and policy compliance services that are easy to deploy and scale."
"NTT Security has built a first-class managed security services offering that reduces the burden of IT security and compliance for its customers," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc. "By integrating the Qualys Cloud Platform with NTT Security's managed security offering, customers can now have the full and continuous view of their security and compliance posture on a global scale."
Simplifying Global Security and Compliance
The Qualys Cloud Platform gives NTT MSS customers continuously reliable and accurate visibility of IT security and compliance posture by integrating real-world threat data and analytics with Qualys' single-pane view of heterogeneous asset environments. Customers can further reduce complexity with Qualys Cloud Agents, a single endpoint installation that can continuously detect vulnerabilities and compliance state across systems and apps, then alert infosec teams to priority incidents or assets. Also, by leveraging one vendor solution for asset inventory, vulnerability management, policy compliance and web app security, Qualys helps these organizations more affordably protect all IT assets, endpoints and web apps globally.
