SOC Prime Announces Technology Alliance With Qualys

SOC Prime Solutions Integrate Qualys Cloud Platform With Popular SIEM Solutions, Improving Efficiency Through Automation and Greater Visibility Through Real-Time Intelligence

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 16, 2015) - Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, today announced a technology alliance with SOC Prime, an innovator in solutions for predictive maintenance and automated integration. The alliance enables SOC Prime to offer several solutions that utilize the capabilities of Qualys Cloud Platform and Qualys SSL Labs to increase the efficiency of existing security infrastructure through automated workflows, reducing the amount of time and effort spent on routine tasks, and improving visibility by combining greater intelligence with real-time correlation capabilities.

SOC Prime Integration Framework for Qualys (IF4Q) combines the functionality of the Qualys Cloud Platform and popular SIEM systems, allowing enterprises to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of critical security components, save time and decrease rollout costs associated with technology adoption. IF4Q generates additional value from its integration with Qualys by providing advanced functionality, including continuous monitoring of prevalent attack vectors, asset changes, web applications security and web server inventory. IF4Q considerably speeds up operational performance by automating routine tasks, and providing interface unification and live dashboards with diagnostics and vulnerability information on IT assets. IF4Q integrates with market-leading SIEM products including IBM QRadar and Splunk, and has been thoroughly tested and HP CEF certified for use in conjunction with HP ArcSight.

SOC Prime SSL Framework enriches Qualys SSL Labs, the world's leading solution for SSL certificate management, by automating the entire process and integrating results with SIEM solutions. It is widely adopted worldwide, making encryption protection procedures more actionable. An integrated analytical SIEM package enables interactive dashboards with information on expiration dates, overall ratings and vulnerabilities, along with real-time alerts on security status changes. SSL Framework is provided as a free open source solution that can be integrated in minutes with HP ArcSight, IBM QRadar and Splunk.

"By combining the intelligence of the Qualys platform with ArcSight's real-time correlation capabilities, we're now able to continuously monitor and automatically detect any changes that require attention at and beyond our company's premises," said Maksym Iashchenko, head of the Information Technologies Infrastructure Security Unit ISS of JSC "UkrSibbank", BNP Paribas group. "Powered by this live intelligence, we now receive valuable and prioritized information for our security team in real time. Before IF4Q, it would have taken months of dedicated developer resources, Qualys experts and ArcSight seasoned professionals to get the same results."

"We're proud that IF4Q has demonstrated unique value for our customers," said Andrii Bezverkhyi, CEO of SOC Prime. "We continue to work hard creating advanced threat detection solutions to power even more sophisticated use cases by exploring the intelligence data on web applications and compliance using the API for Qualys WAS and Policy Compliance modules."

"By connecting the Qualys Cloud Platform to various SIEMs, SOC Prime is driving the much-needed automation of security operations," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys. "We consider SOC Prime a valued technology partner with deep expertise, and look forward to a long relationship."
