Qualys, Inc., provider of disruptive cloud-based IT, security and compliance solutions, has announced a strategic partnership with deepwatch, the provider of managed security services and vulnerability management solutions.
Qualys will help enable deepwatch Managed Vulnerability Services by integrating VMDR (Vulnerability Management, Detection and Response), Policy Compliance, and Web Application Scanning (WAS) into the service.
deepwatch customers now have access to key Qualys apps as part of a holistic solution to meet their visibility and vulnerability management requirements across their global hybrid IT environment. Vulnerability data from VMDR will correlate with deepwatch’s Cloud SecOps platform to provide additional intelligence to further prioritise vulnerabilities and risk.
Qualys’ lightweight Cloud Agents are embedded and fully integrated with the deepwatch Managed Vulnerability Service. This allows deepwatch and its customers to standardise on one agent to deliver asset discovery and inventory, vulnerability assessment including configuration controls, threat prioritisation and patch identification. It also gives customers one-click access to additional Qualys solutions such as File Integrity Monitoring, Patch Management and Multi-Vector EDR.
“deepwatch is proud to partner with Qualys to provide superior Cloud-based vulnerability management services to our customers,” said Charlie Thomas, CEO at deepwatch. “Harnessing the power of the Qualys vulnerability management solution integrated with the deepwatch Cloud SecOps platform and our 24/7 security experts, our customers are able to build out a vulnerability management program that truly elevates overall security.”
“It’s a testament to the strength of our Cloud Platform and VMDR solution that deepwatch, an innovative leader in managed security, has selected Qualys to power its managed vulnerability service,” said Sumedh Thakar, president and CEO at Qualys. “The Qualys Cloud Agent enables the deepwatch Cloud SecOps Platform to consolidate and standardise on one lightweight agent to deliver context-driven telemetry and allow customers to reduce overhead and easily deploy additional Qualys security solutions as needed.
