Qualys and FireMon Enable Real-Time Network Risk Visibility and Remediation
April 2013 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
Qualys, Inc., and FireMon announced the integration of QualysGuard Vulnerability Management (VM) and FireMon Security Manager with Risk Analyzer in FireMon’s upcoming Version 7.0 release.
With the integration, QualysGuard VM provides information feeds for the full lifecycle of network auditing and vulnerability management, including network discovery and mapping, asset prioritisation, vulnerability reporting correlated with known malwares and exploits, and remediation tracking according to business risk. Leveraging the QualysGuard Cloud Platform, it offers the most comprehensive vulnerability KnowledgeBase in the industry and six sigma accuracy, and the scalability to scan across even the largest, most complex environments, for public or private cloud, and including network perimeters, DMZs and LANs.
FireMon Security Manager with Risk Analyzer is automatically updated with the latest QualysGuard VM scan results, and combined with Security Manager’s real-time network configuration and topology knowledge, provides customers with the most comprehensive and real-time solution to identifying exactly what assets on their network are at truly at risk and which they should remediate first to reduce the greatest amount of risk.
