Today in London, to kick off the week of Infosecurity Europe, Qualys 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. The integration enables customers to analyze their security postures across large network security infrastructures, evaluate remediation efforts through attack simulation, and see the impact of their actions to reduce risk and meet compliance regulations.
With the integration, 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, identifies exactly what assets on the network are at truly at risk and which should be remediated first to reduce the greatest amount of risk.
Jody Brazil, President and CTO of FireMon commented: “The integrated FireMon Security Manager with Risk Analyzer and QualysGuard Vulnerability Management solution empowers IT Security organizations to automate the identification of assets that are truly at risk, and to know their network risk posture is always updated in real-time. This enables customers to move to a risk-centric security operations model that enables them to proactively identify and patch or make unreachable important assets that could be exploited before attackers do."
