Qualys and BeyondTrust, the leading provider of privilege delegation and authorization management, today announced a technology partnership to integrate QualysGuard with BeyondTrust’s PowerBroker for Unix Servers. This will enable customers to manage user access and privileges while expanding the coverage of security scans for a more complete, accurate view of IT security and compliance.
"Qualys has more than 5,000 customers and is nearly an industry standard for vulnerability management and policy compliance solutions," said John Mutch, CEO of BeyondTrust. "Our development teams have worked closely together to meet the needs of our joint customers who requested an enterprise class privilege authorization solution as they use QualysGuard for vulnerability management and IT compliance."
The new integration is scheduled to be available with the release of QualysGuard 6.16 on Thursday January 6, 2011. This feature is included in both QualysGuard Vulnerability Management (VM) and Policy Compliance (PC) solutions.
