Today at Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit, Qualys announced the availability of customizable questionnaires in its QualysGuard Cloud Platform and suite of integrated solutions for security and compliance. Businesses can use the new Questionnaire solution to centralize and automate the vendor risk assessment process, helping them ensure that service providers and IT suppliers do not disrupt or hurt business performance.
“We participated in the QualysGuard Questionnaire beta and used it to assess the risk of various vendors and partners we work with,” said Randy Barr, VP chief security and information officer for Saba. “We found the solution easy to use and customizable to our vendor risk assessment needs, and having it delivered via the cloud allowed us to easily assess third-parties – giving vendor contacts access to complete online vendor assessments and reminders for pending and past-due assessments.”
“We were a part of the QualysGuard Questionnaire Service beta and look forward to offering it to our customers,” said Tim McElwee, chairman and COO, Proficio Inc. "The cloud service will help our clients streamline vendor risk and other assessments by easily setting up and tracking completion of questionnaires."
