In collaboration with the SANS Institute and the Council on CyberSecurity, Qualys today announced a new free service to help organizations implement the Top 4 Critical Security Controls to fend off attacks. The new service, available at https://qualys.com/top4, helps organizations quickly determine if the PCs in their environments have properly implemented the Top 4 Critical Security Controls, which the Council on CyberSecurity estimates can help companies prevent 85% of cyber-attacks.
Qualys will unveil this free service with representatives from the SANS Institute and the Council on Cyber Security at the RSA Conference Booth #2821 today at 11:30 am PT.
"The Qualys Top 4 service is an extremely elegant and effective solution that helps both small and large businesses determine how resilient they are to today’s advanced threats,” said Jonathan Trull, CISO for the State of Colorado. “This is exactly the type of public-private partnership our country needs to address the cyber attacks threatening our economy and critical infrastructure."
“This is the first time that a major security vendor has implemented a scoring and reporting algorithm that allows organizations to compare themselves with peers,” said Alan Paller, director of research for the SANS Institute. “Scoring like this is the only technique I have ever seen that causes organizations to implement the changes that lead to effective security.”
