Risk I/O announced today that it has partnered with Qualys to integrate QualysGuard Vulnerability Management (VM) into Risk I/O, providing perimeter vulnerability scanning for its customers. For businesses that need to understand the vulnerability and threat risks of their organization’s perimeter in real-time, the new integration enables them to sync their vulnerability data with Risk I/O’s threat processing engine, allowing organizations to gain visibility into their most likely vector for a breach.
It’s good to share.
Qualys is a firm believer in the tremendous benefits of sharing information to improve information security. Over the past year, we’ve demonstrated our commitment to industry collaboration with many projects, including the creation of the Ironbee Open Source project, our support of Convergence, and our work with StopBadware. I’m happy to announce today that Risk I/O has joined the community of our partners in sharing.
Risk I/O provides a centralized portal for vulnerability information, reporting, and remediation management. By utilizing the QualysGuard API, Risk I/O makes it easy to get an accurate and up-to-the-minute assessment of your vulnerabilites and share that information using concise charts and reports, improving efficiency and performance of vulnerability management programs. Tickets can be assigned to drive remediation work, and QualysGuard verification scans can be automatically launched to close the loop on remediation activities. Risk I/O can even aggregate QualysGuard results with other standards-based tools in your environment to multiply the value of your data. Since both QualysGuard and Risk I/O are cloud-based solutions, getting started is as easy as signing up for a free trial account. You can read more about the Qualys and Risk I/O partnership on the Risk I/O blog.
We’re excited to work with Risk I/O to help you perform better vulnerability management. Please share your experiences with us; we would love to hear your feedback so we can continue to improve our products and integrations!
