New Qualys App for Splunk Enterprise Delivers Real-time Dashboard and Analytics for Security and Compliance Data
Many customers that use the Qualys Cloud Platform for vulnerability management are also using Splunk Enterprise to collect their security and compliance data. Thanks to the new Qualys VM App for Splunk Enterprise with the included Qualys Technology Add-on (TA), customers can monitor and evaluate real-time threat alerts and analysis through a single dashboard. With this unified perspective, customers achieve a more complete picture as well as a streamlined workflow – across their entire infrastructure.
In recent years cybercrime has gone from an array of independent hackers to a global industrialized operation that utilizes collaboration, worldwide coordination and advanced criminal techniques to evade detection. One would expect this increased organization and sophistication would improve the speed at which “hackers hack.” And you would be correct: according to a recently released report, the time between an exploit announcement and the first attack is typically just 7.5 days, down from just under 10 days in 2008.
Your organization is likely already struggling with meeting internal and regulatory requirements for patch times. In addition, vulnerabilities and their risk to the organization are increasing each day, as hackers are now able to weaponize new vulnerabilities faster than ever.
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."
