Lieberman Software and Qualys Announce Integration

liebermanLieberman Software and Qualys today announced the integration between Enterprise Random Password Manager (ERPM) privileged identity management and the QualysGuard Security and Compliance Suite, providing customers with secure password management for authenticated scanning for IT security and compliance. Lieberman Software will exhibit this functionality this week at Qualys Security Conference 2013.

Authenticated scans require privileged identity information, which can be difficult to manage in a secure way. ERPM, Lieberman Software’s flagship privileged identity management product, automatically finds all privileged accounts in the enterprise and continuously tracks, secures and controls access to each account. With the integration of ERPM and QualysGuard, customers can manage privileged credentials in ERPM for authenticated security scans of IT resources, eliminating the need to maintain unsecure duplicate static passwords to initiate QualysGuard scans, and preventing IT administrators from attempting time-intensive manual password management actions.

“We’re pleased to announce our new partnership with Qualys,” said Philip Lieberman, president and CEO for Lieberman Software. “This integration was requested by some of our mutual enterprise customers to help them more efficiently manage expansive IT infrastructures. As large cloud environments and enterprises scale to vast numbers of systems, the need to automate privileged account management is essential to the security of all systems and devices.”

This integration is now available in the newest version of ERPM. For more information see Read the full news announcement.

Risk I/O Integrates with QualysGuard to Further Automate Vulnerability Management


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!
