Security and compliance specialist Qualys is releasing the latest version of its Vulnerability Management, Detection and Response (VMDR) solution in conjunction with TruRisk, which offers risk-based vulnerability management for unique posture insights at the risk of an organization, which allows it to prioritize its most important threats. .
Qualys VMDR 2.0 gives security and IT teams a shared context and the ability to create workflows through drag and drop technology to quickly adapt and respond to threats.
Features include Qflow technology, built on the Qualys Cloud Platform, which delivers drag and drop visual workflows that empower understaffed to easily automate complex vulnerability management tasks such as launching scans on ephemeral cloud assets or quarantining high-risk assets that saves valuable resources and time.
There is also seamless integration with ITSM tools such as ServiceNow ITSM and Jira with patch management along with evidence-based risk scoring to enable collaboration between security and IT teams for automated ticketing and patch orchestration to reduce remediation time.
Preemptive attack alerts prevent the spread of malware by linking actively exploited CVE with malware and external threat indicators. Alerts can proactively identify other critical assets that are vulnerable to similar CVEs to stop the spread of malware.
“In this era of increasing legislation and board -level attention to cyber resiliency, the ability to efficiently manage cyber risk is more important than ever,” said Sumedh Thakar, president and CEO of Qualys. “With VMDR 1.0, we’ve evolved by bringing the four key elements of vulnerability management into a seamless workflow to help organizations respond efficiently to threats. We’re changing the game again with that VMDR 2.0 by prioritizing risk marking, dragging and dropping workflows, and Integrating ITSM into the vulnerability management lifecycle.Organizations can now initiate remediation workflows for tasks in vulnerability management, prioritize remediation of critical risk-reducing issues, and streamline responses and integration with ITSM solutions such as ServiceNow. “
