TraceSecurity and Qualys Partner to Deliver Cloud-Based IT GRC Solution to SMEs 
and SMBs 
Seamless Integration Enables Organizations to Create Comprehensive IT
GRC Programs Leveraging Qualys' Market-Leading Vulnerability
Management Solution 
LOS GATOS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/13 --  TraceSecurity, the
pioneer in cloud-based IT governance, risk and compliance (GRC)
solutions, and Qualys, Inc., a pioneer and leading provider of cloud
security and compliance management solutions, today announced an
integration partnership enabling organizations to leverage their
investments in QualysGuard(R) Vulnerability Management (VM) solution
when deploying cloud-based comprehensive IT GRC programs from
TraceSecurity's TraceCSO solution. 
TraceCSO is the industry's first cloud solution for a holistic and
risk-based information security program that delivers comprehensive
visibility and accountability for improved risk and compliance
profiles across all areas of an organization, including cloud
environments. While TraceCSO is equipped with its own vulnerability
management capabilities, this integration enables QualysGuard users
to manage their vulnerability scan results within TraceCSO's
centralized interface, and influence other areas of the TraceCSO IT
GRC program, such as Risk, Audit, and Compliance Management, just as
they would with TraceSecurity's own vulnerability management
"Vulnerability management is core to IT GRC, and we are pleased to
offer this integration with TraceCSO's unique cloud-based IT GRC
program solution," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys.
"This integration helps us further support the SMB and SME market by
enabling customers to import results from QualysGuard scans into
TraceSecurity's IT GRC solution designed for the mid-market." 
Vulnerability management is a critical element of an IT GRC solution
and an organization's overall information security program. While the
identification, classification, remediation, and mitigation of
vulnerabilities itself is important, it is essential that the
information gathered from vulnerability scanning can impact other
critical information security program functions such as risk
management, IT auditing, and overall compliance postures to ensure
the organization has a complete picture of its overall risk profile. 
"We find that many of our prospects are also Qualys customers, and we
were pleased to rapidly respond to meet their requests to integrate
with QualysGuard," said Peter Stewart, president and CEO of
TraceSecurity. "With seamless integration into TraceCSO's workflow,
alerting, reporting, and ticketing systems, Qualys customers will
continue to benefit from their investments in vulnerability
management while leveraging a leading and complete cloud-based IT GRC
software solution. We look forward to our continued work and
development through this partnership with Qualys." 
TraceCSO allows organizations of any size, industry or security skill
set to evaluate, create, implement and manage a comprehensive
risk-based information security program, to protect their
organizations from today's top information security risks, including
cloud security and "bring your own device" (BYOD) concerns. Unlike
current information security program solutions, which simply provide
a console and no remediation tools, TraceCSO identifies and
prioritizes risk to an organization's information -- including
network vulnerabilities -- and identifies, implements and audits
security controls. To help organizations stay current with the latest
regulatory mandates specific to their industry, TraceCSO leverages a
global database of hundreds of authorities and more than 25,000
regulations and citations.
