Qualys and FireMon Enable Real-Time Network Risk Visibility and Remediation

Qualys and FireMon Enable Real-Time Network Risk Visibility and Remediation 
Proactive Attack Simulation and Threat Detection Automated Through
Integration of Leading Security and Vulnerability Management
LONDON -- (Marketwired) -- 04/22/13 --  InfoSecurity Europe --
Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud
security and compliance solutions, and FireMon, the leading provider
of security management and risk analysis solutions, today announced
the integration of QualysGuard Vulnerability Management (VM) and
FireMon Security Manager with Risk Analyzer in FireMon's upcoming
Version 7.0 release. 
This enables customers to analyse 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. Security organisations
can now automate the real-time identification of assets that are
truly at risk within their networks, and prioritise their remediation
efforts to reduce the greatest amount of risk with the least amount
of effort.  
With the integration, QualysGuard VM provides information feeds for
the full lifecycle of network auditing and vulnerability management,
including network discovery and mapping, asset prioritisation,
vulnerability reporting correlated with known malwares and exploits,
and remediation tracking according to business risk. Leveraging the
QualysGuard Cloud Platform, it offers the most comprehensive
vulnerability KnowledgeBase in the industry and six sigma accuracy,
and the scalability to scan across even the largest, most complex
environments, for public or private cloud, and including network
perimeters, DMZs and LANs.  
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, provides customers with the most comprehensive and
real-time solution to identifying exactly what assets on their
network are at truly at risk and which they should remediate first to
reduce the greatest amount of risk. 
Philippe Courtot, Chairman and CEO of Qualys, commented: "As IT
environments are becoming increasingly complex with critical assets
with information residing in multiple locations inside or outside of
the enterprise firewall, identifying critical vulnerabilities and
prioritising their remediation on a continuous basis has become
essential. Our integration with FireMon now allows us to provide a
proactive attack simulation before hackers can get in."  
Jody Brazil, President and CTO of FireMon, commented: "The integrated
FireMon Security Manager with Risk Analyzer and QualysGuard
Vulnerability Management solution empowers IT Security organisations
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
