DENVER -- February 3, 2014

Accuvant, the Authoritative Source for information security, today announced
the immediate availability of its new Vulnerability Management Service (VMS),
the latest innovative offering in its managed services portfolio. VMS combines
elements of Qualys’ industry-leading QualysGuard Cloud Platform with
Accuvant’s advanced security expertise and methodologies, providing
enterprise-level organizations with a continuous vulnerability scanning and
validation service. It enables enterprise organizations to outsource a
critical function while ensuring protection so they can focus on other
important aspects of their business.

“Security threats continue to rise each year, while simultaneously increasing
in sophistication and malicious intent. Without proper planning and
investment, organizations may find themselves vulnerable to attack,” said Todd
Weber, Accuvant’s vice president of managed services. “Accuvant’s new
Vulnerability Management Service helps companies ensure the integrity of their
environments. It provides the ongoing monitoring, maintenance and regularly
scheduled updates that are key contributors to the continuing effectiveness of
any security solution.”

“Accuvant has built an impressive portfolio of managed security and consulting
services,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys. “QualysGuard
augments Accuvant’s offerings with an advanced vulnerability management
platform, helping clients secure and protect IT assets on a continuous basis.”

Accuvant’s VMS delivers rigorous, recurring vulnerability scanning and testing
with a consultative approach. It can be customized to ensure the entire
vulnerability management lifecycle is proactively executed, and is available
in three tiers:

  *Gold – includes service customization, managed scanning, results
    validation, GRC integration and access to the QualysGuard portal.
  *Silver – features managed scanning, results tempering and access to the
    QualysGuard portal.
  *Bronze – includes managed scanning based on agreed upon metrics, such as
    number of hosts and types of assets.

All of Accuvant’s 24x7x365 network monitoring, management and maintenance
services are delivered from the company’s secure operations center by
experienced security personnel.
