Qualys, Inc. Enhances SSL Labs Service with New APIs Access to Safeguard Websites
Mar 17 15
Qualys, Inc. announced that Qualys SSL Labs now includes free assessment APIs, accompanied by a free open source tool that can be used for bulk and automated testing of websites. These new enhancements provide the same results as those obtained manually on SSL Labs, while enabling security professionals managing several websites to consolidate testing, detect changes in results and receive notifications on certificate expiration. There are often various changes that can happen, such as software updates that can reset parts of the configuration, which provides an opportunity for websites to be introduced to vulnerabilities. Qualys SSL Labs helps any user evaluate their SSL implementations to better utilize SSL and protect their sites from possible attacks. The new features within SSL Labs include: Server Assessment APIs give full access to the SSL Labs server inspection functionality, allowing programmatic invocation for any number of hosts. The availability of the APIs allow system operators to integrate SSL Labs assessment with their security policies and perform frequent automated checks. Open Source Command-Line Tool is intended for use by those who don't wish to program against the APIs. Written in Go, it also doubles as a reference client for the APIs, providing those who wish to integrate them into other projects. The APIs have already been integrated by other open source efforts in .Net, Perl, and Ruby.

BMC and Qualys Announces the First Solution to Tie Vulnerability Information
Feb 25 15
BMC and Qualys announced the first solution to tie vulnerability information to automated remediation actions. This dramatically reduces the window of vulnerability while simultaneously improving IT operational performance. While data breaches can be catastrophic, most are preventable, as 80% of exploits utilize vulnerabilities with known fixes. One of the causes of successful attacks is the misalignment of objectives between the security team, responsible for identifying vulnerabilities, and the IT operations team, responsible for implementing the changes to the systems. This misalignment is the SecOps gap. The joint solution, Intelligent Compliance, addresses the gap through a combination of security and compliance audit data from Qualys Vulnerability Management (VM) with the associated action from BMC BladeLogic Server Automation to remediate the vulnerability. Specifically, it helps: Reduce the Window of Exposure to Vulnerabilities accelerate remediation of vulnerabilities through automation. Avoid Downtime make remediation actions predictable and safe, minimizing both planned and unplanned outages. Increase Speed and Frequency of Audits run automated audits as frequently as needed, or even on-demand, without impacting other operational activities Stay Compliant with Industry Regulations take advantage of pre-built audit and remediation content for common policies and lower the Cost of Audit and Remediation automate actions that were previously manual. The integration between BladeLogic and Qualys is available now.
