Qualys' new location in Canada gives joint customers the strategic advantage they need when addressing Canadian data regulations," said Charles Henderson, global head of X-Force Red at IBM.

The Qualys Cloud Platform is built on a modern, cloud-native, microservices-based architecture that delivers an extensible, scalable, powerful and, above all, more secure IT environment. "This dynamic platform provides a highly-scalable environment that delivers full visibility across on-premises, endpoint, cloud and mobile environments allowing companies to have a continuous view of their security posture and respond accordingly," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc.
