LAS VEGAS, Nov. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- AWS re:Invent, Booth #2529 – Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, today announced an integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Hub, introducing Qualys vulnerability and policy compliance findings within AWS Security Hub. This allows users to prioritize risks and automate remediation using native services such as AWS Lambda.
AWS Security Hub is designed to provide users with a comprehensive view of their high-priority security alerts and compliance status by aggregating, organizing, and prioritizing alerts, or findings, from multiple AWS services, such as Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Inspector, and Amazon Macie as well as from other AWS Partner Network (APN) security solutions. The findings are then visually summarized on integrated dashboards with actionable graphs and tables.
Vulnerability and configuration assessments are key to any security program. By natively integrating Qualys findings from Vulnerability Management, Policy Compliance and Cloud Security Assessment within AWS Security Hub, customers will get real-time visibility into their up-to-date security and compliance posture, directly in the AWS console. These insights gained by the correlation of Qualys information with other data in AWS Security Hub allow customers to quickly detect risks in their AWS environments, and take rapid automated remediation actions.
"AWS Security Hub gives enterprises the ability to build security and compliance visibility directly into all of their development and cloud projects," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc. "By enabling Qualys within the AWS Security Hub, developers can easily leverage up-to-date insights about security risks, and ensure their clouds conform to company policies and standards."
"AWS Security Hub makes it easier for customers to identify and manage all of their AWS-related security and compliance findings," said Dan Plastina, vice president, Security Services, Amazon Web Services, Inc. "Users can also combine these rich findings with additional data from multiple security services, including integrated Qualys Cloud Apps, to find further insights and actionable intelligence for every identified vulnerability."
Qualys Vulnerability Management, Policy Compliance and Cloud Security Assessment are now available within AWS Security Hub.
Users can identify the following across their AWS workloads and infrastructure:
- Instances and AMIs with critical vulnerabilities, missing critical patches, and which may be publicly exposed or have publicly exploitable vulnerabilities.
- Compliance with Center for Internet Security (CIS), PCI, NIST and HIPAA along with the standards customized and adapted to their organizations.
- Misconfiguration in their Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs), AWS security groups, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) against CIS web services benchmarks and best practices.
Qualys will continue to add security insights from other products within its cloud platform's integrated security solution into AWS Security Hub.
