Qualys unveiled its latest security technologies at Qualys Security Conference, in the aim to connect customers with Qualys engineers to discuss challenges and solutions.

Organisations face ongoing security vulnerabilities and coping with high volumes of challenges can take a considerable amount of time to solve. IT teams are looking to move beyond traditional scanner-based approaches to efficiently tackle endpoint security, but are often challenged with getting full visibility and control of all IT assets needed to maintain security and compliance within their organisation.

Hadi Jaafarawi, managing director at Qualys Middle East said: "The Middle East is an important region for us as a business in terms of the increasing amount of threats targeted to enterprises. The opportunity for us to grow and develop operations is promising, by hosting events such as QSC we continue to demonstrate our commitment to engage with peers regarding strategies and best practices in this market."

Wolfgang Kandek, CTO at Qualys added: "The growing trend of successful online attacks on enterprises is one that must be given serious consideration. It is crucial for companies to integrate comprehensive security solutions into their infrastructure which reduce the probability of breaches, and guarantee the safety of business critical data. At Qualys, we remain optimistic of our vision to simplify security operations and lower the cost of compliance for enterprises and their IT departments."

At the conference, one of Qualys solutions showcased was AssetView, this offers enterprises the foundation of effective secure endpoints. The free to use asset inventory service enables companies to search for information on any IT asset where an agent is deployed, scaling to millions of assets for organisations of all sizes.

Also unveiled was ThreatPROTECT, which is a solution built on the Qualys Cloud Platform that proactively helps customers prioritise critical information at a glance. ThreatPROTECT combines data from vulnerability scans pioneered by Qualys and active threat data from various sources into a single active dashboard to provide an overall picture of the threat exposure. By implementing this service, companies can effectively organise threat protection by taking into account the scale and urgency of the weakness.
