Qualys VMDR – Vulnerability Management, Detection and Response
Qualys announces two virtual events: VMDR Live and Qualys response to Rapid7 marketing campaign against VMDR
Qualys, Inc., a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, announced the immediate availability of its game-changing solution, VMDR® – Vulnerability Management, Detection and Response.
“The Toyota Financial Services team is an early adopter of VMDR,” said Georges Bellefontaine, manager of vulnerability management at Toyota Financial Services. “VMDR raises the maturity of our Vulnerability Management program to its next level. It allows additional monitoring of the infrastructure to identify vulnerabilities and weak asset hardening effectively, accurately and in real time to better prioritize needed remediation. The paradigm change is the use of machine learning capabilities to correlate multiple issues discovered by multiple Qualys apps, and in real time join these issues with their metadata and filters to prioritize actionable remediation. VMDR provides focus on actionable issues to drive the reduction of imminent risk without doing the analysis outside of the Qualys platform.”
“Qualys VMDR is a real game changer for us, as it integrates several critical security solutions into one, enabling us to devote all of our focus on providing our customers with a holistic solution to meet their Vulnerability Threat Management (VTM) needs,” said Ryan Smith, vice president of product at Armor. “Now, we can offer VMDR as part of our security-as-a-service offering and provide customers with visibility across their entire hybrid IT environment. VMDR from Qualys also delivers unprecedented response capabilities including options for protecting remote users, which has become a top priority for CISOs in the current environment.”
“In a world where cloud concepts increasingly dominate, with multiple hosted services providing functionality previously owned and operated by on-premises IT, many existing approaches to solving these problems predicated on deployment within a traditional enterprise network are now showing their age. Dragging traffic back to a VPN concentration point will likely not be the preferred method indefinitely, if only for availability and capacity considerations alone. If an outcome of the current crisis is a more enduring entrenchment of remote work for the indefinite future, the changes in enterprise security architecture they precipitate may come to stay. The performance of these services will have to meet or exceed that expected from direct connection to the target – which makes it seem likely that cloud providers in the best position to meet this demand may either embrace these trends directly or become key enablers of new approaches,” said Scott Crawford, research vice president, security at 451 Research, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence.

“VMDR brings Vulnerability Management to the next level as it provides customers with a comprehensive platform that is easy to use and deploy across complex hybrid environments, which are a challenge for companies to secure,” said Rik Turner, principal analyst, Omdia. “Furthermore, VMDR is cloud-native and built with scale in mind; it uses a scanning agent and passive scanning technology to provide accurate telemetry, which positions Qualys to move further into cloud security and traditional enterprise solutions such as EDR and SIEM.”
“We are proud to bring our VMDR offering to market. It is the culmination of many years of effort to make vulnerability management an end-to-end solution that cuts across the entire hybrid environment and one that is real time, accurate, easy to deploy and operate,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys. “I would like to thank our customers who have helped in this endeavor and our engineers, who, despite the current difficulty, have been working from home to finalize and ship VMDR.
