Espiria Clients Leverage Qualys’ Web-Based Vulnerability Scanning Services
SUNNYVALE, Calif. and MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ — Qualys, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise network vulnerability assessment and monitoring solutions, and Espiria, a leading developer of comprehensive security programs, today announced a strategic partnership to provide Espiria customers with Qualys’ online network vulnerability auditing services. The agreement enhances Espiria’s current security program by offering Qualys’ Web-based scanning capabilities as another component of defense in securing their electronic environment.
Espiria security program clients will be able to automatically scan their computer networks over the Internet to identify security exposures — a proactive and cost-effective way of defending themselves against intrusion. Powered by the Qualys online vulnerability scanning platform, this on-demand service can be initiated from any location to accurately assess security risks in real-time. Because the service is Internet based, it can deliver perpetually up-to-date protection against emerging security vulnerabilities. “Securing information requires people, technology and the process to react quickly when a network is at risk of being compromised,” said Hugh Voigt, Espiria CEO. “Qualys’ offering is an important addition to our program offerings. The concise reporting process includes the exact information an executive needs to see. This is a low cost investment with an immediate and high return.”
“We’re extremely pleased that Espiria chose to integrate Qualys online scanning technology into its overall security offering,” said Philippe Courtot, Chairman and CEO of Qualys. “Network security is a continuous process and online vulnerability scanning, with its ability to proactively defend against the latest vulnerabilities, is fast becoming an important pillar of an ongoing security program.”
