Qualys and Cyber-Ark announced QualysGuard integration with Cyber-Ark’s Privileged Identity Management (PIM) Suite.
With this integration, customers can store and manage credentials required by authenticated vulnerability and compliance scans within their own networks directly in the Cyber-Ark Enterprise Password Vault (EPV), part of the PIM Suite. This allows better management of the administrator credentials in a collaborative environment, while providing QualysGuard the ability to more easily conduct trusted scans.
The QualysGuard IT Security and Compliance Suite uses a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) architecture to automate the process of vulnerability management and policy compliance. Cyber-Ark PIM Suite secures, manages and monitors all privileged accounts and activities associated with datacenter management – on premise or in the cloud.
With the new integration, users can configure QualysGuard to access IT systems’ privileged credentials directly from the Cyber-Ark’s PIM in order to conduct automated trusted scans. With Cyber-Ark’s PIM Suite, the privileged credentials are securely protected and periodically changed to meet corporate security policies and comply with regulations. The joint solution protects access to company data, while expanding the coverage of the security scans, providing a more complete, accurate view of IT security and compliance.
