In this video recorded at Black Hat 2011 in Las Vegas, Sumedh Thakar, Vice President of Engineering at Qualys, talks about QualysGuard Web Application Scanning (WAS) 2.0, the new QualysGuard User Interface (UI) as well as the new QualysGuard Consultant Edition.
The new UI for the QualysGuard IT Security and Compliance SaaS Suite features interactive dashboards, streamlined workflows, actionable menus and filters with improved visual feedback, making it easier for customers to utilize the comprehensive services in the QualysGuard Suite.
QualysGuard WAS 2.0 enables organizations to leverage the power and scalability of the cloud to discover, catalogue and scan large numbers of web applications. The new version also simplifies the complexity and reduces costs of web application scanning with an automated solution with an extremely low false positive rate and a rich dynamic UI that simplifies the workflows for scanning and reporting.
A new edition of the QualysGuard Consultant service features virtualized scanner appliances (vScanners) and a report customization module. The new edition brings the power of the SaaS model to consultants, delivering accurate network auditing, comprehensive vulnerability assessments, policy compliance and web application scanning, reducing time on-site for consultants and providing data-rich, customizable reports.
