Coalfire partners with Qualys to further strengthen its cloud automation services

Coalfire, a trusted provider of cybersecurity assessment and advisory services, announced that it has partnered with Qualys, a leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, to integrate Qualys’ vulnerability management and continuous monitoring capabilities into Coalfire’s Secure Cloud Automation Services (SCAS).

Qualys will also be a leveraged partner – both internally and by independent third-party assessors – to validate system inventory, configuration compliance, and secure maintenance of the underlying systems.

Coalfire’s SCAS leverages the company’s extensive security, compliance, and engineering experience along with the power of leading cloud service providers and world-class technical vendors to quickly deploy preconfigured cloud infrastructure that meets organizations’ security and compliance requirements.

Teams conduct an initial workshop and consultation, working collaboratively with clients, to determine the best methods to design and deploy the client’s security infrastructure.

With Qualys, a FedRAMP-authorized cloud security provider, Coalfire’s SCAS clients gain capabilities to enhance, monitor and maintain their environment via orchestration of vulnerability management, validation of configuration compliance and verification of cloud asset security posture.

“The SCAS process of ‘Design, Monitor, Build, Deploy and Threat Model’ will be supported by top-tier partners where they can add high value for our customers,” said Mark Carney, executive vice president, Cybersecurity Services, Coalfire.

“We are thrilled to welcome Qualys as a new partner in the ‘threat monitoring’ capability of SCAS, strengthening the offering to improve our customers’ overall security posture along with enhancing their ability to meet FedRAMP requirements.”

“The Qualys architecture enables cloud customers to achieve built-in FedRAMP compliance and security while migrating to public clouds,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc. “By enabling Qualys within the Coalfire SCAS, its customers can now integrate compliance and security into their Cloud workload orchestration.”
