New Internet Security Service Available from Qualys, Sunbelt

Sunbelt Software announced the availability of a new subscription-based, automated network security service.

QualysGuard enables system, network, and security managers to manage their network vulnerabilities on an ongoing basis and enhance their e-commerce security and hacker resistance.

QualysGuard, developed by Qualys Inc., is an artificial intelligence (AI)-based vulnerability scanner that maps subscribers’ network perimeters, scans for holes, and generates immediate, browser-based prioritized reports of its findings. IT managers can then fix discovered security breaches in order of their severity.

QualysGuard scans from securely hosted centralized servers located on the Internet. Subscribers need no software, hardware, and no specialized expertise to use the service, only a browser and password. An average of four updates per day are centrally made to the vulnerability knowledge base without any action required from the subscriber. Updates are immediately available to the security auditing process.

QualysGuard was introduced into the IT market via the W2Knews, an electronic newsletter published by Sunbelt, and is available for download from Sunbelt’s Web site.
