CloudView gives DevOps teams full inventory of public cloud workloads and infrastructure

SAN FRANCISCO, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA(®) Conference 2018, Booth #N3815 -- Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, today announced the availability of two new free groundbreaking services: CertView and CloudView. Harnessing the power and scalability of the Qualys Cloud Platform, CertView and CloudView provide organizations of all sizes visibility at scale to track and monitor all their digital certificates and cloud assets.

Qualys will showcase these new services during RSA(®) Conference 2018.

As organizations digitally transform, the increased adoption of encrypted machine-to-machine communication and cloud infrastructure creates rapidly changing attack surfaces and new areas of risk. In order to stay ahead of this risk, organizations must automate and centralize visibility and tracking of their global certificate deployments and cloud environments.

Qualys CertView and CloudView enable organizations of all sizes to gain such visibility by helping them create a continuous inventory and assessment of their digital certificates, cloud workloads and infrastructure that is integrated into a single-pane view of security and compliance.

"Securing the digital transformation starts with visibility of hybrid IT environments and the ability to react immediately with accuracy to threats on the new attack surface," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc. "CertView and CloudView bring the power of the Qualys Cloud Platform to global organizations, helping them discover and monitor their digital certificates and create full inventory of their public cloud assets. These are key capabilities that will help both CIOs and CISOs to adopt more proactive approaches to securing critical data during their journey to the cloud."

CertView helps customers inventory and assess certificates and underlying SSL/TLS configurations and vulnerabilities across external-facing assets to prevent downtime and outages, and to mitigate risks associated with expired or vulnerable SSL/TLS certificates and configurations. It offers:

    --  Certificate Discovery: Enabling Infosec and other teams to continuously
        scan global IT assets from the same console to discover every
        internet-facing certificate issued from any certificate authority.
    --  Certificate Inventory: Enabling reduced administrative costs by bringing
        the entire certificate estate under central control with comprehensive
        visibility of all external certificates in use across DevSecOps, InfoSec
        and IT teams.
    --  TLS Configuration Grades: CertView generates certificate instance grades
        (A, B, C, D, etc.) using SSL Labs' methodology that allows
        administrators to assess often-overlooked server SSL/TLS configurations
        without having to become SSL experts.
    --  Continuous Monitoring: Automation built into the Qualys Cloud Platform
        identifies critical issues, weaknesses and vulnerabilities for
        DevSecOps, InfoSec and IT teams.
    --  Reports and Dashboards: Dynamic dashboards provide teams with a holistic
        and contextual view of their external certificate estate, and power
        automatically created downloadable reports of certificate-related
        vulnerabilities, certificate expirations and non-compliant certificates
        across externally facing IT assets.

Customers can extend the power of these same features across their internal certificates by upgrading from Qualys CertView to Qualys Certificate Inventory (CRI) and Assessment (CA) Apps.

CloudView delivers customers topological visibility and insight about the security and compliance posture of their public cloud infrastructure for major providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. It offers:

    --  Asset discovery and inventory: CloudView continuously discovers and
        tracks assets and resources -- instances, virtual machines, storage
        buckets, databases, security groups, Access Control Lists, Elastic Load
        Balancers and users -- across all regions, multiple accounts and
        multiple cloud platforms in one central place.
    --  Complete comprehensive, multi-faceted searches: CloudView powers asset
        searches to help teams discover their threat posture based on attributes
        and relationships. It lets them find leaky storage buckets, ungoverned
        instances, and those scheduled for retirement. Complex lookups allow
        teams to identify assets that are at greater risk of attack, such as
        those that have high-severity vulnerabilities or that exist at the edge
        rather than inside the DMZ.

CloudView is free for up to three accounts per public cloud platform. Customers can instantly upgrade their subscription by adding Qualys Cloud Inventory (CI) and Cloud Security Assessment (CSA) Cloud Apps, which include:

    --  Continuous security monitoring: Boosts the security of public clouds by
        identifying threats caused by misconfigurations, unwarranted access, and
        non-standard deployments. It automates security monitoring against
        industry standards, regulatory mandates and best practices to prevent
        issues like leaky storage buckets, unrestricted security groups, and
        crypto-mining attacks.
    --  Insight and threat prioritization: Provides a 360-degree view of cloud
        assets' security posture, which includes cloud host vulnerabilities,
        compliance requirements and threat intelligence insights, so users can
        contextually prioritize remediation.
    --  Quick identification of incident causes: Quickly uncovers the root cause
        of incidents. Simple yet powerful queries deliver search results across
        a complete cloud resource inventory that shows assets' configurations
        and complex associations, allowing teams to also identify similar assets
        and mitigate issues in a unified way.

    --  Comprehensive DevOps protection: Powers automated security checks,
        identifies and eliminates issues, and standardizes deployment and
        formation templates to make production environments more secure. All
        features are supported via REST APIs for seamless integration with the
        CI/CD tool chain, providing DevSecOps teams with an up-to-date
        assessment of potential risks and exposure.
