Lumension and Qualys offer combined vulnerability management solution
Lumension Security, an endpoint management and security company, and Qualys, a provider of cloud security and compliance solutions, have announced a partnership to provide customers with comprehensive vulnerability assessment and patch management solutions.
The partnership will help both companies’ customers more effectively detect risks and apply the latest security patches in their organizations, the companies said. QualysGuard Vulnerability Management (VM) automates network auditing and vulnerability management across an organization, including network discovery and mapping, asset management, vulnerability reporting, and remediation tracking. It will be integrated with Lumension’s Patch and Remediation solution, which helps IT administrators automatically identify and patch vulnerabilities across numerous operating systems, Microsoft and non-Microsoft applications, and endpoint configurations.
Lumension will offer QualysGuard VM to current Lumension Scan customers and provide support in transitioning those customers to QualysGuard VM. Lumension will transition out its Lumension Scan product in April.
"To keep up with business demands, organizations are seeing a proliferation of end point devices that they must secure against an ever-changing landscape of possible threats," said Philippe Courtot, Qualys chairman and CEO. "We are pleased to partner with Lumension to offer a powerful integrated vulnerability management solution helping businesses and government agencies easily and cost effectively manage the security of their endpoint devices in an effort to keep IT assets and data across their organizations secure and compliant."
Qualys has more than 6,000 customers in more than 100 countries, it says. The QualysGuard Cloud Platform, including QualysGuard VM and other integrated solutions deliver security intelligence and automate auditing, compliance, and protection for IT systems and Web applications.
Lumension, with more than 5,100 worldwide customers, provides solutions in areas including vulnerability management, endpoint and data protection, antivirus, and reporting and compliance.
