qualys background rounded

Qualys is the leading provider of on demand IT security risk and compliance solutions - delivered as a service. Qualys solutions enable organizations of all sizes to easily and cost-effectively ensure that their business technology systems remain highly secure and within regulatory compliance.

In recent years, the demands on companies and government agencies to protect their networks and applications from attacker exploits that threaten the security of proprietary information—including customer data—have skyrocketed. Not only has the dependence on IT systems increased for nearly every business, but so have the financial motivations of criminals to breach those systems.

The result is an increase in the sophistication of attacks that jeopardize the confidentiality, integrity and availability of applications, data and critical business networks. At the same time, the demands of regulatory compliance have risen dramatically. Whether it's the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act, the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act, Sarbanes-Oxley, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, or the multitude of state data breach disclosure acts such as SB-1386, regulatory compliance has touched nearly every organization— from small internet merchants to multinational corporations.

Qualys' on demand security risk and compliance management solutions make it possible for organizations to strengthen the security of their networks and conduct automated security audits that ensure regulatory compliance and adherence to internal security policies. Qualys is the only security company that delivers these solutions through a single Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform: QualysGuard'. All of Qualys' on demand solutions can be deployed within hours anywhere around the globe, providing customers an immediate view of their security and compliance posture. As a result, QualysGuard is the most widely deployed security on demand solution in the world, performing more than 500 million IP audits (maps and scans) per year.
