Cloud-based IT, security and compliance solutions provider, Qualys, is expanding into China through the establishment of a private cloud platform and a partnership with Digital China. As one of the largest value-added providers of integrated IT products, solutions and support for enterprises in China, Digital China will manage and support the Qualys Private Cloud Platform from China and distribute and resell Qualys’ solutions.
This partnership would enable organizations in China to leverage qualities of the Qualys Cloud Platform to integrate apps like Vulnerability Management, Detection and Response (VMDR), Multi-Vector EDR, and an upcoming Security Analytics and Incident Response solution all in a single Qualys Cloud console.
This native, cloud-based platform, which can be delivered as a private cloud, would uniquely allow organizations to discover, assess, prioritize, patch or mitigate any critical vulnerabilities that make their way to the client IT environment. It also provides real-time assessment of devices that connect to the network, malware identification and endpoint protection on a global scale.
“Digital China is a premier integrated IT service provider that helps customers accelerate essential Digital Transformation efforts,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys. “They streamline customers’ existing enterprise security and compliance point solutions stack, so they can effectively secure their hybrid environment with an approach that scales, increase much-needed visibility and respond to threats before hackers create irreparable damage. This partnership enables us to increase our global footprint and enables Digital China to offer customers a consolidated approach that brings the power of the Qualys Cloud Platform to China.”
Endpoints, Cloud, Mobile, Containers, OT, IoT
Qualys VMDR provides an all-in-one cloud-based app that automates the entire vulnerability management cycle across on-premises, endpoints, cloud, mobile, containers, OT, and IoT environments. It would significantly accelerate the ability of organizations to respond to threats and prevent breaches. Qualys offers an endpoint detection and response solution for clients looking to recognize suspicious patterns and uncover hidden incidents. Qualys Multi-Vector EDR provides vital context and comprehensive visibility to the entire attack chain, from prevention to detection to response – all from a single solution.
Additionally, Qualys plans to launch a ‘Next-gen Security Analytics and Incident Response’ product line that natively integrates and correlates security telemetry across the security stack. The solution would integrate Qualys and third-party products such as O365, AWS CloudTrail, SecurityHub, Zoom, Salesforce, Firewalls, IPS/IDS, Proxy, VPNs, AVs, et cetera, into a cohesive security incident and response platform. It includes native support for User and Asset Behavior Profiling and Analytics (UEBA), threat hunting, intelligence, and automated response with out-of-the-box support for MITRE ATT&CK detection use cases.
“We are pleased to represent Qualys and to offer our customers access to their industry-leading solutions,” said Jing Li, vice president, Digital China. “Qualys’ all-in-one, cloud-based apps will help our customers, especially those engaged in digital transformation projects for hybrid and cloud environments, significantly accelerate their ability to respond to threats and prevent breaches.”
