Vulnerability scanning is an inspection of the potential points of exploit on a computer or network to identify security holes.
A vulnerability scan detects and classifies system weaknesses in computers, networks and communications equipment and predicts the effectiveness of countermeasures. Vulnerability scans are also used by attackers looking for points of entry.
Continuous visibility of threat picture:
On-premises, at endpoints or in the cloud, we use Qualys Cloud Platform sensors which are always on, giving you continuous visibility of all your IT assets. Remotely deployable, centrally managed and self-updating, the sensors come as physical or virtual appliances, or lightweight agents.
Real time data analysis:
Our Cloud based Platform provides an end-to-end solution, allowing you to avoid the cost and complexities that come with managing multiple security vendors. The Cloud Platform automatically gathers and analyzes security and compliance data in a scalable, state-of-the-art backend, and provisioning additional cloud apps is as easy as checking a box.
