Qualys brings External Attack Surface Management to the Qualys Cloud Platform

Qualys , a provider of disruptive cloud-based IT , security and compliance solutions , has announced it is adding External Attack Surface Management ( EASM ) capabilities to the Qualys Cloud Platform .

Integrated into Cybersecurity Asset Management 2.0 , the new component adds the external attacker view to identify previously unknown Internet-facing assets for a complete and accurate picture of the enterprise attack surface .
Digital Transformation , increased adoption of cloud and Internet of Things ( IoT ), a growing remote workforce and a technology talent shortage have led to an exponential rise in organisations ’ attack surface . This expansion makes it harder for security teams to correlate externally visible and internally managed assets and govern compromises that occur because of undiscovered , unmanaged , or poorly managed IT assets . Organisations need a new approach to view vulnerable assets from the outside in and execute like an attacker to quickly identify areas of risk .
“ Organisations must proactively manage their cyber defences , which includes finding and addressing vulnerabilities to reduce cyber-risk ,” said Michelle Abraham , Research Director , Security and Trust at IDC . “ Qualys ’ unique approach to EASM is integrating the internal and external asset data from Cybersecurity Attack Management with its Vulnerability Management , Detection and Response ( VMDR ) solution into a single view .”
