Winner: Qualys for QualysGuard

QualysGuard on demand vulnerability and compliance management solutions provide the easiest to deploy and most comprehensive way to reduce security risk and meet regulatory compliance needs. All a company needs is a web browser to scan its network to spot and fix vulnerabilities and collect compliance data.
Delivered via a software-as-a-service architecture, the cost of QualysGuard is, on average, 50 to 90 percent less than traditional software scanning solutions. With QualysGuard, organizations can effectively manage their vulnerabilities and maintain control over their network security with centralized reports, verified remedies and full remediation workflow capabilities with trouble tickets.

QualysGuard provides comprehensive reports on vulnerabilities and compliance issues, including severity levels, time to fix estimates and impact on business, plus trend analysis on security and compliance issues.

With the on-demand approach, Qualys has simplified the process of vulnerability scanning. When implementing QualysGuard, there is no infrastructure to deploy or manage. The on-demand model not only saves valuable time and resources, but also allows managers and auditors to get a continuous view of a company's security posture.
In addition, the Qualys Vulnerability Lab maintains the industry's largest vulnerability database with over 6,000 unique checks based on Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) standards. Automated signature regression testing ensures quality security audits for customers and daily updates. The Qualys Lab is like having a large in-house staff of security experts exclusively focused on researching vulnerabilities.

Creating an automated process to continuously monitor network security and identify vulnerabilities is critical to protecting the enterprise and maintaining regulatory compliance. IT managers recognize that no network security strategy is complete without proactive, continuous vulnerability assessment, and the QualysGuard on-demand service is uniquely designed to meet this need.
