FOSTER CITY, Calif., June 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and FedRAMP Authorized cloud-based IT, security and compliance solution provider today announced the availability of Qualys Remote Endpoint Protection for U.S. federal agencies via a no-cost 60-day pilot.

The Qualys remote endpoint security offering allows security teams to leverage the lightweight Qualys Agent to:

  • Complete an up-to-date inventory of all their remote endpoint hardware and the applications they are running
  • Ensure remote systems are secure with a real-time view of all critical vulnerabilities, malware and misconfigurations impacting the OS and applications
  • Remotely patch and respond to malware on these systems quickly from the Qualys Gov Platform with one click without using the limited bandwidth available on VPN gateways
  • Realize visibility in device hygiene by tracking common misconfigurations that leave remote and telework endpoints exposed to exploits

Qualys Remote Endpoint Protection with malware detection allows security teams to gain instant and continuous visibility of remote endpoints, easily detect missing patches and malware, and deploy patches from the Qualys Gov Platform. Patches are delivered securely and directly from vendors’ sites to ensure there is little to no impact on external VPN bandwidth.

For federal agencies that already have the Qualys Agent deployed, these systems can be easily enabled to deploy patches via the Qualys Gov Platform, without the need to touch the client systems.

«The entire Qualys team is pleased that during these critical times, we can offer a real solution that will allow U.S. federal agencies to ensure the security of remotely deployed endpoints to support telework,» said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys. «Thanks to our FedRAMP Authorized cloud-based implementation, this no-cost pilot will enable agencies to quickly assess and remediate in real time their security and compliance posture and patch remotely deployed devices with the click of a button.»

«We’re proud to partner with Qualys to provide federal agencies with the security solutions they need as they migrate to the cloud,» said Steve Jacyna, director of the Qualys team at Carahsoft Technology Corp. «The dramatic increase in telework across the federal government makes ensuring endpoint security vital. Now through Qualys’ 60-day pilot, we can offer agencies these remote endpoint protection capabilities at no cost.»

Note: 
The initial version supports patching and malware detection on Microsoft Windows 7 and above.
