Qualys Strengthens Infosys’ Cyber Next Platform-Based Service Offerings
Qualys, a global provider of disruptive cloud-based IT, security and compliance solutions, has announced that Infosys, the next-generation digital services and consulting leader, will integrate Qualys VMDR and Multi-Vector EDR into its Cyber Next Platform, a managed security service offering.
Powered by the Qualys Cloud Platform, Qualys VMDR (Vulnerability Management, Detection and Response) and Multi-Vector EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) will collect vast amounts of telemetry from the Qualys Cloud Agent and multiple sensors, to combine with network information, for a broad view of the environment, going beyond just the endpoint. This will help eliminate false positives and significantly reduce lateral movements of security breaches to spread further from the initial point of compromise. The result will be a next-generation, 24×7 managed detection and response (MDR) offering that can enable Infosys to detect and respond to security incidents quickly across an entirely hybrid environment. Infosys customers can also extend their use of the Qualys Cloud Agent to Patch Management, File Integrity Monitoring and other functionalities.
“Infosys is one of the global leaders in next-generation digital services, and we are delighted to partner with them,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys. “Integrating Qualys VMDR and Multi-Vector EDR with Infosys’ existing managed security services uniquely provides Infosys’ clients with full visibility, much lower false positives and one-click remediation, in an end-to-end solution across their hybrid IT environments.”
“We are pleased to partner with Qualys to deliver VMDR and Multi-Vector EDR solutions via our global distributed network of Infosys Cyber Defense Centers,” said Vishal Salvi, Chief Information Security Officer and Head, Cyber Security Practice, Infosys. “The highly scalable Qualys Cloud Platform, with its lightweight agent, sensors and its forthcoming incidence response capabilities, provides us with intelligent analytics that we need to effectively protect our clients. This functionality strengthens our Cyber Next Platform powered services to provide deep visibility and actionable insights, thereby assuring digital trust.”
