Qualys’ (NASDAQ:QLYS) cybersecurity solution, Qualys Vulnerability Management, Detection and Response (VMDR) was recognized as the Best Vulnerability Management Solution at the SC Awards 2022.

The SC Awards recognize the best solutions involved in the advancement of information security. The best vulnerability management solution category specifically recognizes stand out products in a crowded market that bring results in the monitoring and identification of vulnerabilities based on risk before hackers can use them to compromise systems.

“Having VMDR 2.0 with TruRisk helps us identify the most critical risks for our specific business, in our unique environment. The automation Qualys VMDR enables makes our teams more efficient, as they are focusing a lot less on managing spreadsheets and spending more time and effort on higher-value work like penetration testing, identifying blind spots and taking steps to reduce risk,” said Brian Penn, security posture manager at Aflac.

Qualys’ business is cloud-based security, compliance and IT solutions, and the company sports 10,000 subscription customers worldwide, with a majority of the Forbes Global 100 and Fortune 100 as partners and clients. Qualys helps organizations automate their security and compliance solutions onto a single platform to help provide greater outcomes while reducing overhead.

Specifically the Qualys VMDR represents a significant convergence of discovery, assessment, detection and response to help clients navigate their day to day while remaining safe from threats.

VMDR 2.0 with TruRisk is the company’s latest update to its platform, and it has helped to refine how organizations measure risk and aided in decision making in terms of risk mitigation strategies by helping them to kick off remediation workflows, prioritize remediation for critical issues and streamline response and integrations.

VMDR uses the Qualys cloud platform, which performs over 6 billion scans per year, with 84 cloud agents across servers, endpoints, clouds and containers, culminating in 10+ trillion data points indexed on Elasticsearch Clusters, giving customers two second visibility.

“We are honored to receive such prestigious recognition from the industry in the 25th year of the renowned SC Awards 2022. This recognition is a testament to the many hours of dedication and hard work from our talented team at Qualys. As pioneers of the vulnerability management space, we take pride in the significant outcomes we drive for our customers in their journey to prioritize remediation on the critical issues that reduce their overall risk,” said Mehul Revankar, vice president of VMDR at Qualys.
