Webcast: Rethinking Asset Management to Improve Enterprise Security

by Qualys Inc.Apr 06, 2022

One common reason behind many enterprise security breaches is that attackers found a system, application, or device that security teams didn’t know they had. Attackers can tamper with these unknown systems to make them look legitimate, and security defenders may not be able to tell the difference. You can’t protect what you don’t know about, and it is hard to tell if you have any “blind spots.” In this webinar, experts discuss technologies and strategies for mapping out a complete picture of the enterprise IT environment and identifying rogue components.

Infographic: How to Secure Your Global Remote Workforce

by Qualys Inc.Apr 30, 2020

IT organizations around the world are responding to the challenge posed by COVID-19 by ensuring that employees are able to work productively from remote locations. As we are experiencing a never—before—seen explosion of remote endpoints connecting to critical assets of the organization, security of these endpoints is on top of the mind of all IT and Security professionals.

As we look for ways to secure these endpoints, it is becoming immediately clear that traditional enterprise security solutions deployed inside the organization's network are completely ineffective in protecting these remote endpoints. The sheer volume of remote endpoints connecting over VPN gateways is already creating a lot of bandwidth pressure, adding large security updates delivered to thousands of endpoints is becoming impractical.
