TraceSecurity and Qualys Partner to Deliver Cloud-Based IT GRC Solution to SMEs and SMBs

LOS GATOS, CA, Feb 21, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- TraceSecurity, the pioneer in cloud-based IT governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions, and Qualys, Inc., a pioneer and leading provider of cloud security and compliance management solutions, today announced an integration partnership enabling organizations to leverage their investments in QualysGuard(R) Vulnerability Management (VM) solution when deploying cloud-based comprehensive IT GRC programs from TraceSecurity's TraceCSO solution.


TraceCSO is the industry's first cloud solution for a holistic and risk-based information security program that delivers comprehensive visibility and accountability for improved risk and compliance profiles across all areas of an organization, including cloud environments. While TraceCSO is equipped with its own vulnerability management capabilities, this integration enables QualysGuard users to manage their vulnerability scan results within TraceCSO's centralized interface, and influence other areas of the TraceCSO IT GRC program, such as Risk, Audit, and Compliance Management, just as they would with TraceSecurity's own vulnerability management solution.

"Vulnerability management is core to IT GRC, and we are pleased to offer this integration with TraceCSO's unique cloud-based IT GRC program solution," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys.

"This integration helps us further support the SMB and SME market by enabling customers to import results from QualysGuard scans into TraceSecurity's IT GRC solution designed for the mid-market." Vulnerability management is a critical element of an IT GRC solution and an organization's overall information security program. While the identification, classification, remediation, and mitigation of vulnerabilities itself is important, it is essential that the information gathered from vulnerability scanning can impact other critical information security program functions such as risk management, IT auditing, and overall compliance postures to ensure the organization has a complete picture of its overall risk profile.

"We find that many of our prospects are also Qualys customers, and we were pleased to rapidly respond to meet their requests to integrate with QualysGuard," said Peter Stewart, president and CEO of TraceSecurity. "With seamless integration into TraceCSO's workflow, alerting, reporting, and ticketing systems, Qualys customers will continue to benefit from their investments in vulnerability management while leveraging a leading and complete cloud-based IT GRC software solution. We look forward to our continued work and development through this partnership with Qualys." TraceCSO allows organizations of any size, industry or security skill set to evaluate, create, implement and manage a comprehensive risk-based information security program, to protect their organizations from today's top information security risks, including cloud security and "bring your own device" (BYOD) concerns. Unlike current information security program solutions, which simply provide a console and no remediation tools, TraceCSO identifies and prioritizes risk to an organization's information -- including network vulnerabilities -- and identifies, implements and audits security controls. To help organizations stay current with the latest regulatory mandates specific to their industry, TraceCSO leverages a global database of hundreds of authorities and more than 25,000 regulations and citations.
