SAN FRANCISCO – RSA CONFERENCE 2014 – Qualys, a provider of cloud security and compliance solutions, this week added Continuous Monitoring to its flagship QualysGuard suite of applications for security and compliance.

According to Qualys, the new offering gives organizations the ability to proactively identify threats and unexpected changes in Internet-facing devices within their DMZ, cloud-based environments, and web applications.

“It brings a new paradigm to vulnerability management, empowering customers to continuously monitor mission-critical assets throughout their perimeter and immediately get alerted to anomalies that could expose them to cyber attacks.

Built on the QualysGuard Cloud Platform, the service allows companies to continuously monitor:

Hosts and devices exposed to the Internet – to see whenever systems appear, disappear, or are running unexpected operating systems.

Digital certificates – to track SSL certificates used on systems to know if they are weak or self-signed, and when they’re due to expire.

Ports and services open on each system – to keep tabs on which network ports are open, which protocols are used, and whether they change over time.

Vulnerabilities on hosts or applications – to know when vulnerabilities appear (or reappear), whether they can be exploited, and if patches are available.

Applications installed on perimeter systems – to find out when application software gets installed or removed from these systems.

Available immediately in Beta for all QualysGuard customers, the new Continuous Monitoring solution is scheduled for general availability on March 27, 2014.

Pricing starts at $295 for small businesses and $1,995 for larger enterprises, and is sold as annual subscriptions based on the numbers of perimeter IPs being monitored.
