What is Qualys?

"Qualys helps businesses consolidate their security and compliance stacks."

Qualys' integrated IT security and compliance management platform resolves organizations' vulnerability and policy compliance issues by successfully handling web applications, scans and malware detection.

The platform is cloud-based, so no software installation or upgrade is needed. Users just need to sign-up and close the sales agreement.

On top of that, Qualys offers a user-friendly website and excellent product support.
