Qualys Announces New Flagship Product, Qualys VMDR

Qualys announced its new flagship product, Qualys VMDR, at RSA Conference 2020. According to the Qualys website, VMDR will be available after March 30, 2020.

Qualys VMDR, which stands for Vulnerability Management, Detection, and Response, is an all-in-one cloud-based product for vulnerability scanning and management. In addition to the standard vulnerability management offering, this new product includes built-in orchestration, which combines vulnerability management, threat detection and prioritization, response, and asset management into a cyclical process that Qualys refers to as the VMDR cycle.

Our Take

Qualys VMDR is intriguing, as it connects the dots on remediation activity through its new orchestration model. The tying in of asset management is a logical step, as it empowers an organization to operationalize the configuration management of its assets. As of this writing, it is unclear what level of integration Qualys VMDR will have with third-party IT asset management (ITAM) or IT service management (ITSM) systems.
