Qualys Announces Two New Free Services to Help Organisations to Gain Visibility of their Digital Certificates and Cloud Assets

Posted By - DynamicCISO,

 Qualys a few weeks ago announced the availability of two new free groundbreaking services: CertView and CloudView. Harnessing the power and scalability of the Qualys Cloud Platform, CertView and CloudView provide organizations of all sizes visibility at scale to track and monitor all their digital certificates and cloud assets.

Qualys showcased these new services during recently concluded RSA Conference 2018.

As organizations digitally transform, the increased adoption of encrypted machine-to-machine communication and cloud infrastructure creates rapidly changing attack surfaces and new areas of risk. In order to stay ahead of this risk, organizations must automate and centralize visibility and tracking of their global certificate deployments and cloud environments.

Qualys CertView and CloudView enable organizations of all sizes to gain such visibility by helping them create a continuous inventory and assessment of their digital certificates, cloud workloads and infrastructure that is integrated into a single-pane view of security and compliance.

“Securing the digital transformation starts with visibility of hybrid IT environments and the ability to react immediately with accuracy to threats on the new attack surface,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc. “CertView and CloudView bring the power of the Qualys Cloud Platform to global organizations, helping them discover and monitor their digital certificates and create full inventory of their public cloud assets. These are key capabilities that will help both CIOs and CISOs to adopt more proactive approaches to securing critical data during their journey to the cloud.”

CertView helps customers inventory and assess certificates and underlying SSL/TLS configurations and vulnerabilities across external-facing assets to prevent downtime and outages, and to mitigate risks associated with expired or vulnerable SSL/TLS certificates and configurations. It offers:

  • Certificate Discovery: Enabling Infosec and other teams to continuously scan global IT assets from the same console to discover every internet-facing certificate issued from any certificate authority.

  • Certificate Inventory: Enabling reduced administrative costs by bringing the entire certificate estate under central control with comprehensive visibility of all external certificates in use across DevSecOps, InfoSec and IT teams.

  • TLS Configuration Grades: CertView generates certificate instance grades (A, B, C, D, etc.) using SSL Labs’ methodology that allows administrators to assess often-overlooked server SSL/TLS configurations without having to become SSL experts.

  • Continuous Monitoring: Automation built into the Qualys Cloud Platform identifies critical issues, weaknesses and vulnerabilities for DevSecOps, InfoSec and IT teams.

  • Reports and Dashboards: Dynamic dashboards provide teams with a holistic and contextual view of their external certificate estate, and power automatically created downloadable reports of certificate-related vulnerabilities, certificate expirations and non-compliant certificates across externally facing IT assets.
