Agiliance and Qualys Partner to Provide Security Risk Assessment On Demand


QualysGuard and Agiliance RiskVision Integration Offers Comprehensive GRC Solution for Real-Time Risk Management

San Jose and Redwood Shores, Calif., – August 4, 2010 – Agiliance Inc., the leading provider of integrated Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, and Qualys, Inc., the leading provider of on demand IT security risk and compliance solutions, today announced a technology partnership to integrate QualysGuard vulnerability and asset data with Agiliance’s real-time risk and compliance solution, RiskVision. The integration of QualysGuard with Agiliance RiskVision enables customers to leverage the power of both platforms to achieve real-time continuous compliance and IT security risk assessment on demand.

To meet the growing market demand for real-time risk management, Agiliance has integrated its RiskVision platform with QualysGuard to deliver real-time security risk management on demand. The combination of QualysGuard’s on demand vulnerability scan results and Agiliance’s real-time business and security data provides customers with an always-on, always-current view of their security risk postures. The real-time risk data enables better prioritization of response and allocation of security resources. With the ability to measure security risks on demand, a security response team can receive instant feedback on remediation effectiveness to meet stringent security policies and regulatory compliance mandates.

“Our partnership with Agiliance provides customers with an effective IT security risk management solution to assess risk based on the security posture of assets collected from QualysGuard scans,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys. “With this integration, customers can identify threats and vulnerabilities in real-time and optimize their ability to mitigate these risks quickly and effectively.”

The partnership between Agiliance and Qualys brings together two of the industry’s top technologies. Agiliance RiskVision received the highest possible rating of “Strong Positive” in the latest Gartner MarketScope for IT GRCM, and QualysGuard Vulnerability Management (VM) received the highest possible rating of “Strong Positive” in Gartner’s Vulnerability Assessment MarketScope. Already, the integrated solution is in use at one of the largest electric companies in the U.S. for cyber threat intelligence and a major healthcare organization, where it is being leveraged for enterprise risk management. It is also being deployed by a financial services technology solution provider for FFIEC risk assessments and PCI compliance.

“The integration with QualysGuard further extends Agiliance’s leadership in the GRC market,” said Joe Fantuzzi, CEO of Agiliance. “Combining QualysGuard’s on demand security data with our real-time business and security risk data provides our customers with a scalable, cost-optimized and comprehensive IT risk management solution that helps them be more secure and compliant.”
