Published on March 22, 2012

OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS — Lockpath, a provider of innovative governance, risk and compliance (GRC) applications, and Qualys, the pioneer and leading provider of cloud information security and compliance management solutions, today announced an integration partnership to offer businesses unique visibility into their security and risk postures.

Through this partnership, users can benefit from QualysGuard’s highly accurate vulnerability data from scans of enterprise assets automatically imported into Lockpath’s GRC solution, Keylight™, augmenting its risk reporting capabilities with security intelligence to produce a holistic view of business risk.

The combined solution offers:

  • A customizable dashboard that enables managers and executives to better understand risks to the organization.
  • Automatic correlation and classification of vulnerability data with enterprise assets to provide insight into business and operational risk.
  • Centralized reporting for vulnerability data in addition to other security and compliance data points.
  • An automated approach to import vulnerability data from QualysGuard, as well as the ability to assign tasks and track remediation via Keylight’s workflow engine.

“Through our partnership with Qualys, users gain an almost immediate understanding of how discovered vulnerabilities fit into the context of their organizations’ overall security and risk posture,” said Chris Caldwell, CEO, Lockpath. “The effortless and streamlined integration of the Keylight platform with QualysGuard VM further validates what we believe is our obligation to ensure our Connector Library enables our customers to avoid fragile and time-consuming custom integrations”.

“The increase in data breaches, regulations and disclosure requirements for cyber security risks to the business have become a front-and-center concern in the boardroom,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys. “The integration between Lockpath and QualysGuard now provides C-level executives with a flexible and easy-to-implement framework for deriving and reporting on risks based on accurate security and compliance data that QualysGuard collects continuously across the entire enterprise.”
