Qualys introduces private cloud version of QualysGuard platform

Customers can host and operate the security and compliance platform within their data centres

By CBR Staff Writer

Qualys has introduced a private cloud version of its QualysGuard Cloud Platform that allows customers and partners to host and operate the security and compliance platform within their data centres to meet the varying needs of private, community, public, and hybrid cloud services.

The QualysGuard Private Cloud Platform is packaged as a virtual application to allow for rapid deployment into existing virtual infrastructures.

It is a standalone version of the full multi-layer, multi-tenant services architecture of the QualysGuard Cloud Platform, deployed for the private use of a specific customer or partner.

The QualysGuard Private Cloud Platform can be used by customers and partners who are located in countries with strict data sovereignty rules prohibiting the movement of sensitive security information across national borders.

It is also useful for government entities with strict data possession requirements, which prohibit the use of public cloud services, and hosting providers that want to offer value-added security services to their tenants, serviced from their own infrastructure.

MSSPs that want to provide a more exclusive offering to their customer base can use the platform in addition to large organisations with hundreds of thousands of IT assets and corresponding large security and compliance data sets.

Qualys chairman and CEO Philippe Courtot said, "The new virtualised QualysGuard Private Cloud Platform allows us to extend our security and compliance solutions to such environments that require a private cloud instance on premise, offering the full benefits of our cloud solutions without the complexity and cost associated with deploying traditional enterprise software."
