Qualys integrates with Google Cloud Platform's Security Command Centre

Qualys customers will be able to access information about threats Google has identified too

Qualys and Google Cloud Platform can now play nicely together with the launch of the security firm's Cloud Security Command Center (Cloud SCC) integration.

The security and data risk platform will boost the security of business' cloud infrastructure, helping companies collect data to identify threats and fix them before they become a genuine concern.

"As businesses leverage new technologies to accelerate their digital transformation efforts and move into the cloud, their focus needs to shift towards building security into applications, as well as interconnected devices, right from the start," Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO at Qualys said. "And this is what Google is doing with their Cloud Platform, helping businesses build security into the fabric of their workloads."

The product is an update to Qualys' previous GCP integration, but this new addition allows businesses to gain more detail about security, drilling down into more detail, which can then be used to innovate a better security strategy for every possible vulnerability. With one click, users can then head back to their Qualys subscription to find out more information about the threats uncovered in GCP.

Qualys' tie-up with Google also means users are able to tap into Google's own security information, including the latest data about botnets, cryptocurrency mining, anomalous reboots and suspicious network traffic threats.

"Now more than ever, the cloud is where an increasing number of enterprises are turning to protect their data and stay secure," said Andy Chang, senior product manager at Google Cloud. 

"With Cloud Security Command Center, we are helping security teams gather data, identify threats, and quickly act on application and data risks. By working with industry leaders like Qualys, we are giving our customers the capabilities they need to keep up with today's ever evolving security challenges especially as they move workloads to the cloud."
