Qualys Continuous Monitoring is a next-generation cloud service that gives you the ability to identify threats and unexpected changes in your Internet perimeter before they turn into breaches. With it, you can track what happens within Internet-facing devices throughout your DMZs and cloud environments – anywhere in the world.
In this podcast recorded at Black Hat USA 2014, Sumedh Thakar, Chief Product Officer at Qualys, talks about a new approach to vulnerability management and network security, enabling you to immediately identify and proactively address potential problems.
