The service allows customers to analyze zero-day threats and estimate their impact on their assets and critical systems based on information collected from previous scan results.
It provides the following capabilities:
- Latest Information and signatures for iDefense exclusive zero-day threats
- Customizable alerting and email notifications on new zero-days and critical threats that could impact corporate assets
- Actionable data with estimates about what systems are at risk using existing asset information from previous scans
- Risk modeling to help determine the benefit of mitigating actions on exposed systems.
“Zero-day attacks are becoming more prevalent and such attacks can happen to any of us,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys. “With this new service, we provide customers a proactive solution to estimate the impact of such critical threats on their assets and decide what mitigating controls to put in place until real patches are available.”
QualysGuard Zero-Day Risk Analyzer is available immediately in the US and Europe and it is sold as an annual subscription with QualysGuard vulnerability management subscriptions. It is priced annually at $12,000 for large enterprises and $6,000 for small- and medium-sized businesses.
