Proficio Partners with Qualys to Expand its Managed Detection and Response Services


Integrates Qualys Cloud Platform for Advanced Visibility, Security, and Compliance

Proficio, an award-winning global managed security services provider (MSSP), today announced it is partnering with Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, to fully integrate the Qualys suite of cloud-based solutions with Proficio’s Managed Detection and Response capabilities.


As part of the expanded partnership, Proficio clients now have access to Qualys apps including Vulnerability Management, Asset Inventory Cloud Agents, File Integrity Monitoring, Policy Compliance, and ThreatProtection, which contributes to Proficio’s strategy of providing continuous threat visibility and protection. Proficio will also leverage Qualys’ groundbreaking Global IT Asset Discovery and Inventory App to help its clients to create a continuous, real-time inventory of known and unknown assets across on-premises, endpoint, multi-cloud, mobile, container, OT and IoT environments.


“We are excited to expand our successful partnership with Qualys and leverage their leading cloud security and compliance solutions,” said Brad Taylor, CEO of Proficio. “Qualys allows us to take advantage of integrating a single backend while providing our clients with the functionality of 19 applications enabling enhanced visibility and deeper analysis for improved security. This is unique in the industry.”


“Adding Qualys apps to Proficio Managed Security Services provides clients with a single-pane-of-glass to view threats across their global IT infrastructure including mobile, cloud, on-premises, or IoT environments,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO for Qualys. “Furthermore, by integrating the Qualys Cloud Platform with their existing Managed Security Services, Proficio further enhances its next-generation managed services offering to provide their clients with full visibility, real-time detection, and response.”
