Ivanti, the company that automates IT and security operations to discover, manage, secure and service from cloud to Edge, and Qualys, Inc, a pioneer and leading provider of disruptive cloud-based IT, security and compliance solutions, have announced an expanded partnership.
The partnership provides for the integration of Ivanti Patch Management technology within the Qualys VMDR (Vulnerability Management Detection Response) platform. The next phase of the integration will allow Qualys customers to patch MacOS systems, as well as over 70 third-party Mac applications, directly through Qualys VMDR.
The Ivanti and Qualys partnership provides for tight integration of Ivanti Patch Management into Qualys VMDR to automate and simplify the patch remediation process. As a result, customers will be able to quickly detect vulnerabilities, from endpoint to data centre and automatically deploy expertly pre-tested Mac patches across dozens of third-party applications. Current Microsoft patch coverage includes both security and non-security content for all supported products, operating systems and applications, including Microsoft Office.
“Ivanti’s expanded partnership with Qualys further underscores our mission to help deliver end-to-end security solutions,” said Nayaki Nayyar, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer, Ivanti. “Our recently announced Ivanti Neurons platform powers security teams with advanced automation capabilities to discover, prioritise, remediate vulnerabilities and self-heal endpoints and Edge devices.”
“The seamless integration of Ivanti and Qualys technologies in VMDR takes endpoint security to the next level,” said Sumedh Thakar, President and Chief Product Officer, Qualys.
“By extending Ivanti’s leading patch management technology from Windows to Mac, Qualys VMDR now orchestrates the entire process of discovery, prioritisation and patching of critical vulnerabilities in real time across hybrid IT environments including macOS devices. Furthermore, it allows us to bridge IT and SecOps workflows to more efficiently secure and manage today’s explosion of remote workers.”Click below to share this article
