Choosing a solution for Vulnerability Management (VM) is a critical step toward protecting your organization's network and data. Without proven, automated technology for precise detection and remediation, no network can withstand the daily onslaught of new vulnerabilities that threaten security.
The goal of a security program is to choose and implement cost effective countermeasures that mitigate the vulnerabilities that will most likely lead to loss.
This paper discusses the management of Risk and how Vulnerability Management is one of the few counter-measures easily justified by its ability to optimize risk.
New network vulnerabilities appear constantly and the ability for IT security professionals to handle new flaws, fix misconfigurations and protect against threats requires constant attention. However, with shrinking budgets and growing responsibilities, time and resources are at constrained. Therefore, sifting through pages of raw vulnerability information yields few results and makes it impossible to accurately measure your security posture.
This book is a quick guide to understanding IT policy compliance. It surveys the best steps for preparing your organization's IT operations to comply with laws and regulations - and how to prove compliance to an auditor.
Data breaches are bad for business, so every enterprise needs security. In the past this was expensive, because security products were designed for companies with deep pockets and teams of experts.

Vulnerabilities are very common nowadays. Even being a safest network does not mean that it cannot be compromised. It's how you handle these vulnerability and flaws and rectify the issues. In order help the security engineers Qualys, Inc. pioneer security brings free guide on Top 10 reports for Managing Vulnerability. This paper cuts through the data overload generated by some vulnerability detection solutions.
Vulnerability Management (VM) means systematically finding and eliminating network vulnerabilities. Choosing a solution for VM is a critical step toward protecting your organization's network and data. Without proven, automated technology for precise detection and remediation, no network can withstand the daily onslaught of new vulnerabilities that threaten security.
This checklist from Qualys provides a 12 point shortlist of considerations to determine what solutions will work best for your organization.
Welcome to Web Application Security For Dummies! Web applications have become the Achilles heel of IT security. Web application vulnerabilities are now the most prevalent at more than 55 per cent of all server vulnerability disclosures. This figure doesn't include vulnerabilities in custom-developed web applications, so it may be just the tip of the iceberg. This book is all about understanding how to quickly find and fix vulnerabilities in web applications. The goal is to prevent attackers from gaining control over the application and obtaining easy access to the server, database, and other back-end IT resources.
Learn what 488 IT professionals have to say in the 2014 Application Security Programs and Practices survey. Results indicate an increase in number of organizations with a formal application security program in place. Approximately 83% of respondents (up from 66%) have an Appsec program in place, and more than 37% (up from 33%) have a program that has been operating for more than five years.
Health care organizations face a variety of security challenges—from the growing presence of online personal data to new methods of accessing and transferring medical information. Protecting sensitive data requires more vigilance than ever.

Drivers for cloud solutions include the need to innovate, simplify and cut costs. Users say a key benefit cloud-based security is no need to deploy equipment or software. The cloud provider furnishes and hosts everything in secure data centers. This arrangement lets your business avoid capital expenses and to control ongoing costs.
This paper describes how your small or medium-sized company can manage IT risks and maintain regulatory compliance with minimal staff and budget.
Health care is often considered a lucrative business for those involved in waste, fraud and abuse. Today’s ever-accelerating technology changes make data related to health care, medical and financial issues even more attractive (and profitable) to cybercriminals who sell medical identities and siphon money from stolen financial records. Risks are exponentially increased because of organizations’ reliance on electronic systems for mission-critical functions. According to 61% of respondents to the SANS 2014 State of Cybersecurity in Health Care Organizations survey, medical/health record systems
are considered the most at-risk information asset among the 224 health care-related organizations represented in the survey.
In this guide, Qualys describes internal risks to IT security and three best practices to control incorrect configurations. Critical components to this include automation of assessments and prioritization of risks. By using the automation technology in Qualys Policy Compliance, organizations can ensure the safety of sensitive data and IT while meeting mandates for compliance.
This guide describes the need for continuous monitoring and offers a blueprint for creating a continuous security practice. As a result, continuous monitoring will give your organization the most comprehensive view of its global perimeter, and empower you to proactively identify and address potential threats enabled by vulnerabilities in software or weak system configurations.
