Governance, risk and compliance provider to partner with Qualys

Qualys is to partner with Brazilian company Modulo.

Modulo, who specialises in solutions for governance, risk and compliance, announced that the two companies have formalised a partnership agreement. This will enable the integration of the QualysGuard vulnerability management and policy compliance solution and Modulo's Risk Manager, to deliver security risk and compliance management capabilities.

The integration allows Modulo users to better manage their risk by automating the gathering of security and compliance data from global assets. The Modulo Risk Manager software automatically receives vulnerabilities and misconfiguration data collected through QualysGuard scans. This data is aggregated in the Modulo Risk Manager allowing users to easily view the data, providing better tracking, risk assessment and compliance documentation.

Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys, said: “We are pleased to have Modulo as a partner and thereby offer customers a more comprehensive solution to collect security and compliance data from global assets and assess the IT risk within their networks.”

Fernando Nery, co-founder of Modulo, said: “Through this partnership with Qualys, our customers will be able to expand their knowledge of vulnerability and compliance issues within their networks and use this information in their compliance reports."
