Sox-In-A-Box Joins Forces With Qualys

By | February 23, 2006

The defacto standard in Vulnerability Scanning, Qualys, has come together with Sox-In-A-Box to create a unique product offering for their clients. Sox-In-A-Box now offers a bevy of vulnerability scanning solutions with their product and service offerings.

Qualys meets the security requirements of business requirements under Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, GLBA, CoBIT and many other Federally mandated requirements by supplying on demand, continuous network security audits and vulnerability management. Called QualysGuard, it is delivered as an independent, third party service. QualysGuard resolves traditional barriers and transcends the limitations of software tools and provides an end-to-end process for vulnerability management.

When both products/services are used in conjunction with each other, you can rest assured that the stringent requirements of Sarbanes-Oxley are being attended to. The use of QualysGuard allows Sox-In-A-Box to schedule routine scans of your network as is required under the Sarbanes-Oxley rules. The customizable reports allow Sox-In-A-Box to pin point the exact area(s) of weakness and remediate them immediately.

Because QualysGuard is run remotely via the web, there is no need for expensive consulting fees. Sox-In-A-Box set’s up the scheduled scans once, and the rest is purely automated with no network degradation. The scans can even be performed while you are in production mode.
