Maxtec is thrilled to announce its strategic distribution partnership with Qualys, a trailblazer in cloud-based security and compliance solutions. This collaboration brings high-performing vulnerability management, empowering organisations to proactively safeguard their digital assets against emerging threats.
At the heart of this partnership lies the innovative Qualys TruRisk platform, a comprehensive solution that combines real-time vulnerability management with threat intelligence. The platform enables businesses to gain a holistic view of their security status and prioritise vulnerabilities based on their potential impact. With this proactive approach, organisations can allocate resources effectively and address critical vulnerabilities before they are exploited by malicious actors.
One of the standout features of the Qualys TruRisk platform is its vulnerability management, detection and response (VMDR) capability. VMDR integrates vulnerability assessment, threat intelligence and patch management into a unified workflow, providing organisations with an efficient and streamlined approach to protect their systems. By automating the entire vulnerability management process, VMDR significantly reduces response times, improves the efficiency of security teams and minimises the risk of successful cyberattacks.
What sets Qualys apart from other solutions is its cloud-native architecture, enabling swift deployment and scalability. As a leader in the industry, Qualys regularly updates its threat intelligence database, ensuring that businesses stay ahead of the evolving threat landscape. This proactive approach to security, combined with real-time visibility and continuous monitoring, empowers businesses to make informed decisions and effectively mitigate risks.
With Maxtec’s extensive expertise in cybersecurity and its robust distribution network throughout Africa, this partnership with Qualys represents a significant milestone for both organisations. As the first distributor for Qualys in Africa, Maxtec takes pride in offering this cutting-edge technology to the region and supporting businesses in their cybersecurity journey.
Africa is an emerging market with tremendous growth potential. By partnering with Qualys, we aim to bridge the gap in vulnerability management and equip businesses with the necessary tools to protect their digital assets,” said Maxtec MD Praven Pillay. “We are excited to offer the Qualys TruRisk platform to our partners, enabling them to proactively manage vulnerabilities, reduce risks and strengthen their overall security.”
