On October 16th and 17th, 2014 TalaTek attended the 12th annual Qualys Security Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. The conference connected customers with Qualys engineers and leading industry experts. In addition, Qualys architects unveiled many new groundbreaking technologies which they are building into their Unified Cloud Security and Compliance Platform.
Senior Information Consultant, Joshua Grove, received hands-on training on Qualys Policy Compliance and Web Application Scanner (WAS). Qualys policy compliance helps organizations meet their appropriate PCI, FISMA, ISO and organizational security requirements by ensuring workstations, servers and device configurations are set to custom organization-defined values that are required by specific security policies.
Qualys Web Application Scanning helps discover common Web application vulnerabilities, such as cross-site scripting, SQL injection, command injection and other Web application vulnerabilities which are prevalent today.
During the conference, Qualys engineers introduced attendees to the latest improvements to Qualys Cloud Platform and demonstrated how malware steals credit card information from Point of Sale (POS) terminals.
As a Qualys services provider, TalaTek stands ready to help organizations meet their security and compliance needs with Qualys Guard Vulnerability Scanner.
