Understanding overall security and compliance risk is an integral part of a risk management program. The integration of security and compliance solutions has provided some insight to understanding this risk, but lack true security risk as organizations are challenged with hundreds or even thousands of vulnerability detections every day.

Integrating QualysGuard and Modulo

Modulo provides a simple mechanism for importing asset and vulnerability data into Modulo Risk Manager. With Modulo Risk Manager, QualysGuard Vulnerability Management data is tightly integrated into the risk management program, allowing vulnerability risk to be correlated with other risks, controls, and assets providing a holistic management perspective of the most important risks.

 

Integration Benefits

 

Asset Synchronization and Correlation

Schedule import of assets from QualysGuard Vulnerability Management to constantly keep your asset management module updated with new assets and vulnerabilities.  In addition, correlate these assets with other business assets in Modulo to understand business risk.

Holistic IT Risk Approach

QualysGuard Vulnerability Management data is automatically collected and integrated into the risk management program, allowing vulnerability risk to be correlated with other risks, controls, and assets, providing a holistic management perspective of the most important risks.  In addition, the Risk Score, the formula used to calculate the risk score for vulnerabilities, can be customized using the following variables:

    • Asset Criticality
    • Asset Relevance
    • CVSS Score
    • Vulnerability Level
    • Vulnerability Type
