Qualys announces cloud-based all-in-one security suite for small businesses

Qualys has announced Express Lite, an all-in-one security and compliance cloud-based solution for small businesses.

Among the features included is network and server monitoring, which will also produce reports that highlight vulnerabilities and list patches that can fix them. It also packs web application scanning, website malware detection, and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance automation.

The security suite makes use of the QualysGuard Cloud Platform to offer businesses protection against Internet attacks, without the need to install additional software.

“Our mid-sized customers have been using QualysGuard Express due to its ease of use and actionable security results that help organisations fend off cyber attacks and avoid data breaches,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys.

“The new Express Lite offering will be ideal for small business customers who have limited IT resources and need a comprehensive security and compliance monitoring solution that is simple to use and fits within their budget.”

With 31 per cent of all attacks in 2012 targeting small businesses, according to a report by Symantec, the need for improved security is as pressing as it has ever been.

Express Lite will be available in July for an annual subscription starting at £635. A 14-day trial is also available.
