Routes vulnerabilities through investigation and remediation processes.

Qualys has announced a partnership with MetricStream to create a framework that enables customers to identify, report and remediate vulnerabilities.

A combination of the MetricStream IT-GRC Solution and QualysGuard Vulnerability Management, it provides a single framework to monitor and capture asset and network vulnerabilities and route them through investigation and remediation.

According to the companies, this integration enables customers to identify and report on the vulnerabilities affecting business-critical assets, map security issues to business applications, and aggregate and rollup risk information across their enterprise for mitigation.

It works by the QualysGuard VM locating and identifying network devices and applications, and scanning them for vulnerabilities. It then provides information on the nature of those vulnerabilities.

MetricStream IT-GRC then imports this data and initiates remedial action by assigning investigative responsibilities to personnel.

Alerts ensure that action plans are carried out to closure, while dashboards and reports provide visibility of the status of each case, enabling tracking and trend analysis.
