PRESS RELEASE: Qualys announced it was named the 2014 Company of the Year by analyst firm Frost & Sullivan for continued innovation in the fields of IT security and compliance. Qualys was recognised for its product excellence, innovative product roadmap and unique approach to helping customers implement continuous security solutions on a global scale.
“We are honoured to be recognised by Frost & Sullivan for this prestigious award,” said Philippe Courtot, Chairman and CEO of Qualys, Inc. “We had a very successful 2014 and attribute much of our success to the close relationships we share with our customers and partners who continuously help us improve our cloud solutions. In the year ahead, we will continue to broaden our portfolio of solutions, helping customers to proactively respond to cybercriminals by providing them the visibility and intelligence needed to secure their infrastructures on a continuous basis.”
“Qualys was among the first vendors to recognise the value of cloud-based security platforms and the benefits it could provide organisations,” said Chris Kissel, analyst for Frost & Sullivan. “We present this year’s award to Qualys for product excellence and its unique, unified cloud approach to help its customers simplify security operations and lower the cost of compliance. In addition, Qualys has committed to a robust product roadmap in 2015 to further broaden the scope of its on-demand services, which we believe will drive continued innovation in the network security market.”
Frost & Sullivan’s research methodology offers a 360-degree view of industry challenges, trends, and issues by integrating all seven of Frost & Sullivan’s research methodologies.
