Teaming with Red Hat, Qualys is offering a unique approach designed to provide a containerised Qualys Cloud Agent that extends security to the operating system.

The Cloud Agent for Red Hat Enterprise Linux CoreOS on OpenShift combined with the Qualys solution for Container Security is designed to provide continuous discovery of packages and vulnerabilities for the complete Red Hat OpenShift stack.

According to Aaron Levey, head of security partner ecosystem at Red Hat, a strong partner ecosystem can help to address security concerns by offering a wide range of solution choices.


“Security is one of the biggest areas of concern for nearly every organisation,” Levey said.

“Qualys' Cloud Platform and Cloud Agent helps administrators gain deeper visibility into known vulnerabilities that may be present on their Red Hat Enterprise Linux CoreOS nodes with pointers to associated Red Hat Security Advisories, leaning on the expertise of Red Hat as well as Qualys’ own skills in driving cloud-native security.”

Built on the Qualys Cloud Platform, Qualys’ solution aims to seamlessly integrates with customers’ vulnerability management workflows, reporting and metrics to help reduce risk.
