AB
Cyber Security Director at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees

We primarily use the solution for full enterprise visibility from both an asset detection perspective and vulnerability detection perspective. Basically, we are tracking all the devices over agents, including PCs and servers, et cetera. 

We are able to understand what our current situation is on the devices. At the second stage, we are able to catch the devices which do not have agents or which are not in the inventory, with on-premise scanners. 

We are running security configuration hardening assessments or compliance with CIA security benchmarks. 

In addition to that, we are also utilizing the cloud assessment solution of the Qualys, to ensure compliance with CIA security standards. For example, the Amazon cloud platform is configured compliantly with the CIA security benchmark. These are the four pillars utilized.
