"Consultant-based penetration testing is not just costly, but is also impossible to scale since there aren't enough humans on earth to test the 600 million online websites. The strategic partnership of Qualys and iViZ aims to solve this big problem by providing a high quality, scalable and affordable cloud-based offering to secure and remediate web applications globally," said Bikash Barai, CEO and co-founder of iViZ Security.
"Web applications have become the primary target of cyber attacks and present a difficult challenge for organizations due to the cost and complexity required to secure and protect them," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO for Qualys. "Using QualysGuard WAS to quickly and easily scan web applications along with the penetration testing services from iViZ provides organizations with a comprehensive solution for finding and remediating security vulnerabilities at a cost they can afford."
