Qualys Security Assessment Questionnaire

Qualys is introducing Security Assessment Questionnaire in this release of the Qualys Cloud Platform. Qualys Security Assessment Questionnaire is a cloud-based service that enables you to collect and analyze information about your business easily, quickly, and without reinventing the wheel. With this service, you can expand the scope of risk and compliance data beyond technical controls and vulnerabilities to verify that third-party vendors are in compliance with emerging regulatory requirements. By automating a traditionally manual process, Qualys Security Assessment Questionnaire frees you from unreliable and labor-intensive approaches such as email and spreadsheets and optimizes the accuracy of your audit results. For more information, see the Qualys Security Assessment Questionnaire Product Page.
