Logicalis, Qualys join forces
Logicalis SA, an IT solutions and managed services provider, has partnered with Qualys, a provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions.
According to the companies, the partnership will bring cloud-based security and compliance solutions to the South African and African markets.
The Qualys Cloud Platform and its integrated apps aim to help businesses simplify security operations and lower the cost of compliance by delivering security intelligence on demand and by automating the full process of auditing, compliance and protection for IT systems and Web applications.
Caesar Tonkin, cyber security services lead at Logicalis SA, says investment in digital transformation and cloud infrastructure is skyrocketing. Along with the opportunities, this also brings new security risks.
There are new vulnerabilities, regulations and tools introduced all the time, making the IT environment extremely complex. Qualys helps companies consolidate their security and compliance requirements into a single platform to ensure ongoing compliance, he adds.
