Webmaster ToolsMOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – VeriSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRSN), the trusted provider of Internet infrastructure services for the networked world, and Qualys, Inc., the leading provider of on demand IT security risk and compliance management solutions, today announced a strategic relationship whereby iDefense intelligence is integrated with scanning data from QualysGuard® Vulnerability Management (VM). The integration drives immediate availability of two new services that combine advanced, in-depth security threat intelligence and vulnerability scanning data, which enables enterprises to protect critical IT assets from compromise or attack, particularly against zero-day threats and vulnerabilities. Zero-day threats are exploitable security vulnerabilities in software that are discovered before the software vendor identified them and begun a process for patching.

Through the first of these services, iDefense has made its iDefense Exclusives security vulnerability data available through QualysGuard® VM. Availability of iDefense Exclusives enables Qualys to create scan signatures for zero-day vulnerabilities. This enhancement to QualysGuard VM offers security teams more efficient and accurate risk mitigation capability against zero-day threats and vulnerabilities.
