Qualys has inked an agreement to acquire TotalCloud, a cloud workflow management and no-code automation platform. Upon closing, this acquisition is expected to further strengthen Qualys’ Cloud Security solution thus enabling customers to build user-defined workflows for custom policies and execute them on-demand for simplified security and compliance.
“The acquisition of TotalCloud will allow Qualys to bring visual cloud remediation workflow technology to the Qualys Cloud Platform, underscoring our continued innovation in Cloud Security,” said Sumedh Thakar, president and CEO of Qualys.
“We are excited to welcome TotalCloud employees, including its founder Pradeep Kumar, to the Qualys family,” continued Thakar.
The TotalCloud technology will allow Qualys customers to build cloud workflows that easily automate day-to-day tasks from simple asset tagging to complex scenarios involving multiple cloud services and actions as well as integrate existing tools such as ServiceNow, Jira and Splunk into cloud workflows to automate alerting, change management, asset tagging, analytics and more.
It will also help Qualys customers trigger actions across various Qualys apps, such as automatically starting a vulnerability scan when a new virtual machine instance is detected.
