Qualys, Inc., a pioneer and leading provider of disruptive cloud-based IT, security, and compliance solutions, today announced its participation in the Microsoft Security Copilot Partner Private Preview. Qualys was selected based on its proven experience with Microsoft Security technologies, willingness to explore and provide feedback on cutting-edge functionality, and close relationship with Microsoft.
“AI is one of the defining technologies of our time and has the potential to drive meaningful, step-change progress in cybersecurity,” said Ann Johnson, corporate vice president, Microsoft Security Business Development. “Security is a team sport, and we are pleased to work alongside our Security Copilot partner ecosystem to deliver customers solutions that enhance cyber defenses and make the promise of AI real.”
Qualys is working with Microsoft product teams to help shape Security Copilot product development in several ways, including validation and refinement of new and upcoming scenarios, providing feedback on product development and operations to be incorporated into future product releases, and validation and feedback of APIs to assist with Security Copilot extensibility.
“Recognizing Microsoft’s commitment to enhancing global cybersecurity, we’re thrilled to collaborate with them as AI’s influence on the changing cybersecurity landscape is undeniable. While attackers are harnessing AI’s untapped potential, it’s time for the cyber risk defenders to get ahead,” said Pinkesh Shah, chief product officer, Qualys. “This is why we’re working alongside Microsoft in this important initiative of managing cyber risk proactively, not just reactively, which aligns with our Enterprise TruRisk Platform, enabling organizations to measure, communicate and eliminate their cyber risk more effectively.”
