Tata Communications Launches Vulnerability Management Service (VMS)

Tata Communications has launched a new Vulnerability Management Service (VMS) built upon Qualys' "QualysGuard" vulnerability management and compliance solutions.

Tata Communications' VMS provides discovery and mapping of IT assets, asset prioritization, vulnerability assessment, remediation tracking, and comprehensive reporting. The service automates the process of enterprise vulnerability management and supports policy compliance initiatives. The service is aimed at companies that need to comply with regulatory, statutory, industry, and internal requirements such as PCI DSS, SB1386, HIPPA, Sarbanes Oxley, and the EU Data Privacy Directive.

Tata Communications' said its new service enables IT security and system administration staff to leapfrog the complexities around assessment and information management and focus on the remediation tasks that require business and technical judgment, leveraging the automated capabilities that are foundational element of the new service. Qualys' vulnerability management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution is already a standard for more than 35% of the Fortune 100, and Tata Communications is now able to deliver the same capabilities to its customers.
