Washington, DC and Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
Thycotic Software and Qualys will jointly host a webinar about authenticated scanning on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 1:00 p.m. EST. The webinar will provide education about the value of performing authenticated scanning and details of how to securely perform authenticated scans through the Secret Server and QualysGuard integration.
Registration is currently open. Please register at the Qualys website.
The webinar will tell the story of America First, a national credit union that decided to perform authenticated scanning to meet compliance requirements from their auditors. Presenters Jonathan Cogley and Becca Stucky, both of Thycotic Software, will share the differences between authenticated and unauthenticated scanning and how adding an enterprise password management tool, such as Secret Server, can improve scanning results while also increasing credential security.
Qualys is a strategic technology partner for Thycotic Software and the Secret Server product. The integration allows organizations to securely store privileged account credentials, such as credentials for servers, routers, Windows local admin accounts, etc., in the secure Secret Server repository. QualysGuard can be configured to access Secret Server for the credentials it requires for vulnerability scanning. This ensures credentials are locked down on-premises and access is fully audited, while still providing credentials for scanning.
