Commenting on the new role, Ben stated, “It is a pleasure and honor to join Qualys as I have been a customer on multiple occasions and a competitor. As a result, I can appreciate Qualys’ unique ability to innovate. I have watched Qualys expand its native cloud-based vulnerability management solution into a highly scalable cloud platform that enables companies of any size to attain 360-degree visibility to secure their digital transformation initiatives and address the issue of security solution spread by providing a single integrated cloud platform that can also be delivered as a private cloud. I look forward to using my background as an experienced CISO to help customers, particularly as they deploy the newest and groundbreaking VMDR offering (Vulnerability Management, Detection and Response) and the forthcoming EDR (Endpoint Detection and Incidence Response), increase security and compliance, streamline security workflows, prioritize threats, automate responses and reduce costs. Qualys is uniquely positioned for growth and success as the security industry finally fully embraces the shift toward cloud technologies. I am delighted to be part of the team that can make that happen.”
