VMS to improve security and ensure compliance for organisations

SINGAPORE, 7 NOVEMBER 2008 Tata Communications has made its Vulnerability Management Service (VMS) globally available.

VMS is part of its Managed Security Services suite, said the Indian communications giant, a member of the US$62.5 billion Tata Group.

Tata's VMS is built upon Qualys' QualysGuard vulnerability management and compliance solutions. Qualys is a provider of on-demand IT security risk and compliance management solutions.

Qualys' vulnerability management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution is already a standard for more than 35 per cent of the Fortune 100, claimed Tata Communications.

Vulnerability assessment

VMS provides discovery and mapping of IT assets, asset prioritization, vulnerability assessment, remediation tracking, and comprehensive reporting, said a Tata Communications resource person. The service automates the process of enterprise vulnerability management and supports policy compliance initiatives.

According to the communications provider, once the service is deployed, it 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.
