Organizations are striving to execute digital transformation processes and bring innovation to the forefront. Organizations are further aiming to transform their processes, operations, and leadership to become digital enterprises. Specifically, companies are investing in 3rd Platform technologies and innovation accelerators to meet their targets within given timelines. However, organizations have to deal with the rapidly changing demands of their customers as well as a threat landscape that is getting increasingly complex. Organizations also have to contend with new vulnerabilities and technologies, meet customer demand for a seamless experience, and increasingly address issues relating to risk and trust.

How do we regain the insight in our environments? We have lost much insight in how our IT operations and security is operated and more importantly how it is performing. With the relentless move to cloud platforms, being a private or public one, or perhaps even a hybrid, we stand to lose even more visibility and control in our day 2 day and strategic operations. What do enterprises need to do to regain control? How have Qualys customers taken on this challenge?

In this presentation we aim to help you see a path forward, and roads into the near and distant future of your IT infra and asset management.
