EBAY, Inc. - Securing the World's Online Marketplace with QualysGuard
Since most of the partner companies have smaller networks and correspondingly fewer IT resources, eBay required an automated solution that would make vulnerability assessment of third-party infrastructures very easy. Efficient management of the security data was a major issue.The automation built into QualysGuard immediately allowed eBay to do vulnerability assessments on demand, including rapid scans for the most recent vulnerabilities anywhere in its own network and in partner networks. In addition to reporting, QualysGuard also simplifies vulnerability management processes at eBay. The role-based authorization feature of QualysGuard allows eBay to compartmentalize responsibility for specific engineers allowing them to scan and view reports for specific IPs, such as the infrastructure in the Asia/Pacific region.
