February 22, 2011 – Qualys has unveiled its second-generation security-as-a-service platform that uses Java and a number of open-source technologies.
eWeek brought this news to our attention in their article, “Qualys Revamps Managed Security Platform with Java Back-End.” To make the unveiling possible, Qualys overhauled its managed-security service with open-source components and virtualization technologies.
The new platform uses Apache Solr for clustered data indexing and tagging, and technology from Terracotta and Ehcache for Web-scale application clustering. All this to make it easy for IT managers to spot anomalies and identify security issues.
