Qualys Announces Agreement to Acquire Assets of Nevis Networks

Acquisition adds significant domain expertise and technology in network traffic analysis

Accelerates move into the adjacent market of endpoint mitigation and response

Qualys, Inc., a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, announced that it has entered into an asset purchase agreement with Nevis Networks, pursuant to which Qualys will acquire certain assets of Nevis Networks in a cash transaction. This asset purchase is expected to provide significant domain expertise in passive scanning technologies and allow Qualys to accelerate its move into the adjacent market of mitigation and response at endpoints.

Nevis†has built a series of high performance security products that extend similar levels of protection found in the perimeter to all users on enterprise LANs. These solutions allow enterprises to share network access to managed (employees) and unmanaged users (guests, contractors, customers) whilst providing the necessary control required by compliance and regulatory bodies.†Nevis’†highly scalable and cost-effective solutions are seamlessly integrated into the policy infrastructure of the network.

“This transaction will enable the strengthening of Qualys’ technology stack and commercial presence in†India, which represent a significant market opportunity,” said†Philippe Courtot, chairman, and CEO, Qualys, Inc. “Nevis Networks has built a series of high performance and low-cost network traffic analysis tools that help enterprises enforce network access control to business applications based on policy, which Qualys will natively integrate into the Qualys Cloud Platform. In essence, this acquisition helps us to strengthen our forthcoming passive scanning offering and accelerate our entrance into the adjacent market of mitigation and response.”

About Nevis Networks Technologies

  • Nevis EndPoint Security Solution†is an appliance solution providing automated endpoint compliance, user authentication, quarantining, guest user provisioning, and management and comprehensive reporting features. The solution works to ensure that all endpoints in the organization are compliant with respect to organizational policies. Nevis Network Admission Control (NAC), via an agent, can scan every endpoint in the organization to remediate or quarantine such an endpoint using vlan switching of downstream switches. Nevis NAC participates in the user authentication process and allows access to the network only after successful authentication using vlan switching techniques. Users can use various devices such as desktops, laptops, handheld devices like smartphones, etc. to access the network.
  • Nevis’†Identity-driven LAN Security†is designed to provide complete protection for enterprise networks and the users on the network. The first step towards comprehensive LAN security is the verification of the user endpoint for compliance.†Nevis†checks the endpoint to ensure anti-virus and windows patches are up to date.†Nevis†then participates in the user’s authentication and authorization to the network (such as Active Directory) and then maintains a mapping of MAC address, IP address, and user credentials. This is used by†Nevis†to enforce network access control to enterprise applications based on the policies assigned to the user within the policy infrastructure.

Qualys expects the transaction to close during the third quarter of 2017.† Nevis Networks is based in†Pune, India†and will be integrated with Qualys’ existing†Pune†operation. The acquisition will incorporate†Nevis’s†engineering team into Qualys’†Pune†offices. Qualys will continue to support existing Nevis Network customers and sell their products and solutions in†India.
