Together, ThreatConnect and Qualys enable data-driven patching prioritization for the risk management and SOC teams. The integration helps organizations see where threats and vulnerabilities cross paths and understand where the organization is most at risk. It does this by matching Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) data from sources in ThreatConnect against Qualys scan results. Any matching unpatched vulnerabilities found within Qualys are tagged accordingly in ThreatConnect, with the option to store scan result details as an attribute. In addition, tasks can be created to notify users of the matching vulnerabilities and the need for further action. Scan result details will be provided as an attribute of the task or a document associated with the task.
