Joint customers can automate web app scanning and focus bug bounties on advanced vulnerabilities, helping them increase breadth of security testing and reduce cost SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 13, 2017) - RSA Conference USA 2017, Booth #N3817 -- Qualys, Inc. ( : QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions and Bugcrowd, the leader in crowdsourced security testing, today announced joint development integrations allowing joint customers a unique ability to share vulnerability data across automated web application scanning and crowdsourced bug bounty programs. Many organizations' security strategies have changed to a proactive approach, which includes both automation and human expertise to discover vulnerabilities. To reduce the escalating cost and effort of implementing multiple tools or programs, this joint integration between Bugcrowd Crowdcontrol and Qualys Cloud Platform brings together the scale and efficiency of automated web application scanning (WAS) with the expertise of the penetration-testing crowd in one simple solution. Joint customers will be able to eliminate automatically discovered vulnerabilities by Qualys WAS from their list of offered bug bounties and focus Bugcrowd programs on critical vulnerabilities that require manual testing, effectively reducing the cost of vulnerability discovery and penetration testing. The initial integration allows Bugcrowd customers who also have Qualys WAS to import vulnerability data from Qualys WAS results directly into the Bugcrowd Crowdcontrol platform and then use that data to optimize their bug bounty program scope and incentives. Further integration with the Qualys Cloud Platform will allow joint customers running a bug bounty platform on Bugcrowd to import unique vulnerabilities from Crowdcontrol into Qualys WAS and have the ability to apply one-click patches using the fully integrated Qualys Web Application Firewall (WAF). "With the move of IT to the cloud and all the digital transformation efforts underway, web apps are exploding and securing these apps is now front and center," said Sumedh Thakar, Chief Product Officer, Qualys. "By combining the automation of Qualys Web Application Scanning (WAS) and Bugcrowd's crowd sourcing platform, organizations can now cover a much larger number of applications and secure them more effectively at a lower cost." "The pace and complexity of modern application deployment requires organizations to harness both automation and on-demand crowd testing. This integration allows our customers to gain the benefits of both," said Jonathan Cran, Vice President of Product, Bugcrowd. "The integration of Bugcrowd and Qualys data means that this new approach will be easier and lower cost." The integration of Qualys WAS vulnerability data within Crowdcontrol will be available to joint customers in March, followed by the integration of Bugcrowd data into Qualys WAS and WAF in Q2 2017. About Bugcrowd The pioneer and innovator in crowdsourced security testing for the enterprise, Bugcrowd harnesses the power of more than 45,000 security researchers to surface critical software vulnerabilities and level the playing field in cybersecurity. Bugcrowd also provides a range of responsible disclosure and managed service options that allow companies to commission a customized security testing program that fits their specific requirements. Bugcrowd's proprietary vulnerability disclosure platform is deployed by Tesla Motors, Fiat-Chrysler, The Western Union Company, Pinterest, Barracuda Networks and Jet.com. Based in San Francisco, Bugcrowd is backed by Blackbird Ventures, Costanoa Ventures, Industry Ventures, Paladin Capital Group, Rally Ventures and Salesforce Ventures.

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements generally relate to future events or our future financial or operating performance. Forward-looking statements in this press release include, but are not limited to, statements related to: the growth of our business, including renewals and market share gains, adoption of our existing solutions and our new offerings to both existing and new customers; the capabilities of our platform; the expansion of our certifications and partnerships and the related benefits of such certifications and partnerships; our strategy and our business model, the scalability of our strategy, and ability to execute such strategy; our guidance for revenues, GAAP EPS and non-GAAP EPS for the first quarter and full year 2017, and our expectations for the number of weighted average diluted shares outstanding and effective income tax rate for the first quarter and full year 2017. Our expectations and beliefs regarding these matters may not materialize, and actual results in future periods are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. These risks include our ability to continue to develop platform capabilities and solutions; the ability of our platform and solutions to perform as intended; customer acceptance and purchase of our existing solutions and new solutions; real or perceived defects, errors or vulnerabilities in our products or services; our ability to retain existing customers and generate new customers; the budgeting cycles, seasonal buying patterns and length of our sales cycle; our ability to manage costs as we increase our customer base and the number of our platform solutions; the market for cloud solutions for IT security and compliance not increasing at the rate we expect; competition from other products and services; fluctuations in currency exchange rates, unexpected fluctuations in our effective tax rate on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, our ability to effectively manage our rapid growth and our ability to anticipate future market needs and opportunities; any unanticipated accounting charges; and general market, political, economic and business conditions in the United States as well as globally. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are also subject to other risks and uncertainties, including those more fully described in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 4, 2016. The forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to Qualys as of the date hereof, and Qualys disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, except as required by law. In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Qualys monitors operating measures of non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP net income per diluted share. In computing these non-GAAP financial measures, Qualys excludes the effects of stock-based compensation expense and non-recurring expenses. Qualys also monitors Adjusted EBITDA (defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, other (income) expense, net and non-recurring expenses) and free cash flow (defined as cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property and equipment, and capitalized software development costs). Estimated impact of the MSSP contract signed in Feb 2016 refers to the difference between the estimated revenue recognized under the new terms in the MSSP contract and the estimated revenue that would have been recognized without the MSSP contract, assuming an appropriate renewal rate. The percentage impact is the net benefit, only in the contract year in which it occurred. Qualys believes that these non-GAAP operating metrics help illustrate underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be masked by the effect of the income or expenses, as well as the related tax effects, that are excluded in non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per diluted share and Adjusted EBITDA. Furthermore, Qualys uses these operating measures to establish budgets and operational goals for managing its business and evaluating its performance. Qualys monitors free cash flow as a liquidity measure to provide useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the Company that, after the acquisition of property and equipment and capitalized software development costs, can be used for strategic opportunities, including investing in its business, making strategic acquisitions and strengthening the balance sheet. Qualys also believes that non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow provide additional tools for investors to use in comparing its recurring core business operating results over multiple periods with other companies in its industry. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016 excludes approximately $0.7 million of non-recurring expenses related to the remittance of payroll taxes from year 2013 through May 2016. During this same period, the Company has not excluded amounts related to other non-recurring items from non-GAAP net income per diluted share because the Company has considered such amounts to be immaterial in any given quarter during such period. We have not reconciled non-GAAP net income per diluted share guidance to GAAP net income per diluted share because we do not provide guidance on the various reconciling cash and non-cash items between GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income (i.e., stock-based compensation and non-recurring expenses). The actual dollar amount of reconciling items in the first quarter and full year 2017 is likely to have a significant impact on the Company's GAAP net income per diluted share in the first quarter and full year 2017, respectively. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP net income per diluted share guidance to the corresponding GAAP net income per diluted share is not available without unreasonable effort. In order to provide a more complete picture of recurring core operating business results, the Company's non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share include tax adjustments required to achieve the effective tax rate on a non-GAAP basis, which could differ from the GAAP effective tax rate. The Company believes the non-GAAP effective tax rate, which is 36% in 2017, is a reasonable estimate under its global operating structure. The Company intends to re-evaluate the non-GAAP effective tax rate on an annual basis. However, it may adjust this rate during the year to take into account events or trends that it believes materially impact the estimated annual rate. The non-GAAP effective tax rate could be subject to change for a number of reasons, including but not limited to, significant changes resulting from tax legislation, material changes in geographic mix of revenues and expenses and other significant events. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this press release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included with the financial statements contained in this press release. Management uses both GAAP and non-GAAP information in evaluating and operating its business internally and as such has determined that it is important to provide this information to investors.
