Continuous discovery of known and unknown assets

Asset Inventory automatically discovers and classifies assets using both agent and agentless methods. It works in conjunction with the Qualys Cloud Platform and Qualys sensors (scanners, cloud connectors, container sensors, cloud agents, passive sensors and APIs) to continuously discover assets. Other characteristics of Qualys’ automated discovery include:

  • Flexible: Known and unknown asset tracking that covers both managed and unmanaged devices
  • Comprehensive collection methods: Covers all bases. Uses both agentless and agent-based collection for active and passive scanning of your assets
  • Automated: Assets are discovered automatically. Quickly setup lightweight all-purpose Cloud Agents for a deep view of assets
  • Non-intrusive: Runs in the background with no impact to the network and applications
  • Continuous: Up-to-date and continuous inventory collection including changes and transient devices
  • Indexed: All data collected is indexed for quick retrieval
  • Integrated: Data collected is available for all Qualys Security and Compliance Cloud Apps
  • Discovered data includes:
    • Physical and virtual appliances in on-premises environments
    • Mobility assets
    • Cloud IaaS and PaaS instances in cloud, including containers
    • IoT and OT devices
    • Hardware and software data discovery: collected information includes listing system and hardware details, running services, open ports, installed software and user accounts
  • Upgrade to get advanced details including: Hardware and software license and lifecycle tracking

Clean, reliable data

Automated normalization and classification of asset data maps raw asset data to Qualys product catalog to obtain clean and reliable data. The product catalog is continuously curated with a focus on completeness, relevance and data quality. This process transforms the global IT asset inventory into multidimensional and structured information, for better business decision-making.

  • Normalization includes standardizing of asset data in your environment for every manufacturer name, product name, model, software version and much more. The normalized data provides clean and reliable data for accurate decision making

  • Automatic classification of all software which separates applications from system software, such as OS patches and drivers. Every asset is classified in meaningful, functional categories based on hardware and software

  • Enrichment automatically populates your IT asset inventory with asset metadata that can’t be discovered otherwise, such as hardware and software product release dates, end-of-life dates, license categories, and more. These attributes provide IT organizations with multiple lenses that expand asset visibility in new, meaningful ways

Detailed asset information

Qualys gives you deep visibility into the assets granting you a detailed, multidimensional view of each one that encompasses both its IT and security data. You can flag issues such as configuration problems, security risks, IT policy violations and regulatory non-compliance with an asset profile that includes a wealth of data such as:

  • Hardware specs

  • Installed software, including applications, OS, drivers, utilities and plug-ins

  • Network connections

UPGRADE

Advanced asset information

Automatically populate your IT asset inventory with asset metadata that can’t be discovered otherwise, such as hardware and software product release dates, end-of-life dates, license categories, and more. This advanced metadata provides meaningful insights IT needs to:

  • Accurately plan for hardware refreshes or software upgrades and replacement cycles

  • Keep you in compliance in regulated environments by providing information on end-of-life software such as databases that must be upgraded to meet security-related regulatory standards

  • Plan for upgrades by seeing what devices and software are at end-of-life or will be at end-of-life soon

  • Verify compliance with commercial and open source licenses

UPGRADE

Tag your assets

Not all assets carry the same weight within your organization. Asset Inventory lets you tag your assets by putting relevant labels on them and organizing them in a multitude of ways. For example, you can specify which assets fall within the scope of PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliance.

  • Supports tagging of assets for easy labeling and identification, instantly adding business context to your inventory

  • Gives you the ability to apply tags manually or configure rules and parameters for automatic tagging

  • Supports creating any kind or number of hierarchies and giving assets as many tags as you want

  • Calculates criticality based on an asset’s aggregated and consolidated system, security, and compliance data, as well as established hierarchies and priorities

  • In addition, Qualys Asset Inventory attribute tags are available inside other Qualys cloud apps. This enables you to discover unmanaged assets that are vulnerable, or EoL devices that are non-compliant etc

UPGRADE

CMDB integration

IT asset inventory solutions must link up with your CMDB (configuration management database) and continuously feed it fresh, detailed data. That way, the CMDB can better illustrate and map the relationships, connections, hierarchies and dependencies among IT assets. The Qualys CMDB Sync app for ServiceNow CMDB, syncs information about assets Qualys discovers into ServiceNow.

  • Allows IT departments to be more effective at a variety of critical tasks, such as change management, service requests, incident response, system repair and impact analysis

  • Synchronization of assets that are continuously discovered and inventoried. Eliminates the need for IT staffers to manually update the CMDB with granular system, security and compliance data on new and changed assets across an IT environment

  • Users can configure filters based on Qualys tags to select a group of assets that can be synchronized

  • Supports flexible configuration for multiple Qualys accounts/API sources and synchronization schedules

  • Features preconfigured table transform maps for open ports, assets, network interfaces, software, processors and volumes, as well as preconfigured reports

  • Asset information can be staged for user approval before being written to the CMDB
