Qualys Cloud Inventory Highlights

Comprehensive visibility

When organizations start moving workloads to public clouds they encounter security and compliance challenges they may not have foreseen. Atop the list is a lack of visibility, since you can’t protect what you don’t know is there. Qualys Cloud Inventory continuously discovers resources in your public cloud deployments and gives you a “single-pane-of-glass” view across all of them from a central control panel. It also aggregates information about assets and resources from one or multiple cloud platforms. That way, you can clearly see all of your instances, services, and supporting resources across every public cloud account. Once you have this comprehensive inventory, you can begin to fulfill your part in the “shared responsibility” security model under which all public cloud providers operate.

Control of ephemeral environments

Organizations must contend with the elastic and fast-changing nature of cloud environments, as instances get spun up and down constantly. To assess threat impact, security teams must grasp the topography of their public cloud deployments, as well as the relationship and interactions between resources. Qualys Cloud Inventory gives you both updated and historical views of your inventory, as well as the ability to understand the relationships of your public cloud assets and resources across different dimensions. These include Accounts, location, and associated services such as security groups and network interfaces.

Easy deployment

With Qualys Cloud Inventory, you can get set up in minutes. There’s no agent to deploy, so it’s easy to configure. Cloud connectors use APIs available from your cloud provider to aggregate data from your accounts in a way that doesn’t interfere with your workloads. The inventory is built instantly with detailed metadata and relationship mapping. Analysis begins as soon as data flows in.

Continuous compliance assessments

After you get a full inventory of your cloud assets and resources with Qualys Cloud Inventory, you can then use Qualys Cloud Security Assessment (CSA) to continuously assess these assets and resources for misconfigurations and for non-standard deployments that could be easily exploited.

Discover and inventory assets

Qualys Cloud Inventory continuously discovers and tracks assets and resources such as instances and virtual machines, storage buckets, databases, security groups, ACLs, ELBs, and users, across all regions, multiple accounts and multiple cloud platforms. You can view all this information in one central place.

  • Provides a quick overview of inventory via pre-built dashboards, and lets you personalize or build your own with custom widgets

  • Collects rich metadata for every resource and shows associations across resources, so you can understand scenarios such as which security groups are potentially public and unprotected, and to which assets they are related

  • Charts trending changes to the environment

  • Integrates with major cloud providers, including AWS, Azure, and Google

Do comprehensive, multi-faceted searches

You can use Qualys Cloud Inventory’s fast and powerful search engine to discover assets and their threat posture based on their metadata and relationships. The search engine finds leaky storage buckets, ungoverned instance spin-ups, and instances with platform vulnerabilities. You can also do complex lookups to identify assets that are at greater risk of attack, such as those with high-severity vulnerabilities, those that exist in the edge rather than inside the DMZ, or those exposed to the outside world through a security group with an open rule. Qualys Cloud Inventory’s search engine lets you:

  • Easily craft queries with multiple variables using an intuitive query syntax and a type-ahead feature

  • Use smart filters for quick lookup and save search queries

  • Download search results in various formats such as CSV and PDF

  • Create interactive dashboard widgets from queries that are interesting or often used
