Continuous discovery of known and unknown assets

Global AssetView 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

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

  • User information and context

  • Services, file systems, running processes

  • Virtualized environment details, such as the constant proliferation of internal and external images

  • Geographic location and time zone

Search any asset in seconds!

Has a powerful search engine that lets you craft simple or advanced queries combining multiple asset criteria returning results instantly, so you can find out in 2 seconds:

  • How many unmanaged devices are in my environment?

  • How many IoT devices are in my environment?

  • How many servers are in my environment, and what servers are running an OS that its vendor recently stopped supporting?

  • How many databases are running in my data centers?

  • Which IT assets have a particular piece of software installed?

  • How many Lenovo laptops running the latest version of Windows 10 and located in my India office have a particular vulnerability?

Tag your assets

Not all assets carry the same weight within your organization. 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

  • Global AssetView attribute tags are available for use in other Qualys cloud apps. This enables you to discover unmanaged assets that are vulnerable, or EoL devices that are non-compliant, etc.
