Qualys VMDR for Mobile Devices

Extending the Power of VMDR to Mobile Devices

for Mobile Devices

Manage the security of your Android and iOS/iPadOS devices across the enterprise

As we move to a mobile-first world where mobile devices connect to the network, enterprises face a new set of security challenges and risks.

Qualys' all-in-one Vulnerability Management, Detection, and Response (VMDR) solution extends its power to mobile devices. It provides in-depth inventory of mobile devices and their data, real-time vulnerability and misconfiguration detection, and built-in remediation with patch orchestration for all Android and iOS/iPadOS devices across the enterprise.

An end-to-end solution for mobile device security

  • Inventory and normalize all Android and iOS/iPadOS device data, including OS version, apps installed, CA certificates, system information, etc.
  • Check for misconfiguration issues, including critical settings like geolocation, activation lock, Bluetooth status, etc.
  • Detect vulnerable devices, with outdated, rooted, or jailbroken OSs, or apps with critical vulnerabilities.
  • Stop risky behavior by detecting devices connected to unsecured WiFi hotspots, etc.
  • Take "over-the-air" remediation action like locking a user's screen, resetting a device, removing or updating an app, etc.

Built-in Workflow for Mobile Device Protection

Discover, assess, prioritize, and remediate vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in real time, across mobile devices — all from a single solution.


Comprehensive Mobile Device and App Inventory

Get a holistic view of all Android, iOS/iPadOS devices and installed apps across your enterprise. Enriched inventory provides in-depth details on hundreds of mobile data points such as device type, OS version, installed apps, EOL status, device location, CA certificates, and more.

Continuous Vulnerability Assessment

Qualys’ lightweight Cloud Agent provides real-time visibility and assessment of device, OS, apps, and network vulnerabilities using the industry’s most comprehensive signature database. Qualys automatically correlates vulnerabilities with the appropriate app versions eliminating the time required to research and map weaknesses.

Real-time Misconfiguration Monitoring

Expand your vulnerability management program by continuously monitoring critical mobile device configurations as recommended by the NSA and CIS best practices to ensure continuous security (available Q2 2021).

Built-in Response and Patch Orchestration

Remediate and take action on all at-risk mobile devices simultaneously, using over-the-air, out-of-the-box controls to uninstall or update vulnerable apps, alert users, reset or lock devices, change passcodes, and more. Additionally, Qualys provides orchestration for responses such as deploying updated app versions from the Google Play Store or uninstalling vulnerable apps to reduce the time to remediation.
