Qualys Cloud Agent extends your security throughout your global enterprise. These lightweight agents (3MB) are remotely deployable, centrally managed, self-updating and consume very little CPU resource (5% at peak to less than 2% in normal operation). They collect the data and automatically beam it up to the Qualys Cloud Platform, which has the computing power to continuously analyze and correlate the information in order to help you identify threats and eliminate vulnerabilities.

Additionally, using the Qualys asset tagging solution, assets with deployed agents can automatically or manually provide attribute updates to the Qualys Cloud Platform such as the asset group, business owner, technical owner and criticality of the device.

Qualys AssetView

Qualys AssetView, an asset inventory service, is a centralized solution for managing your assets. IT or security administrators can deploy the Cloud Agent on their IT assets on a global scale, including on-premise systems, cloud-based servers or mobile endpoints.

The inventory service allows IT professionals to search millions of assets in a matter of seconds!

Once Qualys Cloud Agents are installed the following additional capabilities can be turned on instantly per IT asset:

Qualys Vulnerability Management with the Cloud Agent brings a revolutionary new way to continuously monitor assets for the latest Operating System, Application and Certificate vulnerabilities as well as to track the missing critical patches on each device in real time.

This eliminates the need for establishing scanning windows or integrations with credential vaults for systems, as well as the need to actually know where a particular asset resides.

Qualys users can combine network scans with Cloud Agents for devices such as firewalls, routers etc. where it is not practical to install agents.

Customers can also leverage the Qualys Continuous Monitoring (CM) solution to take this real-time data and turn it into instant alerts.

In future releases, Qualys will provide Indication of Compromise (IOC) detection capabilities via the Cloud Agent.

Cloud Agent for



The Cloud Agent turns Qualys’ Policy Compliance offering into a real-time solution and extends it to endpoints, which until now could not be performed by traditional network scanning solutions.

This now allows customers to continuously evaluate all relevant assets against standards and benchmarks such as PCI DSS, CIS, ISO and HIPAA and many others.

In future releases, Qualys will provide File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) and Policy Enforcement (PE) capabilities via the Cloud Agent.

Cloud Agent for



Qualys Cloud Agent architecture greatly simplifies asset discovery and tracking as well as security and compliance monitoring in highly dynamic cloud environment like Amazon EC2 and Microsoft Azure since it gives customers the ability to embed the agent into the master images of their cloud servers.

As soon as a new instance is created from the master image, it automatically activates the agent, which instantly registers, and tracks the security and compliance of each and every instance eliminating the need to implement a separate discovery mechanism or to build automation around spawning new scanners to scan the new instances.
