How it works

Sensors provide continuous visibility

On premises, at endpoints, on mobile, in containers or in the cloud, Qualys Cloud Platform sensors are always on, giving you continuous 2-second visibility of all your IT assets. Remotely deployable, centrally managed and self-updating, the sensors come as physical or virtual appliances, or lightweight agents.

All your data analyzed in real time

Qualys Cloud Platform provides an end-to-end solution, allowing you to avoid the cost and complexities that come with managing multiple security vendors. Qualys Cloud Platform automatically gathers and analyzes IT, security, and compliance data in a scalable, state-of-the-art backend. Provisioning any of Qualys’ natively integrated security and compliance apps - twenty and counting - is as easy as checking a box.

Respond to threats immediately

With our Cloud Agent technology, there’s no need to schedule scan windows or manage credentials for scanning. What’s more, our Continuous Monitoring service lets you proactively address potential threats. Whenever new vulnerabilities and threats, attacks or suspicious activities appear, real-time alerts notify you immediately so you can take action – whether that’s globally deploying the most relevant superseding patch with a single click, quarantining vulnerable assets or files, uninstalling software, killing process and network connections, and much more.

Qualys Cloud Platform is accessible directly in the browser, no plugins necessary. And with a powerful dashboard, security and compliance pros and managers get a complete and continuously updated view of all of their IT assets — from a single-pane-of-glass interface.

It’s a fully customizable dashboard that lets you see the big picture, drill down into details, and generate reports for teammates and auditors. Its intuitive and easy-to-build dynamic dashboards aggregate and correlate all of your IT, security and compliance data in one place from all the various Qualys Cloud Apps. With its powerful Elasticsearch clusters, you can now search for any asset – including on-premises, endpoint and cloud assets – with 2-second visibility.
