See results in one place, in seconds

Qualys Community Edition provides a complete, continuously updated, and instant view of monitored IT assets and web apps from a single-pane-of-glass interface.

  • The customizable control panel lets you see the big picture, drill down into details, and generate reports.

  • Intuitive and easy-to-build dynamic dashboards aggregate and correlate IT security and compliance data from various Qualys Cloud Apps in one place.

  • Unlimited network mapping lets you keep track of internal and external assets, while monitoring for rogue devices and unwanted hosts.

Scan web applications

Web apps are a preferred vector for data breaches because they often contain vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. Since they’re usually linked to back to the hosting web server, breached web apps offer hackers a direct path to corporate data. Qualys Community Edition gives you protection in this area with Web Application Scanning for one web app URL.

  • Unlimited vulnerability scanning for one application URL

  • Assessments for the entirety of the OWASP Top 10 Most Critical Web Application Security Risks, including cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection and sensitive data exposure
