Continuous Monitoring

Qualys Continuous Monitoring (CM) is a next-generation cloud service that gives you the ability to identify threats and monitor unexpected changes in your network before they turn into breaches. With it, you can track what happens within your internal environment, and Internet-facing devices throughout your DMZs and cloud environments — anywhere in the world.

Continuous Monitoring brings a new approach to vulnerability management and network security, enabling you to immediately identify and proactively address potential problems such as:

  • Unexpected Hosts/OSes
  • Expiring SSL Certificates
  • Inadvertently Open Ports
  • Severe Vulnerabilities
  • Undesired

What’s different about Qualys CM?

Continuous Monitoring enables customers to have the most comprehensive and up-to-date view of their entire organization. It detects changes in your network that could be exploited and immediately notifies the IT staff responsible for the affected assets so they can take appropriate action.

Built on the world’s leading Cloud security and compliance platform, Qualys Continuous Monitoring requires no special hardware and can be set up with a few simple clicks. A user simply needs to identify the host or hosts that need to be monitored, who to alert when states change, and what that change might be. The solution complements the speed of deployment, unparalleled scalability, and accuracy of Qualys Vulnerability Management and other services in the Qualys Cloud Platform. Together, they help you identify the highest priorities and accelerate your ability to fix potential security holes before they can be breached.

Cloud Platform

Global Scalability & Manageability powered by the Qualys Cloud

As part of the award-winning Qualys Cloud Platform, Continuous Monitoring is designed specifically to be efficient and easy to use. It scales from one to a million users, from a single office to a global network.

  • Immediate deployment – no hardware to set up,
    always up-to-date
  • Global scalability – add new perimeter and internal networks anytime, throughout the world
  • Multiple, unified solutions – one console for CM, VM and more
  • Centralized management – apply alerting policies consistently across all your perimeter systems

Integrated Network Security: The power of VM, made instantly actionable with CM

Qualys Continuous Monitoring (CM) works together with Qualys Vulnerability Management (VM) to provide true proactive network security. From a single console, you can discover hosts and digital certificates, organize assets by business function or technology, and set up automated, targeted alerts – for systems anywhere in the world. The Qualys Cloud Platform keeps everything in sync, avoiding the redundancies and gaps that come with trying to glue together disparate, siloed solutions.

Global Monitoring

Hackers-Eye View of Your Perimeter –
from the Internet

To stop hackers, you have to see your perimeter the same way they do ‐ directly from the Internet. Continuous Monitoring acts as a sentinel in the cloud: constantly watching your network for changes that could leave you exposed.

Automated Monitoring of Your Global Perimeter

Continuous Monitoring efficiently tracks the systems in your global network, whether they are in one location, located in cloud environments, or spread across the globe. It monitors your critical internal IT assets such as desktops, servers and other devices.

Targeted Alerts

Fine-grained control over when to generate an alert

With Continuous Monitoring, you can tailor alerts to a wide variety of conditions so that you can watch broadly for general changes or zero in on specific circumstances.

  • Hosts & Devices – see whenever systems appear, disappear, or are running unexpected operating systems.

  • Digital Certificates – track SSL certificates used on systems to know if they are weak or self-signed, and when they’re due to expire.

  • Ports & Services – keep tabs on which network ports are open, which protocols are used, and whether they change over time.

  • Vulnerabilities on Hosts or in Applications – know when potential or confirmed vulnerabilities appear (or reappear), how severe they are, whether they can be exploited, and if patches are available.

  • Applications Installed on Perimeter Systems – find out when application software gets installed or removed from these systems.

Efficient alerts, directed to responsible IT staff

Continuous Monitoring gives you control over exactly who receives each alert, so that you can directly notify the most appropriate staff in each circumstance. This frees your security teams from the delays and burdens of waiting for scheduled scanning windows and sifting through long reports.

Immediate Insights

Visual dashboard shows you the status of your network at a glance

You can immediately see the big picture on your network with Continuous Monitoring’s visual dashboard. A quick overview and graphical representation of recent activity helps you spot anomalies. Flag important alerts or hide ones you don’t want to see. Then, find particular alerts quickly with rich interactive search, and drill into the details with a simple click.
