Integration with Microsoft Azure
Our Microsoft partnership lets you use the Qualys Cloud Platform to gain a continuous, integrated view of the security and compliance posture of your Azure instances along with all other IT environments.
Qualys' native integration with Azure allows you to:
Identify, classify and monitor assets and vulnerabilities
Prioritize their remediation
Comply with internal and external policies
Automatically find and eradicate malware infections on your websites
Virtual Scanner Appliance
The Virtual Scanner Appliance for Azure, available in Azure Marketplace, enables Qualys scanning of Azure virtual machines. It provides the same capabilities as our regular scanner appliance and supports all Azure commercial regions and a selection of compute instance sizes.
The virtual scanner appliance for Azure is a stateless resource which acts as an extension of the Qualys Cloud Platform and is not a separately managed entity.
Cloud Agents with Azure Security Center
Azure Security Center – a unified security management and monitoring console – now detects Azure virtual machines and deploys the lightweight Qualys Cloud Agents in bulk to them.
The agents gather vulnerability data and send it to the Qualys Cloud Platform, which in turn, provides vulnerability and system health monitoring data back to Azure Security Center.
