Qualys Security Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) has been enhanced with new features for questionnaire templates, which enable customers to choose questions that they want to include in their campaigns.
The new Question Bank option in the SAQ Template Editor provides users with a repository of out-of-the-box questions. Qualys SAQ is a licensed user of 2018 Shared Assessments Standardized Information Gathering (SIG) Questionnaire. The Question Bank includes all the questions from the 2018 SIG Questionnaire that can be picked and added to custom templates. This simplifies the process of creating or editing custom templates for internal as well as external vendor assessments.
Additionally, the existing Library option has been enhanced to allow users to browse thru all the existing templates and choose only the required questions to be added to the custom templates. For example, SAQ provides 30+ out-of-the-box templates for NIST 800:53. Now, users can browse across all the 30+ templates and create their own custom template with only those questions that are required for their assessments.
