This release of the Qualys Cloud Platform 2.11 includes new features for the Qualys AssetView Service – a service that lets your company search for information across your entire environment, scaling to millions of assets for organizations of all sizes. Qualys AssetView provides search capabilities for multiple data sources in your environment, including data from: Free Inventory with Qualys Cloud Agent, optional VM or PC features of Cloud Agent, and also agentless scan sources. This feature replaces the Asset Management module in your account once enabled, and can be activated by contacting your Technical Account Manager or Technical Support.
Qualys Cloud Agent enables instant, global visibility of IT assets – even occasionally connected mobile and virtual devices, with up-to-date asset configuration data for security and compliance. A low-footprint agent installed on endpoints, Cloud Agent brings the high-performance functionality of all Qualys Cloud Platform solutions to all IT assets in the global enterprise.
This release of the Qualys Cloud Agent Platform includes several new features for improving management of the Cloud Agent including:
- New Information and Search Options in Agent Management – making it easier to find agents requiring attention.
- Agent Network and Name Identification – allowing you to identify an asset by its unique network information and track all addresses associated with an agent.
- New Capabilities for Activation Keys – allowing you to automate activation, licensed features, and dynamically tag new agents as they are registered.
