Dashboard and Drill-down Reporting in Policy Compliance

With the release of the new QualysGuard UI, Policy Compliance can now stand alone as it own module within QualysGuard.  This focused approach to modules in the new UI makes it easier to consolidate compliance reporting and provide additional capabilities specific to Policy Compliance.  A perfect example of this is the new Dashboard and Policy Summary Report released in QualysGuard 6.22.

Policy Compliance Dashboard

By enabling the new UI in QualysGuard 6.22, Policy Compliance gets its own dedicated Dashboard.


This new dashboard summarizes the compliance status across all policies in the subscription in one single view, identifying your top failing technologies that need attention.  In addition, view and access your last scans, upcoming scheduled scans, and latest reports directly from the dashboard.  For more information, drill down into your top failing and passing policies, which opens the new Policy Summary Report.

Policy Summary Report

The new UI also exposes a new tab under Reports called Policy Summary.  This new tab provides a summary of your policy without running template based reports, as required in previous versions of Policy Compliance.  To see the summary, simply select a policy and a trend duration.


This new summary report provides trending of your pass/fail status, controls, and hosts by policy.  In addition, drill down into your top failing hosts and controls, which opens an interactive report with detailed results.

These new features in QualysGuard 6.22 enhance the reporting capabilities of Policy Compliance and provide a global view of compliance.  To try these new features, simply switch over to the new UI in your subscription.  To see a demo of these new features, please visit the Dashboard video in the QualysGuard Policy Compliance Video Series.
