Patch release of Qualys Cloud Platform, version 8.15.2, includes new support for Apache instance auto-discovery in Qualys Policy Compliance.
- Apache Instance Auto-Discovery – This new feature in Qualys PC enables automatic discovery of Apache during compliance scans. Once one or more apache instances are discovered, the required authentication records are automatically created. We’ve also simplified authentication records for Apache allowing multiple instances to share a single authentication record. In cases where multiple Apache instances are found, users no longer need to provide separate authentication records for each instance.
This new patch release of the Qualys Cloud Platform, version 8.15.1, includes updates to Qualys Vulnerability Management.
- IP Update Handling for Agents – External IP address for Agents will no longer overwrite previous internal IP address when an internal address is not available during inventory data collection. The previous internal IP will remain as the Agent’s IP until the Agent recollects inventory data.
For more details about the above feature – please review the release notes. Release notes will be posted as soon as they are available on the Qualys Cloud Platform Release Notes page.
Platform release dates will be published on the Qualys Status page when available.
