A new release of the Qualys Cloud Platform (AssetView 2.15, Cloud Agent Platform 1.6.0) includes several new features for AssetView and support for additional operating systems for Cloud Agent.
A new release of the Qualys Cloud Suite, version 8.8, is targeted for release in July and includes updates for usability and functionality across the platform as well as Vulnerability Management and Policy Compliance.
Cloud Platform: Asset Search has been improved making it easier to find, report and take actions on assets via the Asset Search Report. Several improvements to enforce security levels for Windows authentication were added, along with new options for scanner replacement, IPv6 Configuration, and stored data retention.
Vulnerability Management: Several exciting new features are available in VM in this release including CVSS version 3 and the ability to close vulnerabilities for “dead hosts” following a scan. Additional attributes are now available when downloading KnowledgeBase and in Vulnerability Notifications.
Policy Compliance: We are continuing the expansion of application technology assessment with the addition of Oracle WebLogic, IBM HTTP Server 8, IBM WebSphere 8, and assessment for Checkpoint Firewall. Improvements have been made to Exception Management, and it’s now easier to associate Cloud Agent assets with Policies. We’ve also included several improvements to the User Defined Controls and released the new Windows Group Membership UDC.
Qualys’ library of built-in policies makes it easy to comply with commonly adhered to security standards and regulations. Qualys provides a wide range of policies, including many that have been certified by CIS as well as ones based on security guidelines from vendors such as Microsoft and VMware.
In order to keep up with the latest changes in security control requirements and new technologies, Qualys publishes new content to the Policy Library monthly.
Last year, Qualys released our powerful new solution, AssetView and began activating the service on request during the initial deployment.
The new search and dashboard features have been very well received, and we are in the final phases of activating the service in most customers’ accounts! Over the coming weeks we will be enabling this service in your account which will replace the Asset Management module.
No action is required on your part. Once completed, you will see the AssetView module in your account and you can begin using the ElasticSearch and Dashboards immediately.
A new release of Qualys Cloud Platform version 2.12 is scheduled to be released soon. This release adds the ability to set the default landing page for all modules across the platform.
Change Default Landing Page – You can now set the default home page for modules across the platform within each user’s preferences. Previously, this capability was only available in the VM and PC modules.
The release is scheduled for release in April 2016 to all public platforms. Platform release dates will be published on the Qualys Status page when available.
This new release of the Qualys Cloud Suite, version 8.7, includes updates for usability and functionality across the platform as well as Vulnerability Management and Policy Compliance. This release is scheduled to go live in March and release dates for each platform will be published on the Qualys Status page when finalized.
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.
