Qualys Cloud Platform 2.40 New Features

This release of the Qualys Cloud Platform version 2.40 includes updates and new features for Web Application Scanning, highlights as follows.

Web Application Scanning

  • “Everything” Detection Scope – A new detection scope called “Everything” is now available in the option profile.  This can be used as a quick way to test for the entire set of QIDs that WAS knows about.  Expect longer scan times when using this detection scope.
  • Unique Finding ID – A new UUID has been introduced for each WAS finding to serve as a unique ID for that detection.  The existing, numerical ID for a finding remains as well.
  • Multi-scan Slice Numbers – The slice number is now formatted so that scans are listed in sequential order when viewing the scan list and sorting by name.
