Opt-In Vulnerability Management Asset Housekeeping Subscription Support Options
Please indulge me and permit me to highlight two subscription features released in June and November 2016 respectively. These features made my life as a vulnerability management administrator so much easier, and they can do the same for you too!
To have the above features enabled on your subscription, please contact your Technical Account Manager or Contact Support - Technical Assistance Inquiry Form | Qualys, Inc..
Customer Use within Subscription
- Enable Close Vulnerabilities on Dead Hosts: Option profile setting to close vulns/tickets when the host is not found alive after a set number of times. For example: If you scan weekly, you may wish to set the value to 12 (weeks); or if you scan monthly. you may wish to set the value to 3 (months); to maintain vulnerability tickets for 90 days/3 months. Beyond that time, the data is essentially stale, obsolete, and/or orphaned.
- Enable Purge old host data when OS is changed: Option profile setting to purge old host data when we detect a major change in host OS vendor. For example: Windows to Linux, Mac OSX to Windows, etc.
