  1. Not checked in at an X interval period of time 
  2. Errors. 
  3. Pending Activations
  4. Config-Profile Assignment
  5. Host in your subscription via IP-tracking which have the agent installed but are not reporting to your subscription!
  6. Agent Version Rollout 
  7. See Clearly the agent counts in Public Cloud Vs On-Premium Assets.

  8. Clearly, identify assets that have not checked in for more than 30Days.

  9. Last Activity - the timestamp of agent activity for manifest download, configuration profile download, agent upgrade installer download (if enabled), and inventory scan upload

  10. Last Checked In - the timestamp of all activity from Last Activity plus vulnerability management and policy compliance scan uploads

 

How do you configure the dashboard?

Benefits of Cloud Agent

 

How can Qualys Cloud Agent help you to quickly detect and remediate all in one single solution?  #AgentStackConsolidation

 

The benefits of the Qualys Cloud Agent over Authenticated Scanning:

  • Continuously monitor assets for the latest Operating System, Application, and Certificate vulnerabilities

  • Track missing critical patches on each device in real time

  • Patch and remediate systems no matter where they reside in the world with our new revolutionary Qualys Patch Management 
  • No credential / Authentication record management or complex firewall profiles needed—only requires outbound encrypted communications over a single port to the Qualys Cloud Platform

  • Combine network scans with Cloud Agents for devices where it is not practical to install agents—firewalls, routers, etc.

 

Qualys Cloud Agents brings the new age of continuous monitoring capabilities to your Vulnerability Management program. This eliminates the need for establishing scanning windows, managing credential manually or integrations with credential vaults for systems, as well as the need to actually know where a particular asset resides. "Consolidate your security stack with the Qualys Cloud Agent!" #AgentStackConsolidation

WARNING: Read Before Downloading

Dashboard and Widget JSON files are not interchangeable between application dashboards. AssetView JSON files may only be used in AssetView and Vulnerability Management JSON files may only be used in Vulnerability Management. If you make a mistake and import a JSON file from one application into the other, you must contact Qualys Support to have the error corrected in the database for your subscription. Again, there is no way to reverse this mistake within the UI, it must be done in the database.
