Is there a way to build a new server Windows / Linux and from the end of the build automatically get the Qualys server to scan it for vulnerabilities and report back to the server and/or Qualys?
I think this is the right direction but I need perl on every single server?
I am not sure why you would want want to make this part of the system build.
Clients who are performing pre "go-live" testing generally have developed a semi-automated process of scanning during the change control part of adding a system or application to the network.
The API calls you list could be called be a simple web application (written locally) the user self enters the IP in a window and the results are then sent back to them for review.
