How is Qualys VM able to assess machines within rackspace? Can it talk to rackspace's API? Is there a qualys appliance than works within rackspace?
Our current supported virtual platforms are below. If none of these scanners are sufficient, we can introduce a feature request to provide the type of virtual scanner or physical scanner you need.
Qualys... you there?
Hello. Is a case with support or your TAM lodged?
In general we can interact with third party APIs, but require the support of the third party to allow us to scan. Scanning without permission generally violates this agreement with the terms of service with the third party. We have not received automatic approval from every vendor, but we do have an agreement with Amazon (reference QualysGuard Solutions for Amazon EC2 and VPC | Qualys, Inc.) under certain conditions. It is possible to use a virtual image at Rackspace, but whether scanning will require permissions must be discussed with the third party.
It's not the scanning (externally) of RS that I'm referring to, it's the ability (or inability) to introduce a Qualys scanner into a RS environment. (since RS relies on openstack whereas Qualys only has Vsphere, esxi, amazon, etc virtual images)
