I am relatiively new to Qualys, until recently our scanning has been focused on Linux and Windows servers in our datacenters however, at management request I am now scanning client workstations and laptops in our HQ and field locations as well.  I've created asset groups for the client locations but I am wondering if it makes sense to create a new search list and option profiles for clients rather than using the one created by my predecessor for the servers. 


I am looking for any suggestions or input on best practices for managing scanning on a large population of workstation clients (~7,000), all input is appreciated.
