Can we do Load Balancing between Physical & Virtual Scanner ?
It is possible to use both virtual and physical scanners for a single vulnerability scan. This can be achieved in multiple ways, using Asset Tags, Assets Groups, or just selecting a list of scanners when creating your scan.
When you run a VM scan using the "Scanning Appliance" option you can define which scanners you wish to use. The Qualys platform will slice up the scan job and as a scanner becomes available or has the resource it will take part of the scan job.
Once completed the platform takes care of taking all the different slices and putting them together as a single scan. You can find more information on settings this up in the Scanning Strategies and Best Practices self-paced course.
