We have launched one centralized place for you to create connectors needed for AssetView, CloudView, a new application named “Connectors” (Read more). Thus, connector creation is now done on the connector app. You can read about other configurations you can achieve with your created connector below.

Concepts and Terminologies

Secure Infrastructure as Code (IaC)

Use the Infrastructure as Code (IaC) Security feature to secure your code (IaC) before it gets deployed in the cloud environment. Using this feature, cloud infrastructure teams can prevent misconfigurations before it really happens. 

You can trigger scans on the IaC template files and view the evaluation results in the IaC Posture tab. Learn more

Connector Specific Access for Users

You can create users and then assign a role to it to grant access as per the role you define. Depending on the permissions you assign to the role, you could categorize the users with all privileges or read-only privileges. You could define the scope for users and configure the access to a specific connector or group of connectors. Learn more

Configuring Alerts

Create rules to get alerts to monitor changes or significant findings on control evaluations for your attention and intervention.

Configure Rule-based Alerts

Enabling Remediation

Enable remediation for your connectors and fix the resource misconfigurations by triggering remediation of cloud resources.

Remediating Cloud Misconfigurations

Customizable Dynamic Dashboards

Dashboards help you visualize your cloud resources, evaluation of your cloud resources, see your threat exposure, leverage saved searches, and fix resource misconfigurations quickly.

We have integrated Unified Dashboard (UD) with CloudView. UD brings information from all Qualys applications into a single place for visualization. UD provides a powerful new dashboarding framework along with platform service that will be consumed and used by all other products to enhance the existing dashboard capabilities.

You can use the default CloudView dashboard provided by Qualys or easily configure widgets to pull information from other modules/applications and add them to your dashboard. You can also add as many dashboards as you like to customize your CloudView view.
