VMDR Activation for Externally Exposed Unmanaged Assets

EASM capability discovers the externally exposed assets that are unknown to you. Since such assets are not scanned by Qualys VMDR, they are classified as unmanaged assets. You can see them from the EASM tab. 

You can bring these assets to your security assessment program. To do so, activate ‘Vulnerability Management, Detection and Response (VMDR)’ on such externally exposed unmanaged assets.

Note:
- Only Superusers can activate VMDR on the externally exposed unmanaged assets. Also, VMDR can be activated only if your customer account is AGMS.
-  VMDR activation can be done for all assets, except managed assets and  Assets with IPv6 and IP 0.0.0.0 addresses.
