Get Started with Qualys Flow

Qualys Flow is a low-code/no-code cloud management platform that can help you to create customized workflows named QFlows within a few clicks.  

A QFlow is a logical flow of events, data, and actions to get a specific output like an insight, a compliance check, a report, remediation, or an action. Qualys Flow helps in the automation of the cloud management process. You can build a QFlow using different nodes. Nodes are building blocks of a QFlow. Each node is used to perform a specific function such as collect AWS Inventory, AWS  Action, data formatting etc. You can choose the specific node to perform the desired function.
