Qualys Gateway Service

Qualys Gateway Service (QGS) is a packaged virtual appliance developed by Qualys that provides proxy services for Qualys Cloud Agent deployments that require proxy connectivity to connect agents to the Qualys Cloud Platforms.

Qualys Gateway Service is managed using a new module user interface on the Qualys platform. From this interface, one can create, register, monitor, and manage QGS virtual appliance deployments.

The QGS virtual appliance is separate and different from the virtual scanner appliance that is used for Vulnerability Management and Policy Compliance scanning. The QGS virtual appliance provides caching and proxy services for Cloud Agent deployments. It also provides proxy services for Qualys Scanner and Qualys Network Passive Sensor.

The QGS virtual appliance provides proxy services for Cloud Agent deployments, Qualys Scanner, and Qualys Network Passive Sensor and caching service for Cloud Agent deployments.
