Use Cases and Deployment Scope

It is being used both across the whole organization, as well as at the department level. It is the platform used. It is used mainly for vulnerability scanning endpoints on the network, and then remediating those vulnerabilities. It is also used by some do do reporting and tracking of vulnerabilities. Internally, we mainly use it to scan individual computers, and well as groups of computers within a certain department. With regards to the vulnerabilities, we can determine if patching is needed on the endpoints.

It addresses the business problem of helping to secure networks from intrusions and vulnerabilities. It helps IT see what computers on the network has vulnerabilities, and offers them an opportunity to remediate those vulnerabilities.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Qualys as the main vulnerability scanner. It is used to scan the on-premise devices such as servers, switches, etc.
We have several scanners deployed in different locations in order to cover all sites, and scheduled scans that run on a periodic basis.
Qualys helps us to prioritize the mitigation, it includes not only OS patches, but also 3rd party software.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We used the Qualys API and python to create rolling scheduled scans of every 2 weeks for every network for our organization. We first focused on critical and high vulnerabilities with direction to remediate or remove the system within 30 days. We saw a drastic reduction in number of attacks and compromises for systems across the enterprise.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We used Qualysguard to automate testing of our environment for vulnerabilities. We used several groups to run the testing some with longer and more extensive tests. Mostly this was done in two phases, once before a resource was deployed for use and then several times after over duration to ensure any vulnerabilities were caught.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

At my current organization, Qualysguard is primarily used for discovery of assets and verification of secure configuration/patching by our security team. Our team is also assessing Qualysguard WAS to build into our secure development practices.

At my previous organization, we provided self-service capability for our engineers designing/building our products to perform their own infrastructure scans to identify security configuration flaws as early in the build process as possible. We also used Qualysguard for discovery of assets and verification of secure configuration/patching.

In both organizations, Qualysguard has added a ton of value.
