Product Description

The QualysGuard Virtual Scanner Appliance extends the reach of the QualysGuard Cloud Platform's integrated suite of security and compliance SaaS applications into the internal networks of both Amazon VPC and classic EC2. The virtual scanner appliance brings the highly-automated QualysGuard Vulnerability Management, Policy Compliance, and Web Application Scanning services deep into the Amazon infrastructure so that your VPC and EC2 Instances can be assessed at close range from trusted devices under your control and protected by your EC2/VPC Security Groups. Customers configure and operate all of the scanner's security services from their QualysGuard (SaaS) account via a secure web interface or API. Each instance of the QualysGuard Virtual Scanner Appliance must be associated with a valid QualysGuard (SaaS) subscription in order to function. It is available for use by licensed Qualys customers and trial users. IMPORTANT NOTE: For pre-authorized vulnerability scanning with Amazon API-connected workflows and Instance ID-based asset tracking and targeting, you should instead deploy the "Pre-authorized Scanning" virtual scanner AMI, also available in AWS Marketplace. NOTE: At this time, this product instance must be launched using the "Launch with EC2 Console" option. Once you click the "Continue" button and arrive at the "Launch with EC2 Console" tab, follow the "Installation Instructions" near the bottom of the page.

Usage Instructions

This AMI is only functional when associated with a subscription to the QualysGuard (SaaS) service.

A scanner Personalization Code, obtained from your QualysGuard subscription, must be input as a property during the launch of your new instance.

No direct user interaction with this QualysGuard Virtual Scanner Appliance is required or possible. The scanner communicates outbound to the QualysGuard Cloud Platform via an SSL-encrypted channel on port 443. All functionality is managed from your QualyGuard (SaaS) account after scanner deployment.
