This integration combines Lumeta’s index of your network with Qualys to provide your security policy management software with a comprehensive set of network data. The two solutions work together to eliminate gaps in vulnerability coverage and improve your organization's security posture.
The Qualys integration provides Qualys customers with a way to ensure that the Qualys agent is installed comprehensively on all network devices in a particular segment (or multiple segments) as intended. The integration reconciles Qualys findings with Lumeta findings and insodoing, uncovers:
- Assets lacking the Qualys agent, which show up in Lumeta-only dashboard widgets and in the Qualys console.
- Assets to which visibility is blocked, which show up in Qualys-only dashboards widgets and in the Qualys console.
- Assets with comprehensive management, which show up in both Qualys and Lumeta dashboards widgets and in the Qualys console. A Qualys user with read-only permissions for the following parameters will be able to configure and use this integration:
- Queries & Reports
- Software Manager
- System Tree Access
Widgets on Lumeta's Vulnerability Management dashboard are populated using a combination of IPs indexed by Lumeta and IPs from the qualys_scanned_ips table and the qualys_subscribed_ips table, as follows:
IPs Unmanaged by Qualys
IPs indexed by Lumeta yet unmanaged by Qualys
(aka Lumeta-Indexed - Qualys-Subscribed table on Lumeta)
IPs Unmanaged by Lumeta
IPs managed by Qualys yet not indexed by Lumeta
(aka Qualys-Scanned/Managed table on Lumeta - Lumeta-Indexed)
IPs both indexed by Lumeta and in Qualys managed list
(aka Intersection of Lumeta-Indexed and Qualys-Scanned/Managed table on Lumeta)
