Software-as-a-Service SaaS Solution................................................................................................ The prospect of malfeasance via a network has spurred considerable innovation in network security. Virtually all industry analysts agree that network security should be a product of multiple interventions virus detection, firewalls, and vulnerability management.

Most analysts also agree that vulnerability management is a critical intervention without which virus detection and firewalls may offer a false sense of security.

One leading analyst wrote Security demands will drive a new focus on highly proactive vulnerability management. Near-continuous scanning will rapidly become a standard enterprise requirement as security administrators struggle to stay ahead of vulnerabilities that are introduced by software vendors, as well as configuration errors committed by internal personnel. Vulnerability Management Solution Vulnerabilities are weaknesses in process, administration, or technology that can be exploited to compromise your IT security.

Vulnerability Assessment, a key element of Vulnerability Management, is a preemptive attempt to find such vulnerabilities and to eliminate or mitigate them before they can be exploited. Vulnerability Management is broader than Vulnerability Assessment.

At a minimum, it is a process that involves discovery of all systems attached to a network, vulnerability identification and analysis of all or portions of the discovered network, reporting of findings, remedy of weaknesses, and confirmation that remedies or workarounds have been applied. Vulnerability Management is a continuous process. Any changes to policies or network configurations will inevitably create new weaknesses.

And, even in the event of no change, new vulnerabilities are being uncovered daily, and must be acted upon to maintain a high level of security. Can Be Deployed Immediately A service-based solution involves a trusted third-party as opposed to acquiring, installing, supporting, and maintaining a product-based solution.

QualysGuard is a service-based vulnerability management and policy compliance solution.

It enables distributed scanning for all locations. It delivers immediate updates for new threats. It results in highest accuracy of scans. And it eliminates software installation and maintenance burdens. Security Operations Centers Our Security Operations Centers SOCs at remote locations provide secure storage and processing of vulnerability data on an n-tiered architecture of load-balanced application servers.

All computers and racked equipment are isolated from other systems in a locked vault. Internet Scanners Our Internet scanners carry out perimeter scanning for customers. These scanners are located in various worldwide locations, and they communicate with our SOCs through secure SSL links. These remote scanners begin by building an inventory of protocols found on each machine undergoing an audit.

After discovering the protocols, the scanner detects which ports are attached to services, such as Web servers, databases, and e-mail servers. At that point, the scanners initiate an inference-based assessment, based on target hosts.

Scanner Appliances To map domains and scan IPs behind the firewall, QualysGuard Scanner Appliances are installed by customers, in a distributed manner, for global enterprise scanning. These are client-side, plugin devices that gather security audit data inside the firewall, and provide secure communications with our SOCs.

These appliances use a hardened operating-system kernel designed to prevent any attacks. In addition, they contain no services or daemons that are exposed to the network. These devices poll the SOCs for software updates and new vulnerability signatures, and process job requests.

They do not retain scan results; instead, the results are securely encrypted with unique customer keys, transmitted, and stored at redundant SOCs. Any standard Web browser permits users to navigate the QualysGuard user interface, launch scans, examine audit report data, and manage the account. All security and compliance report data is encrypted with unique customer keys to guarantee confidentiality of information and make them unreadable by anyone other than those with proper customer authorization.

After registration for the trial, you will receive an email with a secure link to a user name and password and login URL.

This is a one-time-only link. Once you have connected to the Web page, neither you nor anyone else can do so a second time. This protects you in the event someone intercepts your email. Your login is fixed and assigned by QualysGuard. Your password is a randomly generated strong password to begin and you may change it at any time. The QuickStart window see below enables you to navigate quickly through the key QualysGuard functions.

For now, close the QuickStart window. Note the Help option on the top menu bar is available at all times and provides several forms of assistance to ensure your success. We recommend you try our new user interface and download the new UI version of this user guide.

Understand Qualys Unit Manager Responsibilities

The application style look and feel makes key user tasks easy to find, provides better support for the vulnerability lifecycle, and reduces the learning curve. UI design elements include: Simplified navigation with consistent controls and workflows, highlighted menu items when you mouse-over them, auto-complete for text entry, and the use of pop-up windows for forms so you never lose your place in the application.

Easy and quick access to data lists containing your security risk management data, with advanced search features and the ability to customize layouts on the fly. Central location to view and configure subscription-level settings. Sectional overview help with quick links to common tasks and related reading. Look and Feel Youll notice that the main application window has a consistent look and feel throughout the application with five distinct sections highlighted as A-E in the following image.

Each section is described below. Navigation Pane The navigation pane also referred to as the left menu appears on the left side of the window. Its divided into two sections. The top section is the main navigation for the primary features. The bottom section is the Tools navigation for features that support the use of the primary features.

When you select an item on the navigation pane, the data list is populated with results. For example, if you select Scan on the navigation pane, then your scans appear in the data list.

If you select Report on the navigation pane, then your reports appear in the data list. Menu Bar The menu bar also referred to as the top menu appears across the top of the window. It contains menus needed for successfully navigating each section of the interface. The menu options in the menu bar change dynamically to reflect the section youre in. If a module is enabled, then a red lock appears. If a module is not enabled, then a gray lock appears. Data List The data list appears in the main body of the window.

As you select an item on the left menu, the data list is populated with the results of your selection. For example, if you select Scan on the left menu, then your scans appear in the data list. Many data lists include an Actions menu for initiating workflows. To start a workflow, you would select the check box next to each item in the data list that the action applies to, and then select an action from the Actions menu.

To do so, go to the data list youre interested in and select Download from the New menu. The data list is downloaded based on the view presented in your browser. You can filter the data list using the View menu and Search options to control the size of the data list that is downloaded. Preview Pane The preview pane appears below the data list. The preview pane provides a quick look at important details about a selected item in the data list. Hiding these panes enables you to maximize the data list view.

These options along with the ability to hide columns, change data list sorting and increase the number of rows shown are also available from the View menu on the top menu bar.

The scanner appliance features a hardened OS kernel, is highly secure, and stores no data. Its recommended best practice that you create dedicated user accounts for installing scanner appliances, so that changes in account status do not affect scanner appliance availability. For the purpose of this review, you will simply install your scanner appliance using the same login and password you are currently using.

Creating Network Domains QualysGuard uses a domains concept for its network mapping process. Domain in this context is our name for a DNS entry, for a netblock, or for a combination. To create such a domain, you select Domain Assets under Tools on the left menu.

Here you will specify a domain or a netblock of IPs. Once you have typed them into the New Domains pop-up, click Add.

Again, a window will open reminding you that you must have permission to discover map the specified domains and netblocks. Click OK. You will be returned to the domain assets list, and the added domains will now be shown.

When specifying domains, you may add existing registered domain names recognizable by DNS servers on your network, such as mycompany. Also you have the option to add a domain called none with netblocks one or more IP addresses and IP ranges. Qualys provides a demo domain called qualys-test.

This domain may already be in your QualysGuard account. If not you can add it yourself. Note that the devices in the demo domain reside in Qualys Security Operations Centers, so the QualysGuard Internet scanners can be used for mapping this domain. Adding Hosts for Scanning The service supports network scanning and compliance scanning.

Host assets are the IP addresses in your account that may be used as scan targets.

Select Host Assets under Tools on the left menu. Youll notice that you also have the option to add hosts tracked by DNS and NetBIOS hostname, which allows for reporting host scan results in dynamic networking environments. The New Hosts page will appear.

In the window area titled Host IPs enter the IPs for which you have permission to scan and set any additional host attributes. The policy compliance module may be enabled in your account. Select this check box if you want the new IPs to also be added to the PC module, making them available for compliance scanning in addition to network scanning. Note that you can add individual IPs to the PC module at a later time.

Another window will open asking you to verify that you are authorized to scan the IP addresses you are adding. Select OK. The host assets list will now return to your display, and the newly added hosts will be added to the list. Alternatively, you can discover the devices on your network starting from a domain or netblock. Then add the IPs to your account using the workflow from the Map Results report.

For assistance with this, see the help topic Map Results under Map in the online help system.

A virtual host is a single machine that acts like multiple systems, hosting more than one domain. To ensure that the scanning service analyzes all domains when the host is scanned, set up a virtual host configuration for this IP address and specify the port and fully-qualified domain names. Select Virtual Hosts under Tools on the left menu. Asset Management Asset management capabilities provide powerful tools to manage and organize assets.

You can organize assets scanner appliances, domains and hosts into asset groups and business units, assign them business impact levels, and so on. Select Asset Groups under Tools on the left menu to view your asset groups. Asset grouping offers great flexibility, allowing you to assign assets to multiple asset groups. By clicking on the Info icon to the left of an asset group, you can view the information associated with it, including the assigned IPs, domains, users with permission to the group, and business information provided for the group.

You can expand and collapse different sections to view different types of asset group information. QualysGuard Evaluators Guide 13 Getting Started User Management Optionally you may wish to go one step further and organize asset groups into business units.

By doing so, you can grant management responsibilities to dedicated Unit Managers. Unit Managers are tasked with overseeing assets and users within their respective business units. See the Business Units section in the online help for more information.

Following is a typical example of how an enterprise might segregate their assets into user-defined business units in QualysGuard: User Management User management capabilities allow you to add multiple users with varying roles and privileges. The most privileged users are Managers and Unit Managers. These users have the ability to manage assets and users. The main difference between Managers and Unit Managers is that Managers have management authority for the subscription including any business units it may have , while Unit Managers have management authority on an assigned business unit only.

Scanners and Readers have limited rights on their assigned assets. Auditors may be added to a subscription when the compliance module is enabled in order to perform compliance management tasks. Want more info? Double click the scan row. Then you ll see the Scan Progress bar - this gives you an estimate of when the scan will finish. The scan view The Overview gives you an overview of the scan findings.

Want to see the full scan report? Easily find out what the severity levels mean in the Appendix. Here s a sample sitemap for a web application that has 271 total pages crawled, 306 total vulnerabilities and 8 sensitive content detections.

Double click a parent folder to display child links. Take actions on web app links Create a new web application from a link, or add a link to a black list or white list. You can view a link in your browser - just select that row then click the link in the details panel to the right.

Your download report will show you scan results per link.

Use the Qualys Scan Tool for Vulnerability Management

Tip - Schedule your scans to run automatically We recommend you set up scan schedules to run repeatedly. This way you ll get results automatically daily, weekly or monthly and during a time window convenient for your organization. This gives you an interactive way to get up to date information and take actions - just click on sections to get details. Not available to Express Lite users. Catalog entries are processed from completed maps and vulnerability scans in your account.

The catalog feature is not available to Express Lite users. How do I get started? Once they are complete you are ready to process the results. You ll see new catalog entries for the newly discovered web applications. You can easily choose to add these web applications to your account and scan them for security risks. Want to import Burp findings? We recognize that there's a place for both automated scanning and attack proxies. The Burp Management feature gives you a way to store the findings discovered by the Burp Suite scanner with those discovered by WAS and share this information with multiple users.

To learn more about this and future integrations refer to this blog article at the Qualys Community. This feature is not available to Express Lite users.

Then you ll see the issues from your imported reports in the Burp issues list. We ve enhanced the ability to support large web application scanning programs by adding the ability to scan any number of web applications as a Multi-Scan.

This feature enables organizations to scan hundreds or even thousands of web applications they may have in their enterprise with granular insight into what scans are running and which ones are complete. Multi-Scan is a limited release so if you are interested in becoming an early adopter, please contact your TAM or Qualys Support. Choose your applications - select individual apps or tags Take advantage of Qualys asset tagging to categorize applications that may have similar attributes and you can scan them together.

Don t have time to tag your applications? No problem - users can pick and choose application names. Select scan settings - authentication, option profile, scanner appliance The Multi-Scan feature gives you many options to accept defaults for the web applications or to override the default web application settings.

Once installed we ll automatically add firewall rules to block exploitation of the selected vulnerabilities. It s easy to get started! Select a report type, in this case Web Application Report. We ll show you how many of your downloadd licenses are activated for virtual, offline and physical scanner appliances. This option was not visible from the VM and PC applications in previous releases. Our easy to search certificates inventory will help you with this task.

We ve made this easy for you. We ll list all hosts with SHA1 certificates installed. Note These same options appear when selecting list criteria for dynamic search lists. We ve added a supported modules section to the vulnerability QID information, and this is where you ll see the Qualys modules that may be used to detect each QID. We ll show all available scanners in the scanner appliance list so you don t have to use the Build my list option.

Host counts appear in the Appendix section of your vulnerability scan results, as shown in this sample report. Qualys Release Notes 6 7 Scan Reports Exclude Superceded Patches We ve integrated some of the patch report functionality into your scan reports by introducing a new filter for superceded patches.

With this option enabled, we ll report only the recommended patches for each host and filter out patches that have been superceded. How it works A missing patch is identified by a QID like any other vulnerability. We ll report all missing patches even those that have been superceded by newer patches unless you select this option. Patch Reports New Patch Evaluation Method Get the most accurate patch recommendations by selecting our new patch evaluation method in your patch report template.

This new method works when you have complete scan findings all applicable QIDs for your target hosts. We ll determine the best patches to recommend based on the QIDs detected on each host.

Also, when multiple patches are required to fix a vulnerability you ll now see multiple patches recommended in your report. This way you have all the information you need in one report. Prefer our old method or don t have complete scan findings? No problem.

The Classic evaluation method is for you. Now these IPs will be removed from the VM module only by default.To add a Windows authentication record, select Authentication under Tools on the left menu. The New Option Profile page appears. At the top portion of the page is a Report Summary. QualysGuard Evaluators Guide Step 2: Scanning for Vulnerabilities Vulnerability KnowledgeBase Vulnerability KnowledgeBase QualysGuard provides highly accurate vulnerability scanning made possible by the industrys largest and most complete Vulnerability KnowledgeBase, an inventory of thousands of known vulnerabilities that covers all major operating systems, services and applications.

Now these IPs will be removed from the PC module only by default. Select the Custom option and then click the Add Lists button to add one or more saved search lists to the option profile.
