Strengthen vulnerability management with asset inventory #

Vulnerability scanning is vital to enterprise security programs, and the first step in the vulnerability management lifecycle is to create and maintain a complete and accurate asset inventory. Vulnerability scans alone cannot detect all assets that are unmanaged or unknown which can leave assets unpatched, misconfigured, or vulnerable to exploitation. runZero makes managing your asset inventory simple, while our comprehensive asset and network context makes taking action on your vulnerability scan results more efficient and effective. runZero’s integration with Qualys helps to identify gaps in your vulnerability scan coverage and add context to scan results, which expedites responses to newly discovered vulnerabilities.

Benefits #

  • Discover gaps in Qualys vulnerability scanning coverage
  • Complement vulnerability results with high-fidelity asset and network data
  • Identify new vulnerabilities more quickly and effectively

How runZero helps

Find gaps in vulnerability scanning coverage #

Vulnerability scanning aims to identify assets with vulnerabilities that need to be remediated or risks that need to be mitigated. Incomplete or inadequate scanning can leave assets unmonitored and unpatched. runZero’s network scanning ensures complete and accurate asset inventory and runZero’s integration with Qualys enables identification of assets that were potentially missed by vulnerability scans, allowing for vulnerability scan policy adjustment and improved security posture.

Add context to Qualys results #

The most effective vulnerability management programs consider vulnerability management and risk mitigation in the context of broader security and IT perspectives, rather than focusing solely on vulnerabilities detected on individual assets. runZero’s unauthenticated network scanning capabilities offer an asset inventory that provides context to vulnerability scan results collected by Qualys. By supplementing your Qualys vulnerability scan results with runZero’s comprehensive asset inventory, you can quickly identify and prioritize vulnerabilities for remediation.

Expedite response to new vulnerabilities #

The identification of impacted assets is time-sensitive when a new vulnerability is discovered. runZero complements Qualys’s vulnerability scanning capabilities by providing extensive fingerprinting capabilities to find vulnerabilities that affect specific operating systems, hardware, or services. Additionally, it allows you to query vulnerability and asset details to quickly locate impacted assets while preparing for a full analysis.

How it works

Step 1: Scan your network with runZero

Step 2: Connect with Qualys

Step 3: Leverage the merged data to improve your vulnerability management program

Deploy runZero anywhere, on any platform, in minutes
