Global IT Asset Inventory

Global IT Asset Inventory (AI) help you to accurately assess complex IT infrastructure and quickly identify and remediate risk. Using a combination of Qualys sensors — Cloud Agents, scanners and passive network sensors — AI collects and analyzes data about assets across hybrid environments, and delivers up-to-date, comprehensive and continuous information about those assets as well as their security and compliance posture.

What are the benefits?

- Collects data from on premise (devices and applications), mobile, endpoints, cloud, containers, OT, and IoT and continuously discovers your IT assets providing 100% real-time visibility of your global hybrid-IT environment.

- Detect unknown, unauthorized assets that connect to your network and eliminate risky blind spots.

- Syncs with ServiceNow’s CMDB, continuously feeding it fresh data, so the CMDB can accurately map assets’ relationships, connections, hierarchies, and dependencies

- Categorizes data based on content research and curation techniques provided by Qualys security research and development teams

- Enriches asset inventory and search experience, adding asset intelligence by gathering comprehensive, detailed information on each asset, such as an assets’ hardware details, running services, installed software, traffic, etc. AI also gathers advanced metadata like hardware/software lifecycles, software licenses, and more.

- Allows the Security and IT teams to quickly identify critical or potential risks, such as end-of-life software, etc, and work together to remediate them.

Get started by installing cloud agents

Start building your inventory by installing cloud agents. With our lightweight agents you’ll get continuous network security updates through the cloud. As soon as changes are discovered on your hosts they’ll be assessed and you’ll know about new security threats right away.

You can have cloud agents on private clouds, public clouds, on premise and endpoints to continuously discover your IT assets providing 100% real-time visibility.
