Agent installations are managed in Cloud Agent (CA).
Qualys Cloud Agent Platform
Our revolutionary platform gives you continuous security updates through the cloud using lightweight cloud agents. Go to Cloud Agent (CA) app to install agents and activate them for FIM. It's possible to activate existing agents for FIM with other capabilities like VM and PC.
Choose CA (Cloud Agent) from the app picker.
Here you can review requirements and get help with installing and activating agents.
Choose from your user menu if you don't see it.
Create an activation key. Go to Activation Keys, click the New Key button. Give it a title, provision for the FIM application and click Generate.
As you can see you can provision the same key for any of the other applications in your account.
Pick either Windows or Linux to download the agent installer. Want to do this step later?
No problem, just exit the wizard. When you're ready return to your activation keys list, select the key you want to use, then Install Agent from the Quick Actions menu.
You'll run the installer on each system from an elevated command prompt, or use a systems management tool or Windows group policy.
Your agents should start connecting to our cloud platform.
Go to the Agents tab, choose an agent and "Activate for FIM or IOC" from the Quick Actions menu. (Bulk activation is supported using the Actions menu).
You can create a new profile or edit an existing one. On the FIM tab, toggle “Enable FIM module for this profile” to On. Learn more
Tip - We recommend you set up asset tags for FIM assets and assign the same tags in CA configuration profile and FIM monitoring profile.
Select FIM from the application picker and go to the Configuration section to create a FIM monitoring profile, then start investigating FIM events in minutes.
