Get Started

Qualys Patch Management saves you time and effort by automating patch management on Windows assets, for both Microsoft and Non-Microsoft patches, using a single patch management application. It provides instant visibility on patches available for your assets and tells you whether these patches are already installed. You can automatically deploy new patches as and when they are available.

The Cloud Agent downloads the required patches from external sources. However, patches that require authentication cannot be downloaded by the agent. You can manually download and install such patches on the assets. Qualys Patch Management will then identify these patches as installed.

We do not support scanning assets running Windows evaluation versions. These assets are scanned for missing/installed patches once they are upgraded to the full version of Windows.

Note: Qualys Patch Management 1.4 has several search and token changes due to which your existing dashboard widgets might stop working or show errors. To fix the widgets, see Rebuild Widgets.

Fallback to free version

Patch Management will revert to the Free version once your Trial or Full subscription expires. Existing scan intervals of less than 24 hours will get converted to intervals of 24 hours. Your existing jobs will be disabled and you can re-enable them once you renew your subscription.

The free version allows you to create assessment profiles with a minimum scan interval of 24 hours and see a list of missing and installed patches on the assets in your environment. It doesn’t allow creating deployment/uninstall jobs.
