Qualys Cloud Platform
The revolutionary architecture that powers Qualys' IT, security, and compliance cloud apps.
Qualys Cloud Platform gives you a continuous, always-on assessment of your global IT, security, and compliance posture, with 2-second visibility across all your IT assets, wherever they reside. And with automated, built-in threat prioritization, patching and other response capabilities, it’s a complete, end-to-end security solution.
On premises, at endpoints, on mobile, in containers or in the cloud, Qualys Cloud Platform sensors are always on, giving you continuous 2-second visibility of all your IT assets. Remotely deployable, centrally managed and self-updating, the sensors come as physical or virtual appliances, or lightweight agents.

- Local Scanners: on-premises hardware scanners for internal networks
- Passive Scanners: real-time network analysis of your data
- Out-of-Band Sensors: secure highly locked-down devices and air-gapped networks
- Container Sensors: secure container environments across build, ship, and run
- Cloud Connectors: collect data from 3rd party cloud platforms and software
- SaaS Connectors: collect data from popular SaaS applications
