Re: qualys integration with arcsight

Is this for QualysGuard VM's or cloud based solutions?

It normally only requires the API access to be enabled, and depending on the product you might get better information from them, as this changes after new versions of Qualys is released.

The Qualys XML Connector normally fetches data from the Qualys device through the API, so only that + a username and credentials should be needed to begin with.

I am sure we can work something out.

From what I can see on previous similar questions both here and on the Qualys forums is that the API would have to be enabled through your Qualys TAM contact, and after that the questions during installation should take care of the rest.

It will in the end ask you for the destination URL to your qualys installation, a username, a password and optionally a certificate if that needs to be imported.

If there is any issues during the installation please let us know, and feel free to include some logs or screenshots and it might be easier to help out.
