The Qualys Cloud Platform February 2021 releases include Qualys Cloud Suite 10.8.0 and 3.5.0, which contain new features and important enhancements in Unified Dashboard and Web Application Scanning, and new technology support in Policy Compliance.
Better management of customs widgets and dashboards
Qualys Dashboards now allow users to modify and delete user-defined widgets and dashboards. In case an unedited widget template is used in multiple dashboards, users can even edit the widget template in one place and have the widget update in all the dashboards where it is being used.
Ability to convert a dashboard into PDF
Qualys now enables its customers to convert a dashboard into a PDF report that would include the widgets and results of the widgets. This would help authorized users not only to visualize the data gathered with Qualys, but also to share reports with concerned teams and keep them updated about the current security and compliance posture.
Each PDF would include the dashboard classification in the header as well as the user name and timestamp in the footer of the report.
New user role in the Admin module
With the 18.104.22.168 release, Qualys introduces a new global user role to manage dashboard access for all products, which have migrated to unified dashboard framework. This new role would help organizations that want to have an authorized user who focuses on dashboard-reporting and representation of data across the platform, with granular access rights such as create/edit/delete/modify dashboards.

Web Application Scanning (WAS)
Scan Intensity Details Now Shown in Downloaded Reports
When downloading a report in any format from Qualys Web Application Scanning, the scan intensity settings for the scanning option profile will now be displayed. Earlier, downloaded reports only displayed whether you were using a pre-defined or custom scan setting with no details on the setting itself.
With this change, the details of the scan intensity setting will now be reported. For example, for our pre-defined scan intensities, we will now show Lowest, Low, Medium, High, and Maximum. For custom scan intensities, the number of HTTP threads and the delay between requests will be displayed.
