Enhancements to Control Mappings for Mandate Based Reporting

Qualys has introduced a new control mapping where each control is mapped with the granular control objectives. This approach enhances the functionality of Mandate Based Reporting and helps organizations better understand their compliance against respective mandates.

In the older approach, each control was mapped with multiple control objectives, which allows the control to appear for multiple control objectives in Mandate Based Reports. The challenge with this approach is that the report was very large and it was time-consuming and confusing for organizations to understand and identify their compliance against the respective mandate.

In the new approach, each control is mapped with the most appropriate control objectives. This allows the control to only appear for the most appropriate control objectives.

Changes you will notice in Mandate Based Reports:

  • Granular mappings listed for controls when you drill-down into report details.
  • Your reports may have fewer controls listed than previously as we’ve taken an approach to show the most accurate mappings.
  • Changes to control objectives. This may be especially noticeable when your report is grouped by control objective for a harmonized report with multiple mandates included.
