We are excited to announce an update to the Infoblox® integration with Qualys.


By combining Infoblox’s DNS technology with the Qualys Cloud Platform, organizations can automate scanning as new devices join the network, or when malicious activity is detected. Infoblox provides a single source of truth for devices and networks which Qualys can leverage to organize new assets, automate tracking, and generate a detailed view of the network. Additionally, Infoblox’s robust DNS security can be used to inform Qualys of potential infected hosts, which effectively increases the visibility to indicators of compromise. In summary, Infoblox paired with Qualys, allows for increased automation, improved remediation, and a better ROI on both products.


This Integration supports a wide variety of events in IPv4 Only: ADP, Fixed Addresses, Host Addresses, Lease, Network, RPZ, Range, and Tunnel.


The Infoblox Integration with Qualys - Deployment Guide will cover the steps required to properly deploy this integration. Integration templates that are referenced in the deployment guide are attached to this blog post. Templates are in a .json format and are provided “as is”. As always, with any changes to your network, this integration should be fully tested before deploying into a production environment.
