What’s New

AWS EC2 Connector - Support for Cross-Account Role Authentication
Qualys now supports the creation of EC2 connectors using a cross-account access role. This allows you to grant Qualys access to your AWS EC2 instances without sharing your AWS security credentials. Qualys will access your AWS EC2 instances by assuming the IAM role that you create in your AWS account. With this support, we are discontinuing the creation of EC2 connectors using IAM access keys. We’ll help you migrate your existing EC2 connectors to now use cross-account access roles. Note that this migration to your existing EC2 connector to cross account role is unidirectional and cannot be reverted.
