Unified Dashboard for Enhanced Security Visualization

Qualys has introduced a new app named Unified Dashboard (UD) to enrich your dashboarding experience. Unified Dashboard (UD) brings information from all Qualys applications into a single place for visualization. UD adds a powerful new dashboarding framework to the Qualys Cloud Platform that will be consumed and used by all other products to enhance the existing dashboard capabilities.

Dashboards can be used to convey relevant information to any audience at any time and in any place. The dashboards can be customized and shared with their intended end-users. Unified Dashboard provides greater agility and enriches the capabilities of dashboards. Users can visualize data from other applications at a central place and get a better understanding of data.

Single-Pane-of-Glass Visibility

The Unified Dashboard (UD) Framework replaces the individual dashboard engines across the products. UD will give you single-pane-of-glass visibility into your organization. Unified Dashboard provides greater agility and capabilities, allowing you to visualize data from all applications together, get a better understanding of your data, better answer questions, and make new insights.

One of the struggles many face is the ability to see global IT asset inventory together with the current patch posture breakdown for their organization. As in this example Unified Dashboard can cohesively and dynamically work with Global IT Asset Inventory, Vulnerability Management and Patch Management widgets to show a single view of your enterprise.
