Release Notes for Qualys Cloud Agent for VMware Tanzu

These are release notes for Qualys Cloud Agent for VMware Tanzu.


Release Date: August 4, 2020

Features included in this release:

  • Proxy settings support: With this release proxy settings support is added which allows you to configure proxy for Qualys Cloud Agent to communicate with Qualys Cloud Platform and use the same proxy to download Qualys Cloud Agent in case of PCP.


Release Date: May 14, 2020

Features included in this release:

  • Initial beta release

  • Qualys Cloud Agent installation on all Ubuntu stemcell based VMs in the VMware Tanzu environment.

  • Qualys Cloud Agent from all Qualys Cloud Platforms is bundled in the tile and a particular Qualys Cloud Agent gets installed as per user configured inputs.

  • Private Cloud Platform (PCP) support is added by providing a custom download link. If you are using PCP, host the cloud agent at some network-accessible location inside your environment and use that URL in the download URL field on tile form during installation.

  • Using Qualys Cloud Agent, you will get continuous network security updates of the VMs through the cloud. As soon as changes are discovered on your VMs, they will be assessed and you will know about new security threats and vulnerabilities.

Known issues in this release:

  • Only Ubuntu VMs are supported.

  • Uninstalling the tile does not cleanly remove the cloud agent and hence during installation, the existing qualys-cloud-agent package is removed first irrespective of it being installed earlier and then the configured Debian package is installed.
