How do I commence an external scan?


Before you start an external scan, you must first know you can only scan assets that are owned by or assigned to you (or your related entities) and that you’re authorised in writing to scan.


You can use the Qualys platform to set up your scan, as well as adjust the frequency of scans to your requirements.  To do this, you will need to identify the IP addresses and web applications (network assets) that you wish to scan.

Once you have conducted your scan, a report of the scan will be available for your review and download on the Qualys platform. If you would like any assistance with addressing vulnerabilities identified in your scan, please contact a Telstra Security Consultant on 1800 220 849.


As some scans may expose vulnerabilities already in your system which could lead to data loss or corruption, we strongly recommend you back up all data in and on devices connected to your nominated network assets before conducting scans.
