You must collect events from an XML file output from a Product in Qualys Format.
Rapid7 NeXpose has the capability of sending their event output in Qualys Guard format.
Note: As part of an OEM partnership agreement between Rapid7 and Symantec, Symantec's Control Compliance Suite Vulnerability Manager (CCS VM) leverages the Rapid7 NeXpose scan engine. As such, events generated by CCS VM may also be collected by following the these instructions.
To collect Rapid7 events, or any other point product that can output to Qualys Guard format we do not have a collector for, you must use the Qualys Guard collector. You do not have to have a Qualys Guard account to do this.
Note: You must setup a method to transfer the resulting XML from the Rapid7 computer to the computer that has the Agent and Collector installed.
