Qualys helps companies discover, design, diagonoze,defend and monitor their business assets and corresponding threats .

Pros

The Console . The Qualys console has all the modules like VMDR , PC, SCA, PM , FIM etc. The Same agent can be used to perform all these tasks and scan for vulnerabilities . Its pretty straightforward and easy.

Cons

Reporting format is a bit shaggy if you would ask me ..But having said that , the addition and deletion of controls also has to be more easily doable.

It is one of the better solutions I have worked with. There are false-positives however this is common to most vulnerability scanners. This is one of the top 3 vulnerability scanners I would recommend. Take the time to understand what you require from the product and start building your tasks and reporting around it. The product will proof extremely valuable.

Pros

The interface is nice and clean. Free online training with labs aids in understanding the product. Easy deployment of agents on both Windows and Linux endpoints.

Cons

Configuring scans was not the easiest of tasks to perform initially. I recommend doing the free online training first before embarking with the deployment. Reporting needs to be improved especially the look and feel of the .PDF reports. Scheduling tasks I found limited as I wanted a particular scan to run 2 days out of the month and was unable to do so. Instead I had to create 2 tasks. Could not find an option to create custom usernames.

That was my first contact with vulnerability management. Perhaps it's a good software for start or for small companies. I was able to recognize my needs and it helped a lot to find a professional solution.

Pros

Lots of features, agent available, flexible pricing. Software as a service, so you don't need any infrastructure.

Cons

Useless unprofessional support, unable to solve any of my issues. They were closing unresolved issues. Lot of false positives. Support couldn't solve them, I got promises that it will be fixed in next release. Awful and unreliable reporting (errors on dashboards etc.). Very expensive. They're not using real cloud but couple of concentrators in different regions. Not useful for global customers. They promise they don't have access to customer data, but they request that to solve problems.

In my oppinion, the best vulnerability management solution in the market

Reviewed on 2019/12/05

Pros

From my years of experience with vulnerability management solutions, Qualys is the best one in the market. First, it is really easy to set up, specially the cloud solution. In less than few hours you can start scanning your environment. Second, it's vulnerability database is constantly updated with the latest vulnerabilities. Third, it contains tons of apps that extends its capabilities (e.g. Asset management app, web application scanning, PCI compliance monitoring, etc.) ...

Cons

The price tag is not the cheapest one. Their licensing model is per IP on the scope, not per live IPs. So for example, if you have three /24 networks with one server each, you will be paying to scan 765 IPs (255*3) instead of only 3 IPs.

The implementation time for qualys is way lower than any other tool. Also, the amount of out-of-the-box reports is way higher than any other product, and their vulnerability database is constantly updated.

Overall it has been very positive and we will continue to use it. It has helped us greatly lock down our environment.

Pros

Qualys gives high-quality reports in an easy to read format. The agent has been easy to install and has not caused any issues.

Cons

We have had some instances where scan attempts ended up causing confusion or application outages when they were not designed to handle the scans.
