Qualys VM Review

Good technical support that is always there when you need them, but the prioritization of vulnerabilities needs to be improved

What is our primary use case?

We are currently using Qualys for vulnerability detection, as part of our security solution. We're moving towards Defender ATP because I am looking more at the Operational Technology (OT) side of things than I am at the Information Technology (IT) side.

What is most valuable?

What I like best about this product is that it does what it is supposed to do, which is vulnerability scanning.

What needs improvement?

We are moving away from Qualys to Defender ATP because I find that Defender ATP is much better at prioritizing the vulnerabilities that I should be looking at.

In general, I would like to see some better analytics and prioritization of vulnerabilities.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with Qualys VM for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Qualys VM is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a stable product.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is great and we've never really had a problem. They're always there if we need them.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not work with another similar solution prior to Qualys.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

Our setup involved some on-premises deployments but ultimately, it uses the cloud.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

They have recently changed the pricing model, which is now better than it was before.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Right now, we don't have anything in our OT environment, and this is what I am particularly interested in. I am currently having discussions about new solutions with Qualys, Tenable, and Forescout.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
