Qualys VM Review

User-friendly, supports multiple platforms, and the VM DR capabilities are helpful

What is our primary use case?

We are using Qualys VM, as our scanner tool. We also use it for Application Security and Policy Compliance.

We use it for the identification of vulnerabilities for all of our devices on the network. This includes Windows workstations, servers, and Linux machines. We also use it for cloud, and external use as well.

What is most valuable?

The features that are most valuable are the identification, scan features, and the identification of vulnerabilities. Recently, the VMDR additions and the threat protection has been useful.

It's pretty user-friendly.

What needs improvement?

The Patch Identifications, which are supersedence identifications, need improvement.

I would like to see more accuracy in detections, better reporting capabilities, and better dashboard download capabilities. These are things that are definitely needed.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Qualys VM for more than 15 years.

We are using the latest version.

VMDR was added in July with newer enhancements.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's very scalable for large networks. We have also used the agents and they work very well.

I have a team of five in our organization and external to it, there are approximately twenty-five.

How are customer service and technical support?

We engage with technical support often. There could be some improvements made.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

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

It is different for every company, but for us, it's every three years. I will know more about the pricing in September because we are going to be looking at our pricing again.

We get a large volume discount, which is good.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product to others who are interested in using it.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
