Qualys Web Application Scanning Review

User-friendly, good scanning analysis and reporting, and offers real-time vulnerability monitoring

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use this solution for VM scanning. We scan more than a thousand applications.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are scanning analysis and reporting.

This solution also provides real-time monitoring.

The interface is user-friendly and easy to understand.

What needs improvement?

The reporting needs to be improved because there are a lot of search parameters, and at the end of the day, the reports are so large that it is very difficult for us to go through each and every point to analyze the vulnerabilities.

The scanner reports a lot of false positives, which is something that needs to be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Qualys for almost a year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

In terms of scalability, Qualys is good.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not dealt with technical support yet because there are other people dealing with issues that arise. My understanding is that technical support is good.

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

I have also used the Nexus Vulnerability Scanner and it reports fewer false positives.

How was the initial setup?

This solution was implemented before I joined the department.

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

There are different options available with respect to licensing.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
