We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
Key features are the Software Vulnerability Assessment and the CSM, which is the configuration check.

The most valuable features are vulnerability detection and the scanning capability to enable identification of vulnerabilities across our network.Technical support is fantastic.There are fewer false positives when using this solution.Tech support is helpful.It is quite easy to implement.It is a simple solution that makes scanning easy. You just give it a scheduled task, and it will do everything for you.The reporting is fine.I find the most valuable features are the continuous monitoring. Even on premises, there is constant monitoring.

Cons
Anything outside of the software vulnerability management and the CSM, things like the GhostPort, need some improvement. The dashboard is in beta. It looks really good, I wish it would come out of beta.In the CSM module the policies are really hard to work with it. It is not very flexible at all. I would suggest that they change that. Right now, the scan is based on the group that the server is in. What happens if the server is in multiple groups?Of all the advertised functions, I only find two things that really work in my environment, even though I wanted to use all of them. They're not flexible enough to be used.

I would like to see this solution more developed and competitive in the Cloud space.It's quite complex on the way it is set up, so it takes a fair bit of time in order to get your head around it in order to deploy it. Once you've deployed it, then you're never confident on the versions of the browsers and the SSL certificates, etc. You have to always go back into Qualys and check.I do not like that all of the data is stored on the cloud.When you want to cover yourself for scalability, you will be charged for the number you place on the scan itself.It is more expensive vs. other products on the market.The only improvement I can think of is on the implementation side. At times it is a bit slow.They have integrated with other third parties, but it is still not viable.When tested on Zero day, there were errors.

Pricing and Cost Advice
CloudPassage is a little bit on the expensive side. So my suggestion is that the company lower its price point a wee bit or sell modules, separate them in modules, because I only find two things that are useful to me, yet I pay for four or five modules. It didn't seem like it was a fair deal.
