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.

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.Improve the API speed.

Overview

DNS is one of the fastest growing attack vectors because it’s essential for network connectivity, and current security solutions are not designed to protect it. Distributed denial of service (DDoS) and other external and internal DNS-based threats can flood your DNS server with malicious requests, bringing down your network. These attacks can redirect users to harmful Internet destinations, exfiltrate data, and expose your customers and business to additional risks. Security technologies such as NextGen firewalls, IPS, and generic DDoS solutions do not understand DNS and are unable to prevent specific attacks such as DNS cache poisoning, DNS hijacking, reflection attacks, amplification attacks, and many others.

With Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection, you can comprehensively defend your DNS server from the widest range of DNS-based attacks, while maintaining service availability and business continuity.

Qualys Vulnerability Management (VM) is a cloud-based service that gives you immediate, global visibility into where your IT systems might be vulnerable to the latest Internet threats and how to protect them. It helps you to continuously identify threats and monitor unexpected changes in your network before they turn into breaches.
