Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"They also have threat detection which maps threats. There is a feed that comes from Qualys when a new vulnerability is found. It tells us which machines are infected with that vulnerability.""The most valuable feature is the certificate management."

"Technical support is fantastic.""The most valuable features are vulnerability detection and the scanning capability to enable identification of vulnerabilities across our network.""What I like about Qualys VM is the dashboard presentation. It's very good.""It's a good product. After the scan our internet works well. It scans our security posture.""It is very easy to use and there are lots of options. We can usually easily go through it and all of the things we want to configure, and we can configure everything to our specifications very easily.""The initial setup was good. We didn't have any problems with it."

Cons
"What we have found is that the solution is not closely tied with the patch management. It is okay with newer ones, like Windows 10 machines; it gives the correct patch. But for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008, it does not give us the correct patch so we have to manually identify the patches. This is a major problem.""The reporting in this solution can be improved."

"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 would like to see this solution more developed and competitive in the Cloud space.""The customer support is very bad.""The reporting needs improvement. It should generate much more stuff like field reports.""Sometimes we face a problem with accessing the tool and not getting an expected result. From a technology point of view, they need to look into this.""The ability to manage user accounts and give rights to the operator to know about abnormalities of applications is something that needs improvement."

Overview

Qualys Virtual Scanner Appliance supports the same global scanning capabilities as our physical scanner appliance. The virtual scanner appliance is a stateless, disposable resource which acts as an extension of the Qualys Cloud Platform and is not a separately managed entity. This user guide describes how to get started with using a virtual scanner with your virtualization or cloud platform.

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.
