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

Pros
"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.""Technical support is great and we've never really had a problem.""The features that are most valuable are the identification, scan features, and the identification of vulnerabilities."

"Change Manager is most important because of the impact on each other of a network change or a firewall change. We want to understand this and to know, beforehand, what the impact of a change will be. We are a large network so that is a very important tool.""The solution's simplicity of use is its most valuable feature.""The port division management was the solution's most valuable aspect for our organization.""The most valuable features are Firewall Assurance and Vulnerability Control.""The most valuable feature is firewall management.""The feature that I have found the most valuable is that it gathers all the information from firewalls and then generates a report for me. I can then do some analytics and mediation based on what Skybox Security Suite provided.""The solution offers very nice dashboards and they've recently added a very good Java-based web interface."

Cons
"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.""We are moving away from Qualys to Defender ATP because I find that Defender ATP is much better at prioritizing the vulnerabilities that I should be looking at.""I would like to see more accuracy in detections, better reporting capabilities, and better dashboard download capabilities."

"The solution needs to add more automation and orchestration capabilities. Those features would make the solution much stronger.""The solution was quite technical. It would be easier to manage if the solution was more specific about aspects of the solution and provided more advisory around how to use it effectively. It would help users a lot if they were more clear about everything.""The most recent update was not tested with all of the vendors before it was released, so some of the features are misbehaving.""The Network Assurance, which helps to create the network model, is not so rich.""They can improve the user interface. They can also improve the web version. They have a so-called Java client in their roadmap, but I'm not sure when it will come.""The support could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"They have recently changed the pricing model, which is now better than it was before.""It is different for every company, but for us, it's every three years.""Qualys is cheaper and more affordable than other solutions."

More Qualys VM Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Pricing is on the higher side. In terms of licensing, you should buy the complete suite rather than buying only the Change Manager. I think Change Manager with Vulnerability Control is something that would be interesting to look at.""The price is not expensive.""Currently, the licensing costs me about $300 USD for the year. This is a huge amount for my environment."
