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

Pros
The scalability is good. The scalability is more than good because it can operate both as a standalone and it can be integrated as part of applications. So that really makes it a very, very versatile solution to have.For us, the most valuable aspect of the solution is the log-sequence feature.It can operate both as a standalone and it can be integrated with other applications, which makes it a very versatile solution to have.Our developers can run the attacks directly from their environments, desktops.The vulnerability scanning option for analyzing the security loopholes on the websites is the most valuable feature of this solution.The automated approach to these repetitive discovery attempts would take days to do manually and therefore it helps reduce the time needed to do an assessment.Their technical support has been very active. If I have an issue, I can reach out to them and get an answer pretty quick.We are able to create a report which shows the PCI DSS scoring and share it with the application teams. Then, they can correlate and see exactly what they need to fix, and why.

Cons
We want to see how much bandwidth usage it consumes. When we monitor traffic we have issues with the consumption and throttling of the traffic.The solution limits the number of scans. It would be much better if we could have unlimited scans.When monitoring the traffic we always have issues with the bandwidth consumption and the throttling of traffic.Tools that would allow us to work more efficiently with the mobile environment, with Android and iOS.In terms of what needs improvement, the way the licensing model is currently is not very convenient for us because initially, when we bought it, the licensing model was very flexible, but now it restricts us.It would be nice to have a feature to "retest" only a single vulnerability that the customer reports as patched, and delete it from the next scans since it has already been patched.You can't actually change your password after you've set it unless you go back into the administration account and you change it there. Thus, if you're locked out and don't remember your password, that's a thing.We have had issues during upgrades where their scans worked on some apps better with previous versions. Then, we had to work with their tech support, who were great, to get it fixed for the next version.

The reporting needs improvement. It should generate much more stuff like field reports.The customer support is very bad.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.

The interface could be improved; right now it's running on two interfaces simultaneously.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The costs aren't very expensive. It costs around $3000 or $4000.All things considered, I think it has a good price/value ratio.The pricing and licensing are reasonable to a point. In order to run multiple scans at a time, we are going to have to purchase a 100 count license, which is an overkill. Though, compared to what we were paying for, the cost seems reasonable.When we looked at all other vendors and what they were asking for, to provide a third of what Acunetix was capable of doing, it was an easy decision... But now that it's coming to a cost where it's line with market value, it becomes more of a competition... Acunetix is raising the cost of licensing. It's 3.5 times what we were initially quoted.Acunetix was around the same price as all the other vendors we looked at, nothing special.
