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 interface could be improved; right now it's running on two interfaces simultaneously.""It would be helpful if Tenable could be more clear with regard to everything the solution can and cannot do with the particular license that you have.""An area of improvement for this solution is being able to customize the dashboard. For example, the dashboard does not allow us to view a previous months vulnerability results alongside current results to make comparisons.""The pricing of the solution could be more reasonable.""There needs to be better dashboard navigation.""The solution seems to focus too much on enterprises, and they really need a product that works for SMBs."
