Pros
It combines both web application vulnerability management and internal vulnerability management on one platform and dashboard. Usually, you have to purchase separate tools.We can do scanning and submit reports straight to the customers when there are new vulnerabilities, then tell them whether they are affected or not.Key features include: Cloud-based, so the installation is not so tedious. Easily deployed. Highly scalable. Comprehensive reporting.You can integrate your Burp Suite results and create an integrated report. Also, the way it shows the results - threats and exploit details - makes remediation very easy.​QualysGuard web-based scanner is very useful for performing external penetration and PCI scans from remote locations.​By using QualysGuard, we are able to finish external scans with assured results in half the time.​​This product is designed for easy scalability and can easily scale up ​without major challenges.​We have experienced quick customer support.

It's become the pinnacle point for anything that enters the network or anything that's passing through to production to first be affected by IP360, hardened, and up to standard. For our integrity management, one was deployed in the bank about two years ago and that's still going to expand the usage and the product itself. That will go hand in hand with training and expanding the product as for where it's deployed.

Cons
The area of false positives could be improved. There are quite a number of false positives as compared to other solutions. They could probably fine tune the algorithm to be able to reduce the number of false positives being detected.In terms of the Policy Compliance model which they currently have, not all the platforms are being covered. If they could improve on the Policy Compliance model, since there are policies which are benchmarked against it, this will be helpful for us.The GUI could be a little less complicated as it opens a lot of new windows for creating search lists, templates, reports, or for scanning purposes.They should try to include business logic vulnerabilities in the scanner testing.In certain cases, this product does have false positives, which the company should work on.

The reporting functions can use improvement. There is room for growth because reporting functions differ a lot depending on what you're going to output. It depends on whether it's for technical or senior management and how it's interpreted. There could be growth within the reporting functionality side.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Licensing was based on the number of assets that you want to scan on your network. You can also do licensing on subscription. On subscription, it is easier and more flexible. You tell Qualys that you want to move from the 1000 to 2000 band or the 3000 or 5000 band, then they will give you the quotation for it. Once you pay for it, applying the licensing is quite easy and effective.Pricing was reasonable and competitive. It was not too far above the other products.Qualys has an IT-based licensing based on a yearly license, which is a good way of handling it. However, in some cases, when we do the PCI scanning, the host will not like the scanning and we lose the IT license. So, this could be improved.​It is best to be an institutional buyer and directly contact the sales team, as they can provide over-the-top discounts for bulk orders​.Try the free trial of the product to understand the basic working mechanisms.​
