What do you think of Qualys VM?

It is a very good product in terms of ease of deployment and management and I have personally implemented the solution at a financial institution. The latest release of ThreatProtect is a cloud-based service that correlates external threat data against an organization’s internal vulnerabilities & lets IT pros automatically prioritize remediation work, such as patch deployment & risk mitigation.The dashboard displays entire threat posture at a glance and provides stats such as assets with active zero-day vulnerabilities.The release of our Cloud agent allows organizations to continuously monitor their systems for vulnerabilities and compliance violations in real-time with active alerts. Current in beta is IOC,FIM and the new release of WAF 2.0 and WAS 2.0. Qualys is continuously…

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are that it is a simple solution that makes scanning easy. You just give it a scheduled task, and it will do everything for you. The reporting… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Before using Qualys, we had other security tools. And, the main purpose was to remove the granularity. We had so many attacks every day. Qualys really helped us manage the… more»

What needs improvement?

The only improvement I can think of is on the implementation side, otherwise the operation is fine. At times it is a bit slow. Qualys is really nice, but people only use… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I am not personally involved with the pricing or licensing of the solution for our organization.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I have previous experience with Tenable Nessus. I like Qualys better because there are so many nice features, it builds better.

What other advice do I have?

A really nice feature of Qualys is the asset management. Some of the end users were using that function, and paid for that particular function. It is helpful to get a bit… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have prior experience with Alert Logic CloudDefender, RSA, Odyssey and Forcepoint Websense (formerly Raytheon Websense).

What is most valuable?

The way we can maintain a current actual registry of all the IP assets within it is very good. The scanning of software assets on the endpoint machine is also useful. I've tried the scanning of similar asset vulnerabilities throughout different servers, including Unix and Windows. Qualys maintains a good intervention database. We have a service line that updates to the newest software, or whenever… more»

What needs improvement?

The server application scanning has room for improvement. 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. They do talk about an agent-based scanning… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would advise others to always have a proof of concept version of the solution put into play. Then spend a good two months on it. Stabilize the solution and check out the features and then deploy it into production. Otherwise, you will spend money during the real project for what could have been done as a POC. Deploy the core solution, get the scanning done and all the critical components put it… more»

What is most valuable?

I find the most valuable features are the continuous monitoring. Even on premises, there is constant monitoring.

How has it helped my organization?

If any anomalies are there, we can easily detect with our agent based solutions, and we can isolate them quickly, and response time or any incident is much quicker than previous. Before we were taking eight hours, now we're taking around 30… more»

What needs improvement?

When tested on Zero day, there were errors. In addition, they have integrated with other third parties, but it is still not viable. They are using their own Q id's. This sometimes leads to a false positive. And, even the updating of… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's good. Yes, it's competitive. We got the best price.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I also have previous experience with Tennable Nessus, and I find Qualys is better than Nessus, which is slow in the security center and lags a bit.

What is most valuable?

I find most valuable to achieve a channel system and we can also use it to track when we actually close the ticketing of the sites. In addition, it is quite easy to implement. We found it quite convenient.

What needs improvement?

I think it could improve asset imagery.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Qualys is considered more expensive versus other products on the market.

What other advice do I have?

I advise that you see if this solution can fit your problems, and help your needs.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were previously using McAfee. We had to switch because McAfee stopped producing the solution we needed. We considered Tenable Nessus, but we chose Qualys in the end.

What do you think of Qualys VM?

What is our primary use case?

It mainly scans the model against all of our online websites.

How has it helped my organization?

There are fewer false positives when using this solution. We are also cutting the need for news monitoring with this solution.

What is most valuable?

We find all of the features useful. 

What needs improvement?

One note for room for improvement is that all of the data is stored on the cloud. I think it would be better if they came up with a big box that could store the data and collect data from, it would be a huge improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is an extremely impressive and stable product. I would give it a 99% out of 100%. It is very close to…
