Qualys Web Application Scanning Room for Improvement

Knowing we are in an early phase of discovery and comparison, it is impossible to know exactly what features may need improvement. Some seem to be interesting, on the other hand. The only thing that is in need of improvement from my perspective at this point is pricing in comparison to other, similar products. View full review »

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. Going forward, I would like it to scan for given vulnerabilities and add-ons, then confirm whether it is an actual threat or not without the false positives. View full review »

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. View full review »

In certain cases, this product does have false positives, which the company should work on. They should also try to include business logic vulnerabilities in the scanner testing. View full review »

The reporting needs to be improved because there are a lot of search parameters, and at the end of the day, the reports are so large that it is very difficult for us to go through each and every point to analyze the vulnerabilities. The scanner reports a lot of false positives, which is something that needs to be improved. View full review »

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. Also, occasionally it can't even authenticate to basic web forms. View full review »

Please add manual penetration testing features. Also I didn't like the license terms and the features were limited compared to other tools used for web applications. View full review »
