We are just a customer and end-user. We are using the latest version of the solution. I cannot speak to the exact version we are using, however. We are using both the on-premises and cloud deployment models. We have on-premise sensors and we have a scan-over cloud service from Qualys. Qualys cloud has a scanning capability for pairing sensors, for scanning an external perimeter. Therefore, we are utilizing that and agents as well. I'd recommend the solution. If anybody looks forward to first perimeter security, if any conceptual work is done around perimeter security, they have to solve that agent issue first for their program. Companies need to select a solution that can work wherever the PC is.

Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of eight. For us, it's just more of gathering more experience. The more we learn, I think we'll appreciate it, and then maybe from that point, we'll be able to say it's a nine, or a ten. It's more on us versus the solution.

Overall, this is a good product and I recommend it, mainly because of the capabilities and the management using a single console. I can even create a calendar for activities from the main screen. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

We are a Qualys customer. We aren't a reseller or partner. Overall I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. We are currently looking at other options, to see if there's a better solution out there. This one has pretty good technical support and is easy to use, however, there are other issues associated with it.

I would like for Qualys to have the ability to scan OT operation technology assets as well. If it can I would rate it 8 out of 10.

If you are comparing Nexpose and Qualys, I would prefer Qualys. The UI is good and whatever reports you are getting, are very clear. If you present it to management, the reports are good. They require an executive report that highlights the vulnerability and how many servers are affected. You can customize it also. Nexpose is coming out with new features, but Qualys has already implemented them. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

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 in a proof of concept and then move it into production. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

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 of history of all types of supports of scanning of particular servers.
