My advice to those wanting to implement this solution is if you have experience and knowledge with vulnerability management and reading through all the threats, this could be a good platform for you. If you are a new starter this solution is not a good place to start. I rate Qualys Web Application Scanning an eight out of ten.

I would recommend Qualys if the budget is not a problem. There may be other open-source solutions that could be used to perform a similar analysis. On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate this solution as an eight-out-of-ten.

My advice for anyone considering this solution is, "Go for it." On a scale of one to ten, I would give Qualys Web Application Scanning a seven.

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst ten is the best, I would rate Qualys as a seven at this point. It is difficult to rate Qualys — or even products from other companies — as better than this because we are hearing the same thing from all the product manufacturers before we went into testing. But based on the references from other users about Qualys, our current level of experience, the pricing as we know it and the services that are offered for free, Qualys is a seven. What we have mostly found at this point is that you can't just install a free trial version of a product and get a complete impression immediately. With some products like Qualys or others in the category, the pricing may not be completely right because there are hidden costs. It could be one solution is not quick to deploy and that seems to make it difficult but in actual use, it is easier than everything else. Some products will be easy to set up and after 10 days of trying to work with it, I might be disappointed because of what I committed to.

We are using the cloud deployment model. I would recommend other users to use Qualys Application Scanning for application security. If you're serious about security you need a service or a solution that does continuous scanning of your application and infrastructure. There are always vulnerabilities being introduced. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

I would advise someone considering this product is to find a solution that is easy to use. We use this solution because we need to. I would rate it an eight out of ten. Not a ten because the reporting needs improvement. It should have better automatic reporting.

It is a very much stable. If you have a good amount of calender-based activities, it is good for defining frequency. You can define the calendar internally, then you can do your scanning. Though, it has some triaging features which should finally be fixed.
