We are on an annual license for the solution and the pricing could be more affordable.

The cost of the solution should be lower. In our company now, we only have 200 employees. For us, the license fee is kind of expensive. The cost is $30,000 USD for one year to cover WAS (Web Application Security) and the VM (Virtual Machine) security. That price includes maintenance and any consulting with Qualys.

The pricing of Qualys is quite expensive in comparison with the other products in this category that are offering pretty much the same thing. Pricing is one area of the product that can be improved. At this stage of our discovery, we only know the initial cost is high.

Our licensing costs are on a yearly basis. We buy a group of IP addresses we can scan on a yearly basis.

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.
