Qualys Cloud Platform - A Complete Solution for all your security needs

Qualys helps companies discover, design, diagonoze,defend and monitor their business assets and corresponding threats .

PROS

The Console . The Qualys console has all the modules like VMDR , PC, SCA, PM , FIM etc. The Same agent can be used to perform all these tasks and scan for vulnerabilities . Its pretty straightforward and easy.

CONS

Reporting format is a bit shaggy if you would ask me ..But having said that , the addition and deletion of controls also has to be more easily doable.

Reason for choosing Qualys Cloud Platform

Ease of Deployment , implementation and configuration . It also helps the users to Integrate Qualys with various other tools and technologies for further enablement.

Qualys VM Review

It is one of the better solutions I have worked with. There are false-positives however this is common to most vulnerability scanners. This is one of the top 3 vulnerability scanners I would recommend. Take the time to understand what you require from the product and start building your tasks and reporting around it. The product will proof extremely valuable.

PROS

The interface is nice and clean. Free online training with labs aids in understanding the product. Easy deployment of agents on both Windows and Linux endpoints.

CONS

Configuring scans was not the easiest of tasks to perform initially. I recommend doing the free online training first before embarking with the deployment. Reporting needs to be improved especially the look and feel of the .PDF reports. Scheduling tasks I found limited as I wanted a particular scan to run 2 days out of the month and was unable to do so. Instead I had to create 2 tasks. Could not find an option to create custom usernames.

Reason for choosing Qualys Cloud Platform

Current Mcafee Vulnerability Product was end-of-life. Pricing and support.

Lots of promises, great marketing. Real quality rather low. Decided to find something better.

That was my first contact with vulnerability management. Perhaps it's a good software for start or for small companies. I was able to recognize my needs and it helped a lot to find a professional solution.

PROS

Lots of features, agent available, flexible pricing. Software as a service, so you don't need any infrastructure.

CONS

Useless unprofessional support, unable to solve any of my issues. They were closing unresolved issues. Lot of false positives. Support couldn't solve them, I got promises that it will be fixed in next release. Awful and unreliable reporting (errors on dashboards etc.). Very expensive. They're not using real cloud but couple of concentrators in different regions. Not useful for global customers. They promise they don't have access to customer data, but they request that to solve problems.

In my oppinion, the best vulnerability management solution in the market

PROS

From my years of experience with vulnerability management solutions, Qualys is the best one in the market. First, it is really easy to set up, specially the cloud solution. In less than few hours you can start scanning your environment. Second, it's vulnerability database is constantly updated with the latest vulnerabilities. Third, it contains tons of apps that extends its capabilities (e.g. Asset management app, web application scanning, PCI compliance monitoring, etc.) ...

CONS

The price tag is not the cheapest one. Their licensing model is per IP on the scope, not per live IPs. So for example, if you have three /24 networks with one server each, you will be paying to scan 765 IPs (255*3) instead of only 3 IPs.

Reason for choosing Qualys Cloud Platform

The implementation time for qualys is way lower than any other tool. Also, the amount of out-of-the-box reports is way higher than any other product, and their vulnerability database is constantly updated.

Vulnerability scanning

Overall it has been very positive and we will continue to use it. It has helped us greatly lock down our environment.

PROS

Qualys gives high-quality reports in an easy to read format. The agent has been easy to install and has not caused any issues.

CONS

We have had some instances where scan attempts ended up causing confusion or application outages when they were not designed to handle the scans.

Qualys VM

They need to make the product better .. Focus ion ease of use. Get a focus group going.

PROS

Agent deployment is simple. The software offers much if configured right. I dislike the add on services model.

CONS

False positives. If a later software update rectifies an older vulnerability then there is no need to show asset is vulnerable. Vuln that shows up in Asset View is different in Vuln View.. Why? Salesperson quit after the sale which sucked. Replacement helped but was not focused on us.

Great cloud based vulnerability scanning tool.

Great vulnerability scanner to provide accurate vulnerability findings.

PROS

Qualysguard performs scan based on IP addresses rather than URL’s. It easily accessible from anywhere as its as cloud based scanner. Qualysguard supports scheduling of the scan for target system based on particular time and date and it also acknowledges and share the mail once the scan is completed. It can also perform the scan and give vulnerabilities as per compliance standards such as PCI DSS.

CONS

Qualysguard doesn’t support scan for URL’s as we only need to provide IP address of the URL to perform the scan. This tool might be costly for small scale organizations.

A great VM Solution

Once you have the software set up, it is wonderful to use. There are improvements that can be made but this is a great solution for the money. Happy with the product so far.

PROS

The solution is very detailed in what information it collects. The Cloud agent runs as a service on the endpoints and references back to the cloud periodically (the interval is customizable). The GUI is very nice and they are updating things constantly. It is easy to see our Security stance from the different modules.

CONS

There is no MSI file to deploy the software via GPO! Also, for me, the assetview module shows a different number of assets than the VMDR asset tab. Why there is a difference, I don't know.

Useful Vulnerabilty Management option

PROS

Detailed explanations and possible resolutions for vulnerabilities that are detected by the Cloud Agents.

CONS

I have used other solutions as well on the same machines and they seem to detect quite a few different vulnerabilities, it seems neither give a rather complete list, so it's a good idea to use multiple solutions from different vendors with a different focus to get a clear insight in the ones that are classified as higher risks.

Qualys the best vulnerability scanner

Based on the experience I have with Qualys, it is very impressive to capture the vulnerabilities, this compiles a complete report of the risks that your infrastructure has, in addition the patches have very precise information that allows you to carry out the remediation very effectively. The analyzes are detailed and very complete, it works very well to carry out the compliance stages of PCI, CIS, etc... Providing a great guarantee that periodically your organization has an armored infrastructure.

PROS

In the firts instance we could see its operation inside a beast and we were amazed, its different configurations to make scans allows to obtain much more complete results than other programs. Qualys as a pentesting tool allows you to analyze those areas of greatest risk within your organization to remedy them. The ability to perform scans for a particular plugin is one of the features that other software should envy to Qualys. Your reports have a very detailed information that allows you to quickly identify vulnerabilities.

CONS

I have no negative comments, it has worked very well in the company and with our allies.

A great Cyber Security Tool

PROS

I love the ease of use especially when you're managing multiple sites. The Qualys dashboard has to be the best hands down

CONS

It gets a bit complicated when it comes to the set up and deployment. And another thing was the delay in endpoint scanning, it takes a while for the update information from the endpoints

Best vulnerabilities management tool

PROS

Qualys is easily the best VM tool available because of many features like easy deployment, good UI, great customer support and outstanding VM features especially scanning, asset management, reporting etc. Container security and policy compliance modules work like a charm.

CONS

There is no offline deployment in qualys, so for air gapped environments Qualys cannot be used.
