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.

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.

Reasons 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.

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.

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.

Reasons for Choosing Qualys Cloud Platform

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

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.
