"Good product, a bit behind with modern technologies"

What do you like best?

Very good product, quite easy to use and it was very easy to arrange a demo. They offer free training and there's a lot of documentation. So you can start with your project with minimum set up. I used Qualys before as a consultant for different projects for small businesses and startups and I can see they still are offering a very good quality product.

I took the training some time ago and it was quite useful to get up to speed in no time.

We also like some free tools such as the SSL check and basic scanner which can be used at any time just signing up.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately it's still not very well suited for very modern technology. It doesn't read inside Docker containers which our company is using with a micro-services architecture. Additionally, the Web-App Vulnerability Scanner had problems logging in with one-page JS applications. At the end it can still login, however the process was more cumbersome than other tools we tested.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would thoroughly recommend setting up a full demo and considering future applications. If you speak with your customer representative they can even extend the demo for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a fast company growing quickly it's important to implement a security tool that's equally dynamic and adapts fast to the new threats. Good support and documentation are also key elements to choose the appropriate solution. We liked the multi-paradigm of Qualys, so we can cover different threats with the Qualys Suite.

"Qualys ROCKS!!!"

What do you like best?

Qualys is Very user friendly, a little training goes a long way, its easy to configure and run scans and the reporting is clean descriptive and easy to comprehend. You will see real results using Qualys and every issue has very clear documentation on what the potential risk and possible solution is. This is a great security tool and is capable of automatically running scans on a schedule or new patch release. Cost of patching is also considered in the reporting and every issue is listed with patch information. Issues without patches may take more time and potentially cost more to resolve. Qualys allows for custom reporting and configuration, you could set it up to only tell you about issues that you find relevant while ignoring the rest, yet you would still have access to see all issues if needed.

What do you dislike?

The only thing i dislike, working in a large team using the same tool, Qualys does not keep record of when and who changed something in the environment, and in one occasion made it very difficult for me to know what exactly had happened to a particular scan.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it, security is important and this tool will help immensely. Just make sure you know what your wanting it for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The company I'm working for is using Qualys for a multitude of projects and workstation environments including the rollover to windows 10 OS and the typical and approved user applications that may be installed after imaging. For the internal projects Qualys provides a vulnerability check to those in house applications and allows for the development of projects with top end security measures in mind.

"Qualys review for applications in business"

What do you like best?

As other users have pointed out, it is very user friendly. It only took a little bit of time to get up to speed.The vulnerability scans is what my business was mostly using it for. Each scan provides a very in depth analysis on a potential risk is, and it also lists out potential solutions. You can also set it up to run scans at specific times or create a schedule. It has many features that make it a great tool to use.

What do you dislike?

Scanning can take some time to finish. Multiple users working with this tool can cause issues, as it doesn't keep a record of any changes made to the environment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keeping information secure is important and this tool will help with that.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our business has used this tool for multiple different security applications. It is important to have a tool that will adapt to new vulnerabilities and provide solutions to resolve them quickly.

"Qualys PenetrationTesting"

What do you like best?

We used Qualys for Penetration testing and it worked out well for us. They offered external penetration testing and internal as well. For the internal pen tests, they provided a device that we added to our network that would look for specific known ports that were open.

What do you dislike?

Have an additional device in our network was not ideal.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give them a shot

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used Qualys to ensure our environment was up to snuff for PCI compliance. We benefited from this information by being able to provide the penetration test information to our PCI auditors.

"Something I would recommend my fellow developers"

What do you like best?

Overall, the Qualys product peforms well and does what we would expect reliably. The vendor support of the on-premise infrastructure has been very good. Breadth of functionality and customization is very good. Overall performance and result in consistency is prevalent.

What do you dislike?

their customer support to address issues with vulnerability signatures and feature enhancement requests is on the lower end of the scale

Recommendations to others considering the product

Improve customer support

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We deployed the AWS appliance for doing security and compliance scans of ec2 instances. If you follow their documentation exactly everything went very smooth. Getting the technology deployed is only the first step. Team and remediation disipline is much more important and requires more focus. Overall the product seemed to integrate with the AWS API well.
