It is well suited for firewall security optimisation, tuning, change management and application discovery.

I've seen Qualysguard work really well for discovery, however you need to have good knowledge of your organization's network topology to ensure Qualys is able to access. In some cases you may end up requiring multiple appliances due to capacity or access contraints. Qualysguard is also very good for verifying patching, server hardening configurations, and other compliance requirements

  • Easier way for VM scan custom profile management. A way to determine if there are duplicate scan profiles created to reduce redundancy with multiple administrators.
  • This may have been addressed, but my previous organization had a lot of difficulties integrating Qualysguard with RSAM.
  • Add trending over time capabilities to dashboard.

My previous organization was in the healthcare industry and we actually had Qualysguard, eEye, and Nessus because our customers required specific scan reports from those solutions. However, from a usability perspective, Qualysguard was the best solution.
