Qualys VMDR is best suited for larger companies with a very large IT asset footprint. Qualys VMDR is not suited for businesses that are small and upcoming as the price for the tool is very expensive and could be a budget sink if not used properly. In our organization we use the Qualys VMDR dashboard and reporting in order to collect any vulnerabilities we miss during our routine audits to ensure that our environment is stable and protected for attacks.

This is iron but I am giving it 5 star and I can give more If I can do because they are best in support. So once you own this product they will assign a dedicated support for you and when you are under the weather with anything just connect them with anything call, ping or ticket they will come like Genie.

It is distinguished from these programs because the platform provides visualizations of application processes, showing the interplay between various parts and services. Understanding the architecture of complicated apps and finding their weak spots is greatly aided by this.

Qualys VMDR was selected against competitors because of the depth of insight the platform provides. When stacked against other competitors, platforms like Syxsense couldn't produce the same level on insight and reporting like how Qualys VMDR does. Qualys VMDR also does a great job at gathering information about the latest security definitions and using those to analyze our environment to alert of any vulnerabilities. Something that Syxsense couldn't.
