Armor

Armor gives you what you need to be successful regardless of technical ability. If you can maintain the systems yourself, you are definitely ahead of the game with their service. If you're not prepared to configure and maintain the systems, they do a pretty good job of getting it set up during the onboarding process so that you don't need to dig into the technical guts too much. If you find yourself in over your head, their support staff can handle it for you in most cases.

Qualys WAS

It does have its pros but they are outweighed by the cons. There are better scanners out there. WAS gets stuck at scanning a single page for such a long time that it barely covers any part of the application before reaching the 24-hour limit and concluding testing. It could be also because of the nature of our application, but I would expect dynamic scanners to be a bit smarter than this.

  • It is integrated with the Qualys Cloud Platform, which is our company-wide vulnerability management solution.

Cons

Armor

  • Authentication and access against the secure messaging portal is overkill when the response I'm logging in to see merely says, "yes, we have your message. An agent will respond shortly". There should be an option to receive updates like this through email.
  • The online portal that allows us to clone servers is very slow to respond. More than once I've spun up an additional server due to the lack of visual feedback on the initial request.
  • The web application firewall does not seem to be sophisticated enough to differentiate between logged in administrators and end users. We use a CMS system which allows admins to create scripts. These often get barred by the WAF even though they are not malicious.

  • Sometimes support can be a bit slow off the mark but in general it is good.
  • The scans can take longer than anticipated.
  • The reports can take a lot of customizing.

Approximately 50% of all messages we receive are automated. Either that an agent will be assigned, has been assigned, or a ticket is closed. I'd like to see more 'real' interaction, and less box ticking, though I appreciate process has to be followed. That's the one point off. Everything else is very good.

They had a support page within the WAS to report any concerns or seek help. But the UI of that is not smooth. Regardless support staff were pretty responsive and helpful. They scheduled calls to understand and address our problems. Email support is good as well.

The Qualys Web Application Scanning (WAS) is integrated with our Qualys Cloud Platform so that we can have all the vulnerabilities in one single place. Also, the reporting capabilities of the Qualys Web Application Scanning (WAS) is way higher than any other vulnerability management tool in the market (especially in terms of compliance reports, such as PCI and SOX).
