  • Really good and up to date vulnerability database
  • Good reporting capabilities
  • PCI ready
  • Price tag
  • Have the license based on live IPs, not on entire subnets, so then you pay for the exactly amount of servers you have.

  • Cloud-based management.
  • Detailed info about the findings: reason, effect, risk, mitigations, etc.
  • Clear UI.
  • Additional modules can be added to the same management interface.(single point of management).
  • Notices some findings which were not clear why they appear(suspected false positive).
  • Working with Qualys support(for example due to the previous point) wasn't the best experience. the response was very slow.
  • Qualys limit the daily API requests. In case you need more, it will cost.

  • It really does well at vulnerability scanning, which it is well known for. It's accuracy at finding vulnerabilities is top notch, more so than a lot of other vulnerability tools out there. In an organization/company you want this kind of accuracy at finding vulnerabilities in your network/endpoints
  • It is very good at managing endpoints on a consistent basis, meaning you can add endpoints to Qualys and have the platform scan/track/protect for vulnerabilities on an ongoing basis, without user intervention
  • It does really well at separating out and identifying what levels of criticality each vulnerability should fall into. This way, an organization/company can attack the more critical vulnerabilities first
  • Can be slow at times, namely when scanning endpoints. Scans can take a while, and results may not be immediately known
  • For IT personnel that have never used Qualys before, it can take some time to learn the platform, and how to actually use it. Some sort of training or consulting documentation on the product would be beneficial, as it's a more complicated platform
  • Automatic password resets for user/admin login to the platform can be frustrating, as this can happen occasionally, without user/admin awareness
  • False positives can also be detected, sometimes at a high rate. Need to lessen that as much as possible

  • API Task scheduling and configuration
  • Threat database updates through authenticated scanning of Windows and Unix operating systems
  • Reporting capabilities
  • The API query can only support limited number of connections in a time period without calling support to request more, I would suggest removing that limitation.

  • Discovery of assets on a network.
  • Identifying infrastructure security configuration flaws for a number of different OS types.
  • Easy UI to navigate.
  • 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.
