Qualys Review

As described before Qualys is used to scan periodically the environment in order to check if there are some packages (Linux) or Applications (Windows) outdated, generating reports to the Service Owners, fulfilling what's is expected from us, attending all our expectations regarding the tool. That's why we'd choose Qualys to our organization.

When making the decision to use Qualys Cloud Platform we considered ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus and Kaseya VSA. We moved forward with Qualys Cloud Platform as it had multiple other options and features along with the costing provided as compared to others. Qualys Cloud Platform is a good clean platform if you need to work on the Patching, but lacks support like others.

I have not used other products like qualys cloud platform so I can't comment on how it compares, but I can say that we are happy with this solution that we currently have in place.

Qualys is quite user friendly and gives more easy information related to asset and risk an asset possess. Plus high quality of support as well as ease of use. Qualys is single suite for multiple task for your organization like VMDR rather than using multiple tools for different infra and other. From price side, VMDR is more affordable.

We find that Nessus is a great product, on par if not slightly better compared to Qualys in terms of their pricing model. However, Qualys Cloud Platform has better quality reporting, and offers great tips and suggestions on quickly closing a gap and eliminating the risk. In our organization, both products are great and meet our expectations, but due to pricing, we favor Nessus slightly more.

  • Tenable.sc (formerly SecurityCenter)
As compared with Tenable, Qualys has multiple benefits and features which help ease the management of compliance. Tenable has only vulnerability management, but the Qualys tools landscape comprises a bouquet of tools spanning endpoint security, network security, compliances, and risk assessment. All of these tools are available in a single POD of deployment, reducing manual efforts to deploy and integrate tools.

Qualys Cloud Platform is the best tool available in the market considering the following factors - (1) simplify security operations and lower the cost of compliance (2) Visibility of cloud security configuration issues (3)User friendly interface with flexible options to configure scan polices, schedules and reporting (3) Cost (4) Technical support

Qualys is more user friendly than tenable in view of creating and managing assets, option profiles as well as remediation provision and reporting service. As far as cost of these tools concern, qualys is less costlier than tenable vm tool. Qualys UI is better than tenable. You can change the owner of scan in qualys which is not possible in tenable

We actually moved out of Qualys Web Application Scanning to a different product as we found better options that helped us address the specific concerns we had. The concerns were around scan duration, coverage, and the ability of the scanner to learn an application's nature and put an end to reporting issues that in our case are not a risk.

Beware of Qualys

The VMware Carbon Black suite of products is highly superior than Qualys. This is what our organization has switched to and we couldn't be happier. It feels much more modern and easier to use/naviagte than Qualys. They also offer great threat detection on the end-user's workstations. It is a nice complete package.

Deploying Qualys is really easy, in less than a day you can have everything ready for scanning. Also, Qualys has tons of reports and has tons of extension apps (such as the Asset Management App, which I love).

We really have not used or evaluated other commercial platforms other the Qualys. This was the only comprehensive platform that was in use in the organization for many years. Prior to a greater adoption by IT personnel in the use of Qualys, IT staff would routinely help to prevent vulnerabilities by making sure systems were up-to-date with the latest patches and updates. Also, malware scanning software was routinely used, to help prevent vulnerabilities/compromises from affecting client machines. All of this was a manual process, which was tedious, but Qualys has really helped to make things more efficient, and has helped to make monitoring/remediating vulnerabilities much easier.

Qualysguard gave us the tools we needed that were benificial to our job without us having to do too much manual interaction such as with Nmap, Metasploit , etc. It was a very efficient platform that I would go to again.

  • Nessus and eEye
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.

While all of the alternative solutions mentioned here are great products, the features and usability that Qualys Private Cloud brought to the table worked out to be the best fit for my organization.
