Overall Satisfaction with Qualysguard

We used Qualysguard to automate testing of our environment for vulnerabilities. We used several groups to run the testing some with longer and more extensive tests. Mostly this was done in two phases, once before a resource was deployed for use and then several times after over duration to ensure any vulnerabilities were caught.
  • User setup for multiple groups
  • Ease of automation, set it and forget it
  • Reporting features were a huge plus
  • Took time to learn the UI
  • Could be cumbersome for first time users
  • Not much online documentation that was useful
  • I was not involved in the purchase but the personal ROI really helped make my job quicker and more efficient.
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.
Of many of the other vulnerability testing suites I used, this offered the most robust features and, once you learned the UI, was a go-to tool. The reporting was very nice for not only us technical but for reports for management as well that were easy to understand and prioritize fixes.
