Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Qualys VM is very stable.""There are many features. Its reliability, ease of installation, ease of use, and the richness of the information provided are the most valuable features.""Great web application security for scanning.""The initial setup is straightforward.""Intuitive and easy to use.""The initial setup was good. We didn't have any problems with it.""It's a good product. After the scan our internet works well. It scans our security posture.""The most recent is VMDR, which provides a comprehensive overview of how to detect, patch, and remediate specific vulnerabilities."

"The most valuable feature is the SecOps because they have our back and they help us with the reports... It's like having an extension of your team. And then, it grows with you.""Technical support is very helpful."

Cons
"The reporting needs improvement. It should generate much more stuff like field reports.""Certain integration factors between different options could be improved.""Could use additional security for the app.""We are moving away from Qualys to Defender ATP because I find that Defender ATP is much better at prioritizing the vulnerabilities that I should be looking at.""The ability to manage user accounts and give rights to the operator to know about abnormalities of applications is something that needs improvement.""I would like to see more accuracy in detections, better reporting capabilities, and better dashboard download capabilities.""Qualys currently does not have any features for scanning SCADA, IoT, and Industrial Control Systems.""Reports were lacking somewhat on the customization side."

More Qualys VM Cons →

"They could give a few more insights into security groups and recommendations on how to be more effective. That's getting more into the AWS environment, specifically. I'm not sure if that's Threat Stack's plan or not, but I would like them to help us be efficient about how we're setting up security groups. They could recommend separation of VPCs and the like - really dig into our architecture. I haven't seen a whole lot of that and I think that's something that, right off the bat, could have made us smarter.""The compliance and governance need improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "They have recently changed the pricing model, which is now better than it was before."
  • "It is different for every company, but for us, it's every three years."
  • "Qualys is cheaper and more affordable than other solutions."
  • "The pricing and licensing for Qualys could be improved."
  • "We do see over $100,000 in terms of price, for mid-size programs. You likely will pay more than $100,000 without any discount. It is a bit pricey."
  • "I used to work there, so I never paid for the product. As an employee, we get a lifetime license for personal use, and that's what I'm using. It is a comprehensive platform, so there is a lot more to it. There could be other solutions that are probably a little bit cheaper, but it depends on what people need. Different people have different needs. It offers many things on the same platform. If you add all the things up, it should be cheaper, but I have not done any analysis specifically."

  • "What we're paying now is somewhere around $15 to $20 per agent per month, if I recall correctly. The other cost we have is SecOps."

    Top Answer: 
    The solution offers one set cost and then the cost by agents. We're thinking of putting it on a few test servers and dev and a few servers in QA and then running whatever changes we have there before… more »
    Top Answer: 
    The compliance and governance need improvement. You can have rules that are HIPAA or PCI or CIS compliant, however, we're actually looking for a tool that would do that - something that would act like… more »
