Pros
"The most valuable features are vulnerability scanning, policy compliance scanning, and tablet for web application scanning.""Technical support is great and we've never really had a problem.""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.""The initial setup was good.

Cons
"Could use additional security for the app.""I would like to see more accuracy in detections, better reporting capabilities, and better dashboard download capabilities.""Sometimes we face a problem with accessing the tool and not getting an expected result. From a technology point of view, they need to look into this.""Sometimes the scanning can get overwhelmed and start to drag when a lot of users are trying to scan at once.""Qualys VM should improve its methodology.""Qualys does have an on-prem solution, but it is very expensive.""Qualys VM's scanner doesn't pick up every vulnerability, so we have to use multiple scanners to cover that gap.""The reporting and dashboards could improve in Qualys VM. However, they have improved since the previous versions."

"The compliance and governance need improvement.""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."

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."
  • "There is a license for the use of this solution. We pay annually instead of monthly to receive a better discount on the price."
  • "Qualys VM is better suited for medium to large companies because the price can be too much for smaller customers."
  • More Qualys VM Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "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."
