Qualys Web Application Scanning Room for Improvement
Data Specialist at CHUN SHIN LIMITED
We are concerned with the frequency of their virus code updates and reporting that contains false positives. We do not think that the accuracy of the reporting is as good as it should be.
It would be nice if Qualys would provide a solution after analyzing the data for us so we can understand what the cause of a vulnerability is and how to fix it. It would be good enough to provide something like just a download page that describes the problem and the steps to take to resolve the vulnerability.
We are researching open source software because Qualys needs to improve their reports and the documentation for the end-users in resolving scanned issues.
Sometimes the deployment is complicated. It is not so easy to deploy and that should be simplified. Something like Zap or other open-source software is often easier to deploy.
There could be better management and faster scanning. An application may have a lot of URLs and complexity. If there are a couple of applications, that complexity multiplies. It can take three or four days to scan. That's too long. It should be maybe three or four hours.
When comparing this solution to Veracode, Veracode has good interactive features and gives a clear understanding of what the vulnerabilities are, which error line of the vulnerability is on and what can be done. It gives interactive features, whereas this solution does not give a clear understanding of where or how to fix the problem.
In the future, customer support could improve and the output report needs to be simplified for better understanding.View full review »
Sometimes the response time is low because the handshake fails, and then you have to re-login and start again. In the next release, Qualys should include more integration with different applications and single-sign-on protocol.View full review »
