Feature Comparison

          1. Vulnerability Management

SecOps Solution: SecOps Solution offers comprehensive vulnerability management capabilities, enabling organisations to identify, assess, and remediate vulnerabilities across different platforms and environments. It offers 10x faster VAPT scanning capabilities across multiple platforms, including networks, cloud environments, and containerized applications. It provides automation and customization options to streamline the vulnerability management process.

Qualys: On the other hand, Qualys also offers a vulnerability management platform, but the major concern is it demands a heightened level of asset exposure for scanning. Also, the VMDR seems outdated, very old, slow, and hard to navigate, some areas are in a newer version, and some are still in the mid-2000s.

          2. Reporting and Analytics

SecOps Solution: SecOps Solution offers detailed robust reporting and analytics features, providing real-time visibility into an organization's security posture. It enables highly customizable summary reports and supports exporting reports in various formats along with compliance reporting, facilitating informed decision-making.

Qualys: Qualys does not provide a detailed report of the scan and a large number of false positives and false negatives can be a concern with Qualys VMDR. The reporting component in Qualys is very time-consuming to do simple stuff. Also sometimes the Qualys score for a vulnerability will be very different than the CVSS score so it's hard to know which one to base things on and which may be more reasonable for our environment.

          3. Automation and Integration

SecOps Solution: SecOps Solution provides one dashboard to manage all your clients and automated Patching which reduces manual effort, deploys critical updates timely, minimizes vulnerability exposure and it gets easily integrated with SOC/SIEM solutions.

Qualys: Qualys does have some automation capabilities, but connectivity to their SaaS console can get really slow. And for Integration getting support is painful you need to open a ticket and it will take months for response and still it might not get resolved.

          4. Compliance Management

SecOps Solution: SecOps Solution incorporates compliance management capabilities for CIS Level 1&2, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and ISO 27001 & more, helping organizations assess and maintain compliance with regulatory requirements. It offers customizable compliance policies, authenticated scans which are required for meeting compliance standards, and reporting functionalities.

Qualys: Qualys includes compliance management features, but for compliance standards authenticated scans are required, and for this Qualys agents seem unreliable and it's very difficult to perform an authenticated scan.

          5. Scalability and Deployment

SecOps Solution: SecOps Solution is designed to cater to organizations of varying sizes, from small businesses to large enterprises. Its cloud-based deployment ensures scalability and ease of management.

Qualys: Qualys provides a cloud-based solution but the pricing of Qualys VMDR is higher compared to other vulnerability management solutions which is not suitable for all sizes of companies and the deployment can be a daunting task.
