I easily generated reports that showed problems and used QualysGuards new report formats to see trends among server vulnerabilities. Unlike other vulnerability assessment tools, which focus on large-enterprise networks, Qualys provides scanning services and vulnerability patch information aimed at medium-size companies, with subscription-based services that start at $995 per monitored IP address per year.
I was impressed with the level of detail in the QualysGuard vulnerability reportsthe system not only pointed out weaknesses but also directed me to possible fixes.
