QualysGuard Enterprise (2008)
Information security's biggest vendors may be claiming a stake in the vulnerability management market, but privately held Qualys isn't having any of it.
Taking the top prize in this category for the second consecutive year, QualysGuard Enterprise specializes in automated vulnerability identification and remediation for large organizations, namely those with thousands of devices across segmented and remote networks.
Readers once again gave the product high marks across the board, lauding its ability to quickly and accurately identify vulnerabilities, breadth of applications and devices covered, and the vendor's service and support.
Like many vulnerability management products, QualysGuard is spreading its wings beyond strict vulnerability management with a strong emphasis on policy compliance, specifically with new features to enable documentation, enforcement and audit for internal security policies, industry regulations and government mandates.
