Qualys™ Vulnerability Scanner
Qualys™ and Security Scanned by Trust Guard® both have a similar purpose: To protect sensitive data from hackers by scanning websites for security holes or vulnerabilities. However, their methods are different.
Trust Guard's Security Scanned service provides top-of-the-line PCI Scanning. They combine this service with their innovative website verification process to create additional security options. By verifying the businesses physical address, phone number, and support email, Trust Guard ensures that companies are honestly and accurately portraying themselves to the buying public. As part of both the PCI Scanning, and the business verification process, Trust Guard provides Trust Seals for visible proof that a website has been scanned, and verified. These additional services increase consumers trust which generates sales. Qualys also offers Secure Seals but not for PCI Scanning, and they do not offer business verification. Instead, Qualys seals are only for SSL Certificate verification, Malware, and Perimeter scanning.
Another important difference between Qualys and Security Scanned by Trust Guard is product usability. Qualys is a tool that requires technical knowledge because it is a do-it-yourself product. It's one more thing busy merchants and staff have learn and worry about daily. Trust Guard, unlike Qualys, does the scanning for the merchants to give them a pain-free security solution.
