What are the Similarities between
Qualys™ and Trust Guard®?
There are two main similarities between the two vulnerability scanning services:
First, both services do External Perimeter Scans, Internal Malware Scans, and SSL scans. These are the 3 most important things you can do to protect your website.
- External perimeter scanning, also known as PCI Scanning identifies and blocks over 75,000 known doorways into your system, helping to create a hardened shell of protection around your servers.
- Internal Malware Scanning uses artificial intelligence to look for suspicious or malicious patterns across millions of data points on the internet. It then uses that same technology to scan your files, and if suspicious code suddenly shows up in one of your files, Malware Scanning can detect it, so you can quickly investigate and remove it before any serious problems or issues arise.
- SSL Validation Scanning checks your existing SSL Certificate to make sure that it is active on your website. Often times, SSL certificates can expire, putting you and your customers at risk. By scanning your SSL, you can be alerted before it expires, or if happens to be removed or inactivated, so you can take appropriate action.
What are the 3 Main Differences between
Qualys™ and Trust Guard®?
The Size of companies they target.
The first difference between the two companies is that Qualys primarily targets large, enterprise-level companies. In addition to Vulnerability Scanning, they also have additional features and tools that larger companies must have in order to effectively protect their entire organization across multiple locations, systems, and networks.
Trust Guard on the other hand, specifically targets small to medium-sized businesses who don’t have systems large enough to justify full-time cyber security staff or need additional network monitoring.
The Price of their services.
The second difference is that because Qualys targets enterprise-level companies, their pricing is much higher. This is to be expected since they have to have a much larger infrastructure in order to be able to handle the needs of Fortune 500 companies.
Trust Guard on the other hand, is able to focus on providing the 3 main Vulnerability Scanning services that most small to medium companies (processing less than 6 million transactions per year), need in order to provide comprehensive protection for both their website and their business.
Cyber and Breach Response Insurance.
One very unique feature of Trust Guard that no other vulnerability scanner has, including Qualys, is Cyber Insurance and Breach Response Insurance. Every Trust Guard account comes with $100,000 of actual Cyber Insurance to protect your business should anything ever happen.
Plus, you also receive $100,000 in Breach Response Insurance, which covers things like Cyber Lawyers, Forensics Teams, PR Firms to help successfully guide you through a breach so that your business can recover and get back to 100% as quickly as possible.
So, which Vulnerability Scanning service
should I use?
If you’re a small to medium business (SMB) who processes less than 6 million transactions a year, and wants an affordable, comprehensive security solution with Cyber Insurance and Breach Response Insurance to fully protect both your website and your business, then Trust Guard is the ideal solution.
On the other hand, if you’re a larger, enterprise-level company with multiple locations and an in-house security team, then you probably need a more robust, technical solution like Qualys.
