    Default Qualys Certified Vulnerability Management Expert

    I came across this suite of tools very recently and had the opportunity to attend their One day class on Vulnerability Management with respect to their tool for the same use.

    Was surprised that the class happened in India in the first place. Second they dont charge a cent for the class or the exam.

    Class and exam can be taken online. Cert is also available online once you clear the exam.

    They have other classes as well such the Policy Compliance , Advanced Vulnerability Management , Web Application Scanning and others.

    Kindly check their website and register.

    https://community.qualys.com/community/training

    All classes are available online and some of them are in person too. Register early to get confirmed seats !

    Please do post your experiences on the exam and the study path that you have chosen.

    Cheers

    Took the vulnerability management class and really enjoyed it. Especially, since ALL of their courses are free (meals and snacks too ). Took and passed the exam too. Great day away from the office and I got some good training to boot.

    The exam is simple as long as you take notes and pay attention. I recently took the Vulnerability management exam and passed 100%. The platform itself is intuitive enough, and you still have your lab access during the exam so you can go and reference it if needed.

    I passed both of them- Vulnerability Management and PCI Compliance. Do you happen to know other free certification exams like these?

    I took the online class and followed up with the exam. If you are a experienced qualys user, the class will be 80% review and the exam will be a breeze.

    Nice find. I applied for a few jobs but they specifically wanted somebody with Qualys experience. I tried the free trial but they never sent me the access code. I emailed them but never got a response and by then the job listing was gone.

    You need to create an account on the Qualys training and certification website. They provide you the material and different online or self paced courses. I'm actually going to start this in the next few weeks as I'll be implementing Qualys VM in our environment. I've used it before, very well thought solution from what I've seen so far.

    Just passed this. This is an open book exam. Very easy, I have some experience with Qualys and will be more heavily involved going forward, thats the reason I went for it. Plus, its a solution that is widely used and I've seen postings requiring Qualys experience. They do rpovide you with a 2 weeks trial account to practice. I didnt use this as it takes 2 business day to be setup, my current experience was enough to pass it. I will be looking at the rest of the Qualys suite also. Bonus, the cert provides 8 CPE's for CISSP.
