Re: Qualys



Everyone seems to have missed what I think was his/her's point. He
asked the *technical* contact if they had every deployed in a Class A
environment (aka 16 million hosts), and he/she responded 'sure we've
supported clients with 60 thousand hosts!' (which isn't even a class b
btw), and the technical ignorance of their technical person is what
closed the door for ncircle. Or at least that is what I get out of his
email, not 'please tell me how i should deploy a vulnerability scanner
in my network' but rather a dialogue on the technical competence of
the employee's.

Greetings,

nCircle came to do a demonstration for my team once. I work in an
enviornment that has a full routable class A. I asked the technical
guy there if they had ever deployed their appliances in a Class A
enviornment and he said sure we have supported clients with 60K hosts.
That was the end of our consideration.

How long ago did you give it a demo? That sounds like it must have been
a good while ago, or perhaps there was a mis-understanding of some sort.

For folks with class A networks, something that big you'd deploy
multiple units of our product as per our product architecture and
design, as most orgs of that kind of size have done.

If you like, I could put you in touch with someone inside the company
that could discuss any issues you had. If I may ask, who did you opt to
go with instead of nCircle?

Cheers,
Byron
