  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Qualys, Inc. is a provider of cloud security and compliance solutions that enable organizations to identify security risks to their information technology infrastructures help protect their IT systems and applications from cyber-attacks. The Company's solutions are provided through its QualysGuard Cloud Platform. It offers products for vulnerability management, policy compliance, web application scanning, malware detection, and associated security products. Qualys, Inc. is headquartered in Redwood City, California. " (11/6/2019)
  • 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We are initiating coverage of QLYS with a Neutral rating. All metrics currently show positive trends around the adoption rate of its Cloud Agents and the Cloud Platform, and even the attach rate of its Cloud Apps show a positive trend. However, its total revenue growth has decelerated over the past three quarters to mid-teens, increasing the risk that it may not achieve its 2021 target revenue growth in the low-to-mid 20s. We also believe that QLYS is undergoing a risky sales transition as it shifts its sales efforts to target C-level executives to better leverage its platform-based growth strategy. This is different from its traditional sales approach that primarily targeted security technicians." (9/9/2019)
