McAfee sells Qualys products?
Ok - I just had to pick myself up off the ground!  McAfee has been touting that they had the premier vulnerability management scanning tools for PCI.  Now they have to use Qualys.  HA!  Also - my colleague just told me to look for them on the PCI website , and sure enough McAfee is not listed as an ASV or Approved Scan Vendor.  Why is it even called McAfee ? Smoke and mirrors folks.
