Pros

  • Being a part of the Open Source community, open source tools are always a big plus for me.
  • Being a simple straightforward tool, it does a great job especially with the asset management piece built into it.
  • Straightforward
  • Open Threat Exchange(OTX) gives a straightforward live threat intel feed to work off.

Cons

  • It's a free product! Yes, it doesn't have all the capabilities of the USM anywhere, but it does a great job. Can't really complain.

  • Licensing can be complex and is fairly expensive. I did not research other ITAM solutions as we use the entire Ivanti suite to see how pricing compares, but it does seem expensive.
  • Be careful when you are building you CMDB module in the Ivanti Service Desk tool, we found the hard way that create custom CI processes requires an ITAM license.
  • We have submitted a few bugs and the resolution from support seems slow. I find this is common with many vendors, but was hoping for better resolution times with Ivanti.

Usability

AlienVault OSSIM8.0
Based on 1 answer
AlienVault OSSIM is far easy to use and manage - provided you know what you're doing. As any SIEM application, there is some background knowledge required in order to take advantage of the product's functionalities, such as the log correlation and analysis. Other than that, the application is quite usable and robust.

Alternatives Considered

AlienVault OSSIM has the upper ante in initial deployment price, being that it's open source. Also, with perhaps the exception of SolarWinds, it has a lower optimal requirements for onsite deployment, hence your OPEX won't be hit very hard by investing in new hardware to suit the appliance. The correlation engine is somewhat more robust that their counterparts in LogRhythm and SolarWinds, and the IDS (both NIDS and HIDS) are more reliable as well in terms of results. Finally, although Tenable SecurityCenter is more robust in dashboards, alerts and reports, it comes short in front of OSSIM in terms of real-time IDS and SIEM correlation.

We brought the CA suite of ITAM tools in previously and the project failed. We selected Ivanti because of a previous relationship and we already owned the Service Desk product. It was an easy decisions and we needed specific integration with the CMDB module of Service Desk, which the IT Asset Mgmt Suite provided us.

Return on Investment

  • The only investment here is setting it up and I think seeing it's performance it's a fantastic tool and has a great positive ROI!

  • We have seen tremendous ROI with custom processes set up to manage the lifecycle of our assets. This was a huge void for us previously and now we can see when assets are coming/going and when they should be retired.
  • Integration with other apps via API has allowed us to automate manual tasks and streamline processes.
  • Tie-ins with the CMDB function of Service Desk have allowed us to create dynamic workflows to manage the lifecycle of assets and other related assets. Very powerful use case.
