AlienVault OSSIM

If this is your first experience with a SIEM, this one can get you started. Take the time to learn the ins and outs of the product and you'll most likely be satisfied with it if your company is an SMB. If you need compliance reports, OSSIM is too small for you, you'll need to go with USM or USM Anywhere.

Well Suited
  • Well suited for modern programming languages
  • Super good for organisations which do not have a big IT budget to spend on infrastructure
  • Veracode Security consultation is invaluable for teams/Business Units which do not have a dedicated security team
  • These culminate and make it ideal for a startup to quickly benefit from Veracode's setup leanness to get going on Security scanning
Less Appropriate
  • For scanning large legacy applications/software (huge code base, multiple platforms to build, platform specific languages used)

Pros

AlienVault OSSIM

  • Asset discovery. Once installed in a centric, network-accessible server, OSSIM can poll all your endpoints with common protocols (SSH, SNMP, WMI) to detect and discover site-wide assets to monitor. You only need to group them by your own criteria once added to the product.
  • SIEM Event Correlation. You can define quite complex correlation rules to detect possible suspicious or malicious actions or attempts in your network, in order to categorize them as real threats or as false positives, thus streamlining your risk assessment and management.
  • Ease of installation. The entire AlienVault OSSIM is self-contained in an ISO file, which can be burned into a DVD or just mounted in your server of choice (physical or virtual) for deployment. The installation process is automated and quote verbosed, with options for static IP, email messaging and others.
  • Ease of access. Being AlienVault OSSIM a self-contained appliance, it can be accessed via web by any device that supports a web browser, being that desktops, workstation, mobile devices, etc. The OSSIM dashboard and other features are automatically rearranged to adapt to the particular device being in use.

  • The tool seems to have been build for automation.
  • As a security engineer, I prefer the types of findings discovered through DAST or IAST since I can easily verify findings, but the SAST findings may be easier for the developers since it points to the area of code.
  • While it's hard to get developers to take advantage of the consultation calls, I like the fact we can get a highly technical person to walk us through any type of Veracode question.

Cons

AlienVault OSSIM

  • The reports are clunky and a bit tedious to parse through.
  • Sometimes there's so much noise it's hard to tell what a true positive is. There are lots of false ones that trigger alerts but are normal behavior in many environments.

  • Although an improvement to what was there previously, the Analytics section using Looker, could still use some improvement. It does seem that what Veracode has deployed is a very limited version of Looker. While helpful and useful, there seems to be so much more that Looker does (such as dynamic querying), however, the version that Veracode employs doesn't seem to offer this.
  • More user control of administrative functions such as user adding/deleting. Veracode still uses a 'soft delete'/'hard delete' functionality. This can become cumbersome for self-user-administration when a deleted user has to be re-added. A support call is then necessary to have this done.
  • Their idle timeout process needs work. While using the Looker tool, you must save your work every few minutes, as their 'Shark-attack-like' idle timeout will sneak up on you and redirect you away in an instant causing you to lose any unsaved work.

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.

This used to be terrible. Had a difficult time figuring out where information was. Partly this was due to duplicative features, jargon labels, and user navigation. However, in the seven years I've been using the product, it has gotten better.Some of my issues were associated with trying to get scans to work unassisted. Now that scans, once set up, just run periodically, I don't have to deal with that as much. Part of this might also be that I've learned what I need to know about getting around. And still part of this assessment is in comparison to other tools out there that are even worse. Still, they could benefit from an investment in a full useability redesign from someone with an outside perspective, modernizing the UX but also studying and working through the bigger usability concerns. I would love to see better diagnostic tools around getting scans to work so I wouldn't need their tech support people to get scans to work. However, as long as the scheduler keeps going, my needs on this get ever rarer.

AlienVault OSSIM support has been very good. I have not had an issue that they were not able to quickly identify and provide a fix for. They are very quick to respond to open cases and are very knowledgeable in the product, which makes troubleshooting issues fast and solutions are provided quickly.

Veracode Support has been great. Any time I have had a question, they have responded in a prompt manner. I'd say nine out of ten times they are able to resolve any issues that have come up with a short email exchange. For issues requiring a bit more investigation, their consultants are tops.

Alternatives Considered

AlienVault OSSIM

Best bang for the buck. Darktrace did not perform even close to AlienVault. I ran them concurrently. AlienVault consistently found issues that Darktrace didn't pick up, and the Darktrace incidents were false positives. At one point, Darktrace stated I had 2,000 servers and I have 112.FortiSIEM is an awesome package but it's more then I need (or can afford). I would need to add staff, for at least the first year or so, just to get it setup and configured correctly.

Have also evaluated services by GitHub and Snyk. I will say that we continue to use Veracode because of its brand recognition and vendor status in the financial services industry. However if my current company was not operating in this industry I would be tempted to use the less-expensive security analysis services provided by GitHub and Snyk.

Return on Investment

AlienVault OSSIM

  • 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!

  • As I already stated, the cost per application is very high which makes the use of Veracode too expensive for many of out applications.
  • The analysis report is accepted by our clients as a proper SSAT report.
  • Most of out competition does not perform any type of SSAT on the applications they create. This is something we offer and be the only one out there doing this type of testing.
