Likelihood to Recommend

AlienVault USM

AlienVault USM is well suited for any small/medium businesses as well as big corporations. The reporting and dashboard alone are something I always look for in a USM because it makes it easier for me to gather and find the information I am required to have. If detailed reports are what you are looking for or an easy to navigate dashboard this is the software for you.

Anomali Threat Platform

Being the best threat intelligence platform/tool on the market, it is fantastic in terms of performance and it has taken a lot of burden of curating and weeding through false positives off of our team freeing them up to focus on manual threat hunting and content building.

Cons

AlienVault USM

  • While there are many features, many of them are not very advanced. Vulnerability scanning as an example is extremely simplistic and almost unusable for an enterprise organization. It's just enough to get a program off the ground.
  • Cloud-only deployment model (SaaS) may not fit all organizations. Not all organizations are "cloud friendly".
  • Reporting capabilities out of the box are lack luster. Vulnerability management reporting as an example does not include a single canned report.

We have been using AlienVault USM Appliance for nearly 3 years. The power and flexibility of the device for IPS and IDS is amazing. We are able to identify threats and stop them before damage can be done.

Alternatives Considered

AlienVault USM

Qualys was a well-packaged product that was easy to implement. It was expensive and lacked a lot of the alerting and log searching abilities.The other products listed are not complete and would need to have other services to provide full security coverage.AWS Inspector: Fantastic at scanning base builds. It is not very customizable and is very expensive at scale.
