AlienVault USM

AlienVault USM Anywhere is a great SIEM and if you need to deploy a SaaS solution then it is suited very well. It works very well for us being 100% AWS and integrates well with our toolset and AWS features. The Open Threat Intelligence (OTX) is perfect for providing context on events and feeding our incident response processes.

When you have teams of people, both internally and externally, who need to collaborate on documents and communicate about a project, MS Teams is perfect! The teams can even be fluid, as you can add and subtract members at any time.If you don't have computers that are constantly connected to the internet, 365 Business may not work for you.

Pros

  • AlienVault enables integration with external technologies, thereby broadening its scope and possibilities.
  • AlienVault has a dashboard customization and reporting scheme that makes it flexible to query your data, allowing you to model the tool according to your needs.
  • AlienVault will make you forget the need to consult some information on AWS Cloudtrail. It extracts the data from there and delivers in a much more efficient way.
  • With a single tool you can monitor your cloud and on-premises environment.

  • Keeping the whole company updated on the latest app versions. Cuts down on upgrading time and version control.
  • Teams is a great way to share info and documents with fluctuating working groups, both internally and externally.
  • Allowing access to current applications on any device with the same login.

Cons

  • At times I do find navigating the dashboard for very specific functions to be difficult.
  • For entry level security analysts or administrators I feel can get overwhelmed with the amount of data available from a single platform (in a good way)
  • helpful to understand Linux for certain tasks

  • Communicating with an external customer who does not have the Microsoft platform can result in difficulty in integration across the platforms and thus increasing communication difficulties.

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.

Implementation

AlienVault USM7.1
Based on 37 answers
The best recommendation I can offer is understand the system that is being installed. Knowing how to configure and specific expectations that you expect from the machine. I would say to watch the tutorials and the online video's, get yourself involved with the community forum and ask the questions if you do not understand.Our company did not make the best choice on the computer that the service was installed on and it has led to some adverse effects that did not appear until now, almost 2 years later and needing to re-install the entire system all over again.If you need the help, ask for it. The technical support team at alienvault and community forum members are always there to answer questions.

Alternatives Considered

I felt that AlienVault performed the SIEM aspect as well as the one mentioned. My opinion has always been that the SIEM product is as good as the person using it is experienced. I selected AlienVault because of the many added features.

I haven't actually come across any other package as worthy as Microsoft 365 Business. I admire the way it gives access to all the applications at one place, like Microsoft Office, Microsoft Powerpoint, Microsoft Access, etc.

Return on Investment

  • Having Microsoft 365 Business has been invaluable for the creation of documents and communication across our team and to external customers.
  • The calculation of an ROI is difficult but without Microsoft 365 Business I believe that it would be alot harder/slower to get our job done.
