Likelihood to Recommend

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.

SCCM

While there are other products that can perform functions that SCCM provides, I would still recommend SCCM due to the vast array of features that it provides IT professionals. Most great products that I have used require some configuration to ensure they are a useful tool that we as administrators and managers can utilize to extract data relating to our environment. SCCM can do just that.

Pros

  • Up to this point, I have had no issues integrating with a system we currently have in production. while AlienVault stays on top with plugin updates.
  • Te dashboard is very informative when you figure out how to navigate around it and tweaked to your organization needs.
  • Correlation of events is probably my favorite as I normally only need to jump on the AlienVault dashboard to hammer down on network traffic/activity details.

Cons

  • Walking through all the devices after a Nmap or device discovery scan can be tedious to get the data correct
  • When deploying HIDS, it would be better if the system gave more detail as to the deployment error
  • Offline updating of licenses can be a little time-consuming

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.

Support

AlienVault USM7.6
Based on 24 answers
Support was initially slow but once engaged resolution was fast and efficient.Additional support on other topics was also resolved under the same initial call which helped rather than closing the call off and starting again.Further check backs were carried out before the case was closed so support was very useful throughout.

Implementation

AlienVault USM7.1
Based on 37 answers
Implementation is easy but having easy access to support and professional services is a great help. Getting it up and running is very easy, getting it configured for your specific environment does take a little more work, when you run into any issues support or your professional services provider is always there.

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.

SCCM combines well with the rest of the Microsoft stack and provides tight integration with Azure, etc.
