AlienVault USM

AlienVault USM provides solid insight into the attempted connections to our organization's network resources, this includes printers that may have been properly configured. We recently discovered a third party provided Workgroup printer which had a network port that was misconfigured and allowing probing from the outside (actually was hit by probes from the far east as well as the communist block countries.) This report allowed us to clear the issue and protect resources.

MobileIron

MobileIron makes it very easy to access company assets securely like email, access to portals and sites, access to storage, intranet web applications, and shared drives using company mobile devices or even "Bring Your Own Device". I imagine that it would not be as beneficial to access and log into servers or virtual servers due to potential lag issues.

Cons

  • AlienVault is excellent at finding issues/exploits and providing the information necessary for forensics. It could be nice if instructions for remedies could be provided as well.

  • File share
  • Ease of setup for non-technical users

At 162 devices there would need to be a huge issue or feature that MobileIron is missing to take on the task of moving to a new MDM. Currently that is not the case. Support has been very good in answering questions or addressing issues if they arise. In all honesty MobileIron just works and we don't have many calls on the delivery of email and other exchange data to devices.

Usability

The system is great in turns of functionality but in terms of being user friendly and usability for the average person it is very hard to understand and wil take a lot of training.

I have not had a single issue with the alienvault support staff. Any issue or question that we had, especially in the beginning during the installation phase the support staff was readily available via phone and email to help us. I am very happy with the decision we made to go with alienvault.

It is online based, after learning content you can take a test and if you don't pass you get two other chances to pass. Once you pass the test you can print out your certification or save it

Initial deployment was great compared to all the research I had read about deploying SIEM solutions. The basic setup gives excellent information about what is occurring on your enterprise network.

Alternatives Considered

AlienVault Unified Security Management is just a better integration of the tools needed for monitoring your environment. Adding to the polish of the product, the support behind the software has been great.

Unfortunately MobileIron is the only application that I have ever used for the purpose of using mobile devices and securely accessing intranet information. However, I would find it very hard for any other application to work any better than MobileIron because of its ease of use and configuration. MobileIron was chosen for our company because it is the best.

Return on Investment

  • Application tunneling allows users to connect to their internal applications securely through MobileIron's infrastructure, rather than a typical VPN connection.
  • Exchange servers are no longer left open for active sync connections from everyone.
  • Document control of sensitive information prevents users from exfiltrating data.
