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.

MobileIron

For use-cases where owners need to manage a medium to large collection of mobile devices using a web interface and expect to modify device settings/apps weekly/monthly, MobileIron may be useful. For clients who need to use custom API's to upload apps, or who need to modify many devices every day, MobileIron may not be sufficiently reliable.

Pros

  • AlienVault USM Anywhere is easy to deploy with their cloud-based model and deploying the required agents on-prem (or in the cloud) is quick and easy.
  • Custom rules allow for alerting based on content from events and you can even trigger agents in response to threats, shutting down computers or grabbing forensic info for incident response.
  • USM Anywhere also takes care of reporting for ISO and PCI, allowing you to pull reports for auditors at a moment’s notice.
  • With many integrations out-of-the-box, you can pull in all the data from products you use and other sources, such as Amazon CloudWatch Logs.

Cons

  • We would love to be able to create custom rules based on a series of events, to create rule-sets where, for example, failed logins to the VPN Server are logged and then when a successful attempt follows soon after, it triggers an alarm for a Brute Force. It does this for things like OKTA already, so control over which events this applies to would be great.
  • More data tiers - something between 250GB and 500GB tiers, maybe break it down into 100GB tiers?
  • Integration with OpsGenie would be great.

  • Pricing and contract flexibility (pricing and terms)

The centralized logging and retention for PCI compliance was our main driver, and it is meeting that need. Otherwise there has been enough frustration with the lack of documentation and the need to customize through the CLI that I would be open to alternatives.

We are currently switching to Office365 for email, so we will evaluate how effective it is.

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

Alternatives Considered

AlienVault was the analyzed solution that delivered more value for less. It has several features and functionalities that do not exist in other analytic solutions. As previously mentioned, we needed an IDS and hired a complete multi-tiered security solution from SIEM to a vulnerability scanner of our cloud resources.

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

No answers on this topic
  • Being able to track users arriving in new countries and lock data until configured has resulted in a direct savings for the company.
  • The ability to push apps, track, lock, and remotely wipe a phone has prevented data loss from occurring. This includes blocking a phone when rooted or jailbroken.
  • Customer service has been fast to respond and resolve issues for unusual configurations.
