AlienVault USM

Since AlienVault is a versatile tool, having versions for various cloud providers as well as virtualization frameworks, it adheres to the most diverse scenarios. Another strong point to be highlighted is how the company is constantly improving the product. AlienVault is famous for the effort the company puts behind the tool, and it is being improved constantly by adding new resources.

Rencore

If you have a lot of managed code running on SharePoint, Rencore will provide you with a unique understanding of its potential problems like memory leaks, security holes or developers not following best practices. Customers are often amazed at how much information Rencore can gather without even having the source code available! The transformation tooling is often even more compelling: it not only offers guidance on how legacy server-side code can be migrated to newer client-side technologies, it also translates a lot of code for you - automatically.

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.

  • Unique expert knowledge of their target platforms. Not many companies have such a unique position in their target market. Their employees have a deep understanding of SharePoint, Office 365 and Azure and also regularly advise Microsoft on these matters.
  • Community involvement and contribution to open source projects. Key employees at Rencore are considered thought leaders in their area of expertise and contribute to high profile Microsoft open source initiatives.
  • Rencore's unique position when it comes to code quality analysis in the SharePoint space sets it apart. There's really no alternative.
  • Platform governance is another Rencore strength. No other product provides the insights into your SharePoint Online environment with full auditing of not only configuration changes but also who changed which code where and when. Again no alternatives exist.

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

  • Rencore's product line is of course still a bit of a niche: SharePoint code quality is not something every organization on the planet is concerned with - although Rencore does much more than that.
  • We feel Rencore's marketing efforts are mainly targeted at technologists. There's a lot of other potential, especially for their platform governance product.

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.

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.

Implementation

AlienVault USM7.1
Based on 37 answers
AlienVault USM is a great improvement on the AlienVault interface. They have streamlined the interface. There are some features that are not yet working, such as reverse-DNS, which I would consider essential to a mature product. If the development team can improve the functionality and maintain the streamlined interface, this will be a very good product.

Alternatives Considered

We looked at a number of other products besides AlienVault. Most of them were software packages that had OK reviews, but would have been costly to implement and time-consuming to maintain. AlienVault was an all-in-one appliance, though it comes in a virtual machine that you can run as well. We chose the USM because of our virtualization resources were getting pretty tight at the time we chose AlienVault, and we prefer hardware appliances.

For code analysis and code transformation there are no alternatives.
Other cloud governance vendors mainly focus on security and permissions, whereas Rencore main focus is customizations.
