Likelihood to Recommend

AlienVault USM

AlienVault USM is well suited for any small/medium businesses as well as big corporations. The reporting and dashboard alone are something I always look for in a USM because it makes it easier for me to gather and find the information I am required to have. If detailed reports are what you are looking for or an easy-to-navigate dashboard this is the software for you.

Tripwire Enterprise is great for hosting/data center environments and it greatly helps where console screenshots and reporting fill a lot of our client internal audit needs for security and change control.

Tripwire Enterprise

  • It allows us to track development changes for engineer accountability.
  • Tripwire Enterprise also allows us to monitor changes/updates being done to our systems in our hosting centers.
  • We use the software to track user access and critical system changes.

Cons

AlienVault USM

  • 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.

Tripwire Enterprise

  • In previous versions the management console was a little hard to navigate in some respects.
  • I'm sure this has changed over time but we hope the reporting system has gotten more granular.
  • I really don't have to many cons for this product, I recommend it for every company I work for!

Almost all functions are intuitive, custom logging is not very easy to configure.

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.

Alternatives Considered

AlienVault USM

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.

Honestly, I haven't used other products to do what Tripwire does, it's always my first recommendation.
