Innovative Uses

  • As I mentioned before, the Integrations and Plugins with other SaaS services we're using and plugins for other components of our infrastructure was a nice bonus feature we weren't expecting
  • We were able to configure custom alerts for our staging and production web services and cancel Papertrail.
  • This isn't in production yet, but I hope to do more work with deep scans and alerting and replace our Automox subscription.

Innovative Uses

  • We've used it to validate some of our Regulatory requirements. as In we performed this exercise was AlienVault able to detect that activity
  • We've used for network change management. When It makes a change Security is notified and IT has to signoff that they made the change.

Innovative Uses

  • We have been able to focus the service to our customer's business. The flexibility it offers has allowed us to monitor datasources that no other SIEM vendor could offer.
  • We have been able to integrate the AlienVault USM technologies with other services that we already offered in order to come up with an improved version of already existing services.
  • We have been able to offer POC scenarios to our customers of a technology that is somehow difficult to deliver (other vendors do not offers POC and the customers have to buy the product without proving is what they need)

Innovative Uses

  • Set up alerts for when a user has locked out their account. The alert goes to helpdesk so that they can contact the user, sometimes before they even realize they have locked their account. Also provides security in knowing that the user is the one indeed locking out their account.
  • Use the vulnerability scanning to address vulnerabilities so when the auditors scan we have a much cleaner report as well as secured our environment.
  • Set up alerts to go to Sys Admins when domain group memberships change. This provides an audit for privileged groups as soon as they occur.
