AlienVault does a superb job as a security appliance/service. My only hesitation in giving it a higher rating is that I was not expecting it to need this much attention to configuration and setup. For what we're getting, I feel like it's worth the price we're paying, which is not insignificant. Their support is always forthcoming and helpful, and with very few exceptions, their uptime is stellar.

We are actively looking for a replacement application due to how expensive the application has gotten and the lack of information that it provides. Lots of false positives and its not very intuitive to use or manage. Little to no actionable information is provided to my team in order to correct issues or look for potential threats.

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.

Although we have had a few bumps on the road, we believe AlienVault is a strong vendor on the SIEM market and it has been continuously working to improve it's product with new features and better functionalities. As AlienVault is mainly focused on SIEM, other vendors offer a lot of other products and the roadmap is limited.

As our company grows we need additional features such as an API, integration with an ELK stack and pivot tables. Unfortunately those are not the strongest points of AlienVault.

It's the best product available to us right now, it gives us a lot of functionality that we need to meet compliance requirements at a reasonable price.
