Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault OSSIM

It is currently being used by only the IT department. It is a fantastic tool to help with intrusion detection, asset discovery, SIEM correlation, behavior analytics, and a few other features. On the SIEM side, it does standard correlation, normalization, and collection. Being open source we use it only as part of a lab and not as our enterprise tool but it's been great working with it so far.
  • Being a part of the Open Source community, open source tools are always a big plus for me.
  • Being a simple straightforward tool, it does a great job especially with the asset management piece built into it.
  • Straightforward
  • Open Threat Exchange(OTX) gives a straightforward live threat intel feed to work off.
  • It's a free product! Yes, it doesn't have all the capabilities of the USM anywhere, but it does a great job. Can't really complain.
  • The only investment here is setting it up and I think seeing it's performance it's a fantastic tool and has a great positive ROI!
Small, medium or large, every company can benefit from this tool. Even if you decide to supplement your existing SIEM this is the way to go and chances are you might end up switching to this as your primary.
