Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault OSSIM

AlienVault OSSIM is being used across the entire organization. We use the tools to assist in computer security, intrusion detection, and prevention. It provides effective threat detection, incident response, and compliance management, all done within a single appliance. The analysis is run in the background so we don't have to look at all the threats individually and research them from scratch.


  • Threat analysis. It can correlate different events happening to detect a pattern or an attack.
  • Dashboard provides a clean, single location to see what is going on in our environment.
  • Up to date open threat exchange means everything new popping up out there is included and watched for in our environment.


  • Reporting is not the greatest. I had internal developers take data and create some reports that better fit my needs.
  • Navigation through the vulnerability scans is not ideal.
  • Asset management is also cumbersome to navigate through.
  • It satisfied a requirement of our audit team (internal and external).
  • Custom written alerts allow us to be proactive for some events.
  • Stable product means we don't spend a lot of time keeping it up and running.
We have not used any other products similar to AlienVault so I do not have anything to compare it to. We did look at a few others when first purchasing, but at this point, I do not recall what they were.
AlienVault OSSIM support has been very good. I have not had an issue that they were not able to quickly identify and provide a fix for. They are very quick to respond to open cases and are very knowledgeable in the product, which makes troubleshooting issues fast and solutions are provided quickly.

Did implementation of AlienVault OSSIM go as expected?


Would you buy AlienVault OSSIM again?


AlienVault OSSIM is great for organizations that do not have a large staff and cannot afford to dedicate an entire person or group of people to deal with threats and monitoring the environment. The cost is also very reasonable for the amount of functionality of all the features we receive from the product.
