Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault Unified Security Management

We use AlienVault Unified Security Management as a central SIEM, HIDS, NIDS and vulnerability scanning. Our incident response team uses it daily, while our systems group has automated processes that protect external services.
  • Centralized SIEM, even though collectors are distributed within segments.
  • Correlation rules between HIDS/NIDS/SIEM is often left out of other products.
  • Interface UX is well done and easily traverse-able to pinpoint concerns quickly.
  • Upgrade process often leaves a lot to be desired.
  • Requires a lot of hardware resources to make web UI load times bearable.
  • Aanval
Seemed to have a better track record and roadmap.
Collector cost(license and hardware) to poke into segments can quickly add up.
