Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault Unified Security Management

We use AlienVault Unified Security Management for monitoring our entire corporate network. We also use it for compliance with HIPAA regulations since we have signed business associate agreements (BAA) in place.

Pros

  • Log collection correlation and analysis. Makes reviewing logs easier.
  • Intrusion detection. Identifies possible threat to our network.

Cons

  • Asset management is not very user friendly. Takes a lot of manual maintenance to keep it accurate especially when DHCP is used.
  • Management of plugins.
  • Normalization of logs. Sometimes the logs are not parsed correctly and the important data is difficult to find.
Key considerations are to make sure to size the network appropriately.
