Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

AlienVault Unified Security Management has simplified our PCI compliance with amazing visibility. AlienVault has been amazing! We currently have a support contract as well as a third party consultant, and I know that there is nothing more that I would ask of either one. Everything from the sales guy working so diligently with me all the way up to their customer support. AlienVault has made my life 100% better and I am very satisfied with the decision I made to move to AlienVault.
  • SIEM solution is the best of any that we tested.
  • Agentless monitoring is perfect for monitoring networking equipment for historical changes made.
  • The Nagios monitoring software build, it is not always the best through the UI but with the ability to alter the configs and manually monitor specific things I'd like it's great!
  • Nagios monitoring through the UI, i.e. configuration changes and naming ports with specific names that pertain to me would be nice.
  • The ability to personalize more without them being wiped when doing an update would be even better.
  • The ability to stand up a standalone Nagios monitoring system on the AlienVault remote sensor to forward events to the AIO.
When comparing the differences between all these programs we noticed that AlienVault Unified Security Managementblew the competitors out of the water not only in pricing but in so much more. The features that they were offering were not only amazing selling points but some of the features were not even available in the other options.
What can it do for me? Every company is different and they will always have different needs, specifically for us was the need for centralized logging and a simple but amazing vulnerability scanning. Everything else in the system was just an added bonus and not to mention the sales team working a lot with me on pricing and additional components.
