Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault Unified Security Management

When examining our security solutions, we realized we needed a product or group of products to fill a number of roles- log management, event correlation, intrusion detection, and vulnerability management. AlienVault not only was able to provide a single solution to cover all those areas, but the time to actionable data was incredible. We were detecting malware almost immediately (once the dashboard was up on the all-in-one trial) - malware that was missed by our antivirus and firewall.
  • Ease of deployment.
  • Intuitive WUI.
  • OTX is outstanding.
  • Patch roll-out process seems a little immature or is still developing.
We had TripWire previously. I'm told that it's an outstanding product, but the learning curve, required professional services and/or training, and overall effectiveness always felt lacking. Not only is AlienVault Unified Security Management a more complete product, but it is light-years easier to implement; documentation is widely available and support is helpful and responsive.
The multiple methods of detection and the associated event correlation definitely ease the job of detecting threats; we are very pleased with the results so far.
Between the price point and the out of the box effectiveness, I think AlienVault Unified Security Management can compete with anyone.
