Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault Unified Security Management

We are using AlienVault to help monitor the various entry points into our network and keep us aware of possible security holes and breaches. At this time it has been deployed to all of our servers, switches, firewalls, and access points. A few problem systems are being monitored as well.
  • Once set up AlienVault does a very nice job monitoring incoming and outgoing connections looking for potential security issues. With the ability to monitor all the different aspects of our network it is a complete solution rather than having a patchwork of security pieces in place to monitor.
  • The tie in to the AlienVault community further enhances the functionality of the solution by offereing early warnings on new threats and possible solutions for problems.
  • The AlienVault system runs so well and quietly we occasionally let it slip on checking on current issues. This could be remedied by setting up notifications but we have not done that yet.
Previously we were only using endpoint firewalls. The AlienVault solution is much greater solution when combined with what we are already using.
In our environment with many endpoints, firewalls, remote offices, workstations, and servers AlienVault easily handles the variety of equipment. Other than in a very small environment I can not imaging a scenario where AlienVault would not be an appropriate measure.
