Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault Unified Security Management

AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) is used by our organization as one part of a wider security framework that is designed to protect us from inappropriate outside access, and unauthorized applications running on our system. USM plays the important role of monitoring and alerting when anomalies start to happen. We have it externally monitored by a third party.
  • It HAD to be easy to implement
  • It needed to be multi task capable
  • As a small agency price was critical
  • None really
It was a pretty even fight between Logrythm and AlienVault. The other two ended up outside our price range. The thing that made the big difference was that AlienVault was supported here in Canberra by a local firm ( Price wise AlienVault was a bit cheaper.
Small agencies that don't have a complex network structure or who are price sensitive but who need to have a comprehensive tool will find this useful. We have around 200 heavily virtualized servers and 300 staff with all devices (servers, networking and desktops) being monitored and logged.
