Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault Unified Security Management

AlienVault is being used on a government contract to monitor and protect the environment in which the system sits. IT monitors all aspects from network traffic to ensuring all servers are available and running. Any attempt or threat is reported. We can run vulnerability scans to see where any work needs carrying out to ensure the system is not vulnerable.

Pros

  • Adaptability - you can tailor the system to whatever needs you have.
  • Vulnerability - Provides useful information to ensure all aspects of security are covered.
  • Monitoring - you can have additional users so eyes are on the system at all time.

Cons

  • Need to advertise more as they may get overlooked by some businesses.
  • Need to make more plugins although you can request a plugin to be created on your behalf.
  • Make the ticket system easier to work with on a daily basis.
We have an enclosed environment which is separate from the company networks. For this AlienVault USM provides a one stop solution to the needs. It doesn't compromise the system and in fact it has been a great asset to allow the levels of monitoring we have gained since using Alien Vault USM.
