Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault Unified Security Management

The Alienvault USM has improved the security visibility for my clients. It has helped detect malware and network intrusion in these environments. Also, the reporting and alert features are awesome as prompt and understandable information is conveyed to managers, CIOs, CISOs and other senior IT management executives. The solution is great tool for a security operations center as a bird's eye view of the environment is seen and log integration [is available].

Alienvault USM is user-friendly and easy to understand. The ease of log integration and plugin development has made the solution better when compared to other SIEM tools. Also, Alienvault USM offers more than just the SIEM functions, other interesting features are added which makes the solution rank better than other SIEM solutions in the industry.
AlienVault Unified Security Managment (USM) is best suited for a security operation center. The network and host intrusion detection system enable proper visibility for your environments as security events are well monitored within the environment. Also, the Alienvault USM is best suited for financial institutions in ensuring they are compliant with standards, for example, PCIDSS (payment card industry data security standard).
