Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

We deployed AlienVault's USM for a complete view of our network and assets across the company as a whole. We are now able to have a single pane of glass view of assets, services, vulnerabilities, anomalies, or security related alarms.
  • Initial deployment, during my research on deploying a SIEM solution deployment, seemed to be a nightmare in many of AlienVault's competitors. AlienVault's process was amazingly simple.
  • The readability of log information is great with AlienVault. I am able to review security alerts or events and know exactly what may have occurred and what information is actionable on the network level to address any issues.
  • Easier to create reports for large sets of data.
  • Better out of the box automation of alarm and ticket responses or actions.
  • Very small but the ability to always view alarms in a grouped view.
They are truly the best product I found after a year or so of research. We were all set to move forward with a different solution but I found AlienVault offered more features for a better price.
This product gives you total insight to what is occurring on your network and for the price it is unbeatable.

Evaluating AlienVault USM and Competitors

  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor
I found that for the price you were getting the most for your money, I was amazed at the cost for what benefits using the USM would offer.
The only thing I would do differently is schedule/budget more professional services time down the road after using and configuring the AlienVault USM to meet my needs to see how my configuration could be improved, or answer any questions I may have accumulated after using the system for awhile.

AlienVault USM Implementation

Initial deployment was great compared to all the research I had read about deploying SIEM solutions. The basic setup gives excellent information about what is occurring on your enterprise network.

Using AlienVault USM

Being SIEM type solution there is no other product that is this easy to configure and use.
