Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

We currently use AlienVault USM with our managed service provider division to provide security and visibility for our services provided to our customers. We're SOC2 certified and AlienVault USM is a key part of maintaining that certification with the data it gives us about what is happening with our services and the infrastructure that supports those services.
  • The network IDS of AlienVault USM Anywhere is easy to set up with our network and provides excellent visibility into the network traffic.
  • We use the host-based IDS agent on each of our servers so that we can get detailed server actions and analyze anything unusual.
  • The web interface of AlienVault USM does an excellent job of providing the right level of information and not overloading us with raw data.
  • Some flexibility of how we can use the data from the host agent ISD would be a good improvement.
We looked at multiple different SIEM vendors and after our reviews and demos of each, we selected AlienVault USM because it had the right level of gathering information on our services and infrastructure, presenting it in a useful and actionable format, and level of the required configuration and regular maintenance within AlienVault USM.
AlienVault USM works really well as a service that does both network and host-based IDS with pre-packaged virtual appliances and system installers that feed into the central AlienVault USM service that does an excellent job of presenting the necessary data of security items that are good and security items that need to be remediated.
