Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

AlienVault is being used internally for testing purposes and is implemented for MSP functionality across our clients. USM provides our clients with central logging and correlated security alerting.
  • Logging
  • Correlation Rules
  • Interoperability
  • Compliance
  • Customization can always be improved with more AlienApps / Plugins
  • Better guidance on what a good baseline of logs should be brought in
  • Better estimates about how many devices a given environment can support.
  • Arcsight Enterprise Security Manager (formerly HP Arcsight) and IBM QRadar
Both of the products I have used in the past were much more medium-large sized businesses. They both had functionalities which are helpful from a trending perspective, have better reporting, and a much more involved user base. The cost of these are prohibitive compared to that of AlienVault USM.
This is the best SIEM solution that I have seen for small-medium sized businesses.
