Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

We use Alienvault USM for our cloud environment. We use it for requirements for PCI compliance. We currently have two sensors to track configuration changes, vulnerabilities in our servers and applications, and for network scanning. Alienvault USM alerts us when anyone changes or reconfigures our network environment, when a user is added or removed, or when a potential attack is happening.
  • Alerting when a person changes a routing table in our cloud network.
  • Alerting when someone fails to login after many attempts.
  • Vulnerability scans.
  • Finding results after scanning an environment for vulnerabilities.
  • Installing a sensor into an environment.
Alienvault and AWS Config are very similar. AWS Config and Alienvault both scan for vulnerabilities in your environment. AWS Config does give you a general idea of how to fix the issue, where Alienvault USM does not. Alienvault does have much more than just vulnerability scans, where AWS Config is lacking.
Alienvault is well suited for any company that needs to be PCI compliant. Alienvault is also well suited for any cloud environment where you can not physically touch routers, switches, or even servers. The alerting of Alienvault is precise and gives you the exact information you need to understand what the alert or error is.
