Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

AlienVault USM is being used for compliance purposes and as a central system and event log repository. We decided to utilize the hosted version for simplicity and ease of use. In addition, the hosted solution allowed for easy setup and configuration. AlienVault USM is currently being used by the Information Technology department. Events and logs are reviewed when needed. The solution allows us to now have one location for all the various applications and devices to deposit logs.
  • We found AlienVault USM very easy to configure and get running.
  • The user interface is very intuitive, allowing most IT staff to use with little training.
  • Many useful features included.
  • Custom reports are difficult to configure.
Splunk does a good job, but the configuration was very complex and we have concerns about customization. In addition, the cost per GB of data made the solution excessively expensive. The cost of AlienVault USM is more in-line with what we are able to spend on a SIEM solution.
AlienVault USM seems to be well suited for SMB sized business that is trying to be smart with IT investments and may not have an unlimited budget for one security product.
