Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

Globally as a SIEM/FIM solution.
  • FIM with limits.
  • Vulnerability scans (with agents installed as opposed to "NXlog").
  • Dashboards.
  • Need to be able to comment on issues flagged by AlienVault so that other users may know what has been done for triage.
  • Single pane of glass, need to have a shared dashboard that is customizable.
I find AlienVaullt easy to use and the learning curve is less when compared to some of the other solutions available. This is especially important for small to medium-sized companies with small staffs. I think of it as what we need and not necessarily what we want in a solution.
The ability to comment on issues within the application is rather important as now I can 'label' an issue and assign to myself or others but cannot include what steps have been taken thus far. That means a separate email communication is necessary.
