Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

We are an MSSP and use AlienVault to make sure our client's networks are secure and to confirm that all network access is approved and merited. AlienVault provides great visibility into network events and allows the operations team to confirm and take action on activities that may be considered rouge.
  • Dashboarding.
  • Alert monitoring.
  • Ease of installation.
  • Agent Installs.
  • System updating.
AlienVault provided a single pane of glass option and also was to a model we could grow into. All SIEM solutions we looked at were similar but at the time AlienVault seemed to have the best interoperability with or existing product suite of services.

Alien Vault is best suited in environments that have an infrastructure capable of SPAN ports and infrastructure that has the ability for logging.

In smaller environments, the benefits can still be attained but the overall value of the internal data may not be the level of detail that may have been needed.
