USM Anywhere (SaaS)

Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

In our organization, AlienVault USM Anywhere is being used as our SIEM. We have all of our SaaS solutions feeding logs to it. The business problem that it addresses is that it provides a "single pane of glass" for all of our logging purposes. Instead of having multiple admin consoles for log reporting on each system, we can just login to AlienVault USM Anywhere to see all logs from all systems.
  • Supports many connectors
  • Provides a single pane of glass for all logging
  • Easy sensor configuration
  • Their support could be more helpful
  • The UI is not very user-friendly
  • The name sounds unprofessional
In our initial search for a SIEM solution, we evaluated many companies including Splunk. Splunk is one of the best SIEM solutions on the market. The reason that we chose to not use them is because they are built for much larger organizations than ours. The cost was very out of our budget.
AlienVault USM Anywhere is well suited in cloud-based environments. They do offer an on-prem solution, but I do not have experience with that. Without prior SIEM knowledge or training, the platform can be challenging to implement. If you do not have the in-house resources for this, I would strongly recommend professional services to ensure that the deployment goes smoothly.
