Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

Our Information Security group has implemented AlienVault USM throughout our worldwide organization to help us monitor and track all activities going on in our network. We currently have 4 sensors deployed and are working on getting more sensors deployed into more markets globally. AlienVault has helped us in many ways including NIDS, HIDS, Asset Inventory, and Tracking, and as a log consolidation tool. Being able to see all of our logs in one place has helped us get a better feel for when something negative is impacting our network traffic, and AlienVault helps provide the tools to remediate quickly and effectively.
  • Log Consolidation
  • Asset Discovery
  • Alarm and Event Tracking
  • Website can be slow and unresponsive at times.
  • Asset configuration can be tricky with DHCP.
  • Asset credentials can be difficult to set up.
AlienVault is a great tool for companies that have a lot of log data coming from different sources and want to consolidate it in a single point of reference. Being able to see all log and event files, and how different events and alerts correlate to each other has made identifying and resolving network issues much easier for our company.
