Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

We use it to monitor our environment to ensure our security policies are kept up to date and that no breaches have been made.
  • Fast.
  • Neat.
  • Powerful.
  • Might be a bit complex.
  • We could use a map with the story of the events and how they're linked together.
They are both great solutions, but we found that AlienVault was more cost-effective for the business, and therefore opted for it.
It's well suited to analyze security events and investigate them. It also helps with the patching, by scanning what assets haven't the latest security patches installed. It also integrates well with other 3rd-party tools.
It is less appropriate for a deep scan of network packets, or to have a visual representation of the events.
