Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

AlienVault USM is a SIEM solution we utilize to centralize and search log data from a large number of network attached devices. Currently, devices across our entire network send log data to this service, easing analyst requirements and workflow surrounding incident response and log management.
  • Asset Management
  • Log searchability
  • Built-in plugins
  • Plug-in Development for new services
  • Vulnerability scanning
  • UI tweaks - i.e. asset detail lists
AlienVault USM is light years above and beyond what OSSIM offers. As OSSIM is free, this makes sense.
AlienVault USM Is great for small-medium sized business with relatively immature security posture. As the amount of data being ingested (i.e. posture maturation) increases; however, AlienVault USM can get rather pricey, quick.
