Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

AlienVault USM was used in partnering with our outside MSP as a part of our overall information security strategy. We had several password breaches before implementing AlienVault that would have been seen and responded to much sooner if we had a tool like AlienVault. We were able to respond to passwords being compromised much sooner simply because Alienvault gave us real time alerts. We were able to review so much more data and catch potential issues much sooner because Alienvault was implemented.
  • Intrusion Detection
  • Automated Action Response
  • Asset Discovery
  • Printer bug: Asset scan would make printers randomly spit out pages and pages of random text.
Alienvault was the first tool that we evaluated. It was installed after a potential near miss that was only caught because we were actively looking at our logs for something else. We chose Alienvault because of our immediate need for an additional security tool. It performed better than we anticipated and we want to continue using it.
If you're a small company and only have a single person for IT or outsource, Alienvault is a great tool to add to the arsenal. Implementing it allowed me to hold our outside MSP accountable and have a more accurate picture of what was going on inside the company's network.
