Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

We use AlienVault for our entire organization for SIEM, Vulnerability Scanning, as well as Asset Discovery. It's one system that covers functions which normally would require multiple tools. It's a fantastic product and fits exactly what we need.
  • Multiple functions in one tool (SIEM, Vulnerability Scanning, etc).
  • Very intuitive interface.
  • Great reporting functionality.
  • Deployment was a bit complex.
  • Reporting is useful but hard to set up.
  • The instructions for how to set up SIEM and import logs from other tools were hard to follow.
We needed a tool that was easy to navigate and monitor without a large security operations team -- AlienVault was that tool. Another deciding factor was that AlienVault has multiple security functions provided in one tool.
Great for organizations without a large security operations team, and where using one tool instead of many is helpful in the day to day. It comes with preset reports and dashboards that are extremely useful for those without the full capacity to build everything out of scratch. It's potentially less appropriate for extremely large organizations that need granular customization.
