Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

We use it to monitor just about every piece of equipment at our company. USM has helped us finally have a centralized log collection site. Not only does it allow us to monitor what is happening, but address new problems that we weren't able to ever know about. Finding out some weaknesses with certain network equipment and have a clear vision on not just why we might be struggling to get max performance but how to get to that desired goal.
  • Data integration pieces - The many and constantly growing data plugins for different pieces of software and equipment so you have better log collection
  • Threat intelligence - showing where your equipment stands against new patches and the visibility to see where you are lacking and how it can put your network at risk.
  • Maybe have more of a more sophisticated scanning option. A little bit more of a possible PEN test capability. Simple attacks to try to harvest basic information.
I felt like AlienVault just fit the mold of what we were looking for in our SIEM better.
If you have a somewhat complex network spread across multiple locations I think that AlienVault is the perfect scenario. It gives a very detailed insight into each location. With the dynamic asset group, you are able to clump many different locations together and no matter where you are, there is an ability to view what is happening and if that is a trend not just in one spot but across the entirety of the network.
