Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

AlienVault USM is being used throughout our organization to monitor our multiple AWS VPCs and limited internal infrastructure. It provides us with a central management console where we can see everything from our hardware firewalls' traffic, to our Azure AD logs to AWS activity such as GuardDuty, Security Group and IAM events. It has helped us identify threats without which would have gone unidentified and is extremeely useful as part of our IT security and compliance standards.
  • Monitoring Azure logs, such as events where users log in from multiple countries. No need to trawl through the Azure audit trails.
  • Easy visibility on AD account lockouts which are common in our organization due to beta software.
  • Nice visuals and reporting on AWS, 365 and Windows.
  • The console is a little sluggish to refresh and navigate to different pages.
  • Add some more color to the filters rather than all grey.
AlienVault provides a much more comprehensive solution and is much easier to use and configure.
It is well suited to an organization that is growing and there is a need to monitor security events across the board—Office 365, along with AD or any other cloud infrastructure like AWS or Azure. It makes it really easy to administer and bring everything into one place.
