USM Appliance (On-Premises)

Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

Talos Cybersecurity is an MSSP providing Managed Detection and Response services to our clients. For this, we use AlienVault USM on-premises. It is very easy to deploy and setup and starts providing value as soon as it is plugged into the network. All the needs of asset discovery, file integrity, monitoring of critical assets, vulnerability detection, and SIEM ready to plug and play on the initial setup. A long list of plugins helps to integrate SIEM with a variety of products. Also, it is quite easy to develop new plugins and modify the existing plugins. Being an MSSP enables each analyst to handle multiple incidents in a short span of time as the product correlates major information before any need for human intervention.


  • Asset Discovery
  • Network SPAN monitoring
  • Event correlation of out-of-the-box directives and custom directives
  • PCI DSS requirements fulfillment and reporting


  • Appliance should have APIs so that data can be exported to smart dashboards and reports.
  • Limitation of 1000 EPS in All-In-One is very less even for small to medium organizations.
  • Email notification should be smarter and customization for better notifications
Being a great option for large organizations, AlienVault USM is very well suited for small companies as well. Since most cybercrimes are targeted at small companies, which lack funding for cybersecurity setup, AlienVault USM with its pricing model is well suited for all sectors of companies.
