Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

We use AlienVault in our organization to monitor the environment of our clients, all the way from reviewing suspicious activity to performing server health-checks and behavior.
  • Great documentation.
  • Overall good support.
  • Nice UI.
  • UI can be wonky at times.
  • Log search from the SIEM UI is quite troublesome as every filter applied performs the search again.
  • Some features can stop working seemingly out of nowhere, requiring contacting support.
AlienVault USM is considerably more user-friendly, but it does fall short with the search functionality that a query language offers when looking for specific logs/statistics/data.
AlienVault is great for setting up a SIEM solution with little setup required, with a not-so-difficult-to-use interface. Most stuff is easy to find with their screens available through menus/sub-menus with accurate titles without being overly compact.
