Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

We use AlienVault to monitor our servers for malware or attacks against our network. It's a little difficult to set up initially but once you get it dialed in, it's great! It helps us monitor all of our systems and ensure that we are protected.
  • Easy to understand what is going on with the server.
  • Works on firewalls.
  • Alerts are easy to set up.
  • Support isn't always the best.
  • Hard to initially set up.
I've only used AlienVault and no other products of this nature.
I think this works best in an enterprise environments where there are too many servers and objects that need to be monitored and a free product wouldn't work. AlienVault does a good job of allowing you to get down into all the alerts that the machines give off, and also gives suggestions of how to resolve the issues. Sometimes the suggestions aren't great or don't work, but nothing a little googling can't fix.
