USM Appliance (On-Premises)

Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

It is used throughout our organization. It is one part of our security portfolio. It provides insight into network and server events and alarms for potentially dangerous behavior. It provides a central place to manage and correlate logs from our servers, network equipment, firewall, antivirus, and I'm currently rolling it out to the end-user computers.
  • Security event correlation.
  • Security event alarms
  • Security event investigations
  • Potential vulnerability identification
I evaluated Crowd Strike. It didn't provide any insight into my network equipment, only Mac and Windows clients. I wanted a complete SIEM and log manager.
In the case of a small office network, it might not be a good fit. In that case, I would recommend finding an MSP that uses it. Along with a good antivirus and firewall, I believe that this tool proves to be an excellent piece of any multi-tiered security system.
