Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

AlienVault is one of many security solutions that we utilize in our network. We use it to monitor unusual traffic and behavior to and from our domain controllers, which we combine with endpoint security and network security to have a granular view of activity throughout our network.
  • Extremely customizable and versatile product.
  • Useful dashboard and UI is easy to navigate.
  • Log plugins parse logs from a variety of sources into a readable format
  • AlienApps provide out-of-the-box integration with other solutions.
  • The product requires a considerable amount of time to set up.
  • Setting up log filters in order to prevent USM from quickly running out of space is very time-consuming.
  • The product will stop working if the logs run out of space. There is no way to set retention rules to automatically clean up old logs.
AlienVault is an impressive solution for any organization dedicated to the proactive security of their environment. However, not every organization will be able to spare the time required to properly set up and administer it.
