AlienVault OSSIM Review

Community forums provide good support, but it is not user-friendly and the correlation engine needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

We are using this solution for collecting logs. We are not correlating or assessing any user behavior analytics (UBA). 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the logging capability.

What needs improvement?

The correlation engine needs to be improved.

The interface is not user-friendly, which is an area for improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is certainly a scalable product.

How are customer service and technical support?

The Community version does not have any technical support.

We have been able to resolve some issues through the community forums.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we did not use another similar product.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We are using the community version, which can be used for free.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have decided to implement a fully-featured SIEM solution that has all of the features, including UBA.

What other advice do I have?

Because we are using the community version, we were unable to explore features such as behavior analytics.

I would rate this solution a five out of ten.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

Version 5
