AlienVault OSSIM Review

A free solution with an easy installation, but the system is slow

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use the solution for securing my traffic and the SIEM.

What is most valuable?

The fact that it is free is the most valuable aspect of the solution.

What needs improvement?

It's under heavy traffic. If you have heavy traffic, the system is slow. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for two years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of the solution is okay. We have about 100 users right now.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is fine, but if you have a problem, for example, if you have to decode or fix some bugs, you have to manage it yourself.

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

We did not previously use a different solution.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. I didn't have any problems.

What about the implementation team?

I implemented the solution myself.

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

The solution is free to use.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate other options before choosing this solution.

What other advice do I have?

The installation is easy, but it's not very compatible with some of our other solutions. Still, it's okay, it's very good. It integrates well with ELK.

I would rate the solution six out of ten.
