AlienVault Review
We are able to get alerts perfectly with FIM and VA features

Primary Use Case

This has an OTX feed. With it, we are able to get notifications about every incident that happens.

By forwarding device logs, we are able to get alerts perfectly with FIM and VA features.

Improvements to My Organization

We are the Partners in Sri Lanka. We are doing deployments in Sri Lanka, Maldives, and Bangladesh. 

This is a USM, so being able to get all the features under one roof makes it a good product with good new features.

Valuable Features

Unified Security Manager (USM). In every SIEM, having only SIEM features (log management, alerting, notifications, etc.) is typical. Here we can get file integrity monitoring and a vulnerability assessment tool together with SIEM

I have never seen a tool like this.

Room for Improvement

The Log Management and configuration of email notifications should be user-friendly. Pay attention to false-positive event automatic correlations. 

Efficiency of Security Team


Events per Day


Use of Solution

One to three years.

Stability Issues

No, we did not have issues with stability.

Scalability Issues

No, we did not have issues with scalability.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Good. They have technically fluent engineers there.

Previous Solutions

Yes. We switched because this is a USM (SIEM, FIM, and VA tool in one product) and the price.

Initial Setup

The initial setup is straightforward, but some features are little bit difficult.

Implementation Team

We are the partners in Sri Lanka. Therefore, we are directly involved with implementations.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

It has good pricing.

Other Solutions Considered

We evaluated EventTracker.

Other Advice

Our customers have good references about AlienVault.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are partners in Sri Lanka
