What needs improvement?

They should simplify the HIDS agent reporting/custom rule creation.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for one year.

We had issues but this was due to us receiving improper training from a third party and not necessarily due to the product.

Servers/sensors cap at 2048 host based agent deployments, but servers and sensors are easily scalable for a medium sized business.

10/10

I haven't used anything similar.

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

We also looked at AccelOps, LogRhythm, and IBM QRadar.

What other advice do I have?

If you have any questions, AlienVault's support team is more than willing to help with your installation, implementation, and integration.
