AT&T AlienVault USM Review

The vulnerability scanner keeps our environment always updated about security threats

What is our primary use case?

Our initial need which brought us to acquire this solution was to be in compliance with GDPR requirements. Our environment is cloud-based (specifically AWS).

How has it helped my organization?

Beyond provided us with an IDS as was our initial need, but AlienVault gave us more useful resources, as SIEM, and as a vulnerability scanner (the last, one of my favourite resources).

What is most valuable?

My favourite one is the vulnerability scanner because while using it, our environment is always updated about security threats.

What needs improvement?

Taking into account that server access credentials are controlled by the tool, some more management-focused actions could be performed from AlienVault.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
