The threat alerts it gives me from time to time on harmful code within the network, or if they are generating any network traffic, are very useful.

OSSIM is the only solution that includes the large number of modules that we need: a vulnerability scanner, a network IDS system, a host IDS system.

The open vault component and the checking of vulnerabilities are the most valuable features. The page management helps with this. If you know how your device is vulnerable at least you can do something about it.

You pay monthly for the solution. I think it's one of the best products. If you compare with other companies, like LogRhythm, etc., the top 8 or 10 CMs, I think Alien Vault has the best price-performance ratio.

It takes some time. It does not give me a prompt response for any such [malicious] traffic. It takes time to get that alert from the AlienVault system.

The initial setup was a bit complex. You've got to do a lot of reading. It's not an intuitive implementation.

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