AlienVault OSSIM Valuable Features

The threat alerts it gives me from time to time on harmful code within the network, or if it is generating any network traffic, are very useful. However, it takes some time. It does not give me a prompt response for any such traffic. It takes time to get that alert from the AlienVault system. I'm using it for discovering assets every day. If there are any changes in my network, I give it additional subnets which have been added. It adds all the assets to my dashboard. View full review »

What I like about this product, is that it is a fully-fledged solution. I don't need to buy any complementary products, everything comes in one box. View full review »

The dashboard is the solution's most valuable aspect. It brings everything into one central point where I can actually look at it and go, "Okay, I understand what's going on." The solution works well and allows me to have visibility into anomalous events. View full review »

A very good feature of AlienVault OSSIM is that it has many domains that can be integrated from different solutions. For example, if we have a firewall and I want to connect it with the AlienVault OSSIM, there is already a grid affecting that. From that perspective, it's a very good solution in that almost everything can be integrated and that makes it better than other SIEM solutions. The great thing is that the networking configuration features are good and integrations don't need to be done manually. Of course it's possible but there's an automatic option for configuring networks and there's a plug in for different kinds of solutions. Network security firewalls, IDS, and the like are things that already exist. View full review »

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. View full review »

AlienVault sometimes works like an appendix. It's not accurate in most cases, but we use an agent like WinCollect to collect logs. We collate the information. The solution is fast-acting when it comes to collecting the logs, and for all the inter-process work. View full review »

AlienVault's features are all quite valuable. Using the CM to get post pay logs and lateral pay logs to a connection is also helpful. View full review »
