The solution offers great models with good integration and this is one of the out-of-the-box features which you're able to easily enable and get it up and running. It's a big plus for the product, because you don't have to bother your head about doing the integrations.

Other good features include an inbuilt IDS, an inbuilt integration with their own threat intelligence platform which is the OTX, and integration with the vulnerability assessment modules.

We really like the solution's architecture. There's a logon, clients, an agent, and then the server. All of these were deployed in a multilayer architecture.

The threat policies of the solution are always very advanced and the best in the market. They are very persistent in terms of keeping up with security protocols.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Its user-friendliness is the most valuable. It is very easy to use and explore. The dashboard is very well packaged and integrated. You don't have to spend a lot of time in configuring it and checking out the RPM etc. 

It is also free and very powerful.

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.
