What is most valuable?

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.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see an improvement in their threat exchange database because the OTX is not the best thing in the marketplace. There are better solutions. So if they could enhance our feature… more»

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

The price was good and it matched out budget at that stage.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We also used IBM QRadar before, but we did not get proper support and that's why we switched to AlienVault.

What other advice do I have?

If anybody asked me if am I happy with AlienVault, I would say that it is a very good product. Frankly speaking, if anybody asked me about QRadar or ArcSight I will say the same, but it requires lots… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at ArcSight as an option at the beginning, but the pricing was not what we were looking for. And we don't have the proper channel to sell ArcSight in Egypt. That's why we decided to go to… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This solution helps us to provide services for our clients and integrates well with their other technologies.

What needs improvement?

We are having trouble migrating our data sources from version 10 to version 11.2. We cannot add new data sources to the most recent version. I would like to see the Active… more»

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

The cost is dependent on the customer's environment and requirements.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did not previously offer a different solution to our customers. We are currently onboarding Splunk to work concurrently with this solution, but it depends on the… more»

What other advice do I have?

From my perspective, for anyone with a small or medium-sized business, this is the best solution. It is easy to deploy and it is less, from a cost point of view, than… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have experience using ArcSight, but it is very difficult when it comes to creating the connector to integrate with different technologies. We spend time evaluating each… more»

What is most valuable?

Provided that the report is prebuilt and I can find what I am looking for, the reporting is the most valuable feature in this solution. The reports are very good and very presentable.

What needs improvement?

There are reports that I would like to generate that are either not included, or I cannot find. If there is no report for information that needs to be presented then it is one of the biggest issues for the customer. The ticketing system is not fully automated and needs to be improved. There should… more»

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution, but I am familiar with the capabilities of the other products and IBM needs to make some improvements. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have used several other products including ArcSight, AlienVault, and Splunk. Some of these solutions are on-premises or in-house. I do not like Splunk, but I think that ArcSight is a good solution. ArcSight is complicated, but it is a more mature solution with much greater options than IBM is… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is that it provides a central locking system for many event sources.

How has it helped my organization?

We have a regular database to audit and this solution is able to lock the audit data.

What needs improvement?

The web interface needs to be improved, as it has a java-based way to call its controls. There is no integration in the web-side of the tool. It is an important requirement to be able to develop… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did not use another solution prior to this one.

What other advice do I have?

We are planning on changing tools. I would rate this solution a four out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated three other tools in addition to this one. They were Splunk, ArcSight, and Elasticsearch.
