AT&T AlienVault USM Benefits

Consultant at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
There are probably a billion examples I could give. As a service provider, it helps us because we have all of our clients connected in through our management platform, and we're able to leverage the tools that AlienVault provides to monitor and collect data from all of those systems and identify security incidents for all of our clients. It provides network and host-level visibility and it's easy to tune and manage. View full review »
VP at Castra Consulting
It's really easy to aggregate and correlate and view several different security logs and several different data pieces in a single place. That's what allows us to see the security logs that we need to see to determine if there is something malicious on our network or not. Also, aggregating the logs and putting them in a central place helps us to comply with certain regulations, the details of which I can't go into. We have been able to use AlienVault to find critical vulnerabilities in our network and it has helped reduce the time it takes to respond to a threat. View full review »
Systems Administrator at a healthcare company
This product has streamlined productivity by having all the information in one place. It has really helped eliminate a lot of manual work because its automation is pretty robust and important. It puts everything in one place for me. It is also helping us get HITRUST certified, which is a certification we need for New York State. So this tool is a requirement, and it's going to help us stand out with New York State. View full review »

Lorenzo Ciolfi
VP IT Operations at a financial services firm with 51-200 employees
Previous to this, we really didn't have any protection, any intrusion system in place. It's made me more comfortable, since I'm in charge of IT for this company. I sleep better at night. Using the solution, we have been able to look for critical vulnerabilities in our network. Thankfully, we haven't found any. It takes just a couple of hours. View full review »

Phillip Short
Network Operations Manager / Systems Engineer at a tech services company
The all-in-one source for the needs of compliance has put everything into one location without the need of other applications and tools to accomplish the tasks. It brought our logs into one place for review and set up alarms based on changes we were missing due to lack of having one place for everything to go. Vulnerability scanning helped out shortcomings of what was not patched in the past and what needed to be patched. This assisted with fine tuning the environment for compliance. The reports also helped upper management with the ease the product was doing in its job and holes that were being filled. View full review »
Corey Bussard
Manager, Security Operation Center at a tech services company with 51-200 employees

It has helped not only in the security, but also on the network when we have problems with slowness, we can go to the NetFlow section and see who is generating a lot of traffic. Using the communication within the security device, it is easier to create plugins. Therefore, if you want to create plugins, there is an option called plugin creator to assist with this.
