AT&T AlienVault USM Pricing and License Cost

Vinod Shankar
Manager, Enterprise Risk Consulting at a tech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
One of the areas where AV USM benefits is price. It is affordable while offering a whole lot of SIEM features. This turns out to be the deciding factor for small and medium enterprise segments. QRadar, ArcSight and Splunk are some of the most expensive SIEM security tools out there in the market and not everyone has the budget to buy them. In such cases, AV USM is a very cost effective alternative. View full review »

Setup costs should be relatively low compared to commercial versions, but that depends on the cost of consultancy. View full review »

The pricing is a good value and makes sense. The key thing is that for the new product, the licensing of it is subscription-based and it's based on data. Clients need to be really careful when thinking about that, because odds are they're going to need to put a lot more data into it than what they initially estimate, which is going to drive their subscription costs up. I do have concerns that if a payment is delayed or if there is any dispute about billing, that all of our data is held in the cloud and could be lost. View full review »

Have a look at how AlienVault does Events Per Second (EPS) compared to others. Most other products charge based on EPS, the more events the more you have to pay. This causes most companies to limit the amount of logs sent and processed. AlienVault charges by the number of devices managed. You can send anything and everything to the USM. The more logs you can process the better correlation you will have. I have found that companies that limit their logs and then have a security incident would have been able to identify the attack if they would have been monitoring all events in their logs.

Cost is very competitive and if your log ingestion is not huge, then you can get a SIEM for a small budget; AlienVault listen well to customers and work with you on the needs of your business. View full review »

It's very reasonably priced. It was one of the lowest among the ones I looked at. Licensing is pretty flexible. They can do a two-year or a three-year, even a one-year, perhaps. View full review »

Our company normally handles everything from setup to configuration, refinement, and monitoring. We are an MSSP so we all handle this for the customer when they inquire about services. View full review »

I'd push them for pricing. I sense the best time to negotiate with them is in June as the fiscal year ends. View full review »

I don't think the product's pricing is a good value because they try to raise the price 50 percent every year. If they do that again I won't be a customer, going forward. Their sales team is way too aggressive. The price they advertise is not always the price you get. In terms of licensing, AlienVault needs to understand that not all customers are huge enterprises. They don't seem to understand that. View full review »

Do the one month trial and try to work out the kinks during it, as it has free support and service hours. The staff is great at knowing what to do and what they can do to help. View full review »

AlienVault is one of the best to consider in terms of price advantage. AV is giving tools that charge you based on EPS a run for their money. Forget about procuring licensing and setting up stand-alone detection and prevention systems and then having them all integrate for log interpretation. View full review »

The asset licenses are misleading. You can have as many as you want in AV and have NIDS work on all of them. The limit is more about logs and plugins for the assets. View full review »

Research the solution heavily prior to investing. Setting up a bench OSSIM install should help identify possible pain points with the setup. View full review »
