Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
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 most valuable features of this solution are the data correlation and vulnerability assessment.OSSIM is the only solution that includes the large number of modules that we need: a vulnerability scanner, a network IDS system, a host IDS system.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.You pay monthly for the solution. I think it's one of the best products. If you compare with other companies, like LogRhythm, etc., the top 8 or 10 CMs, I think Alien Vault has the best price-performance ratio.The initial setup was straightforward. I didn't have any problems.With AlienVault you get everything in one box.The solution has a very good open source community, and whenever we have problems, we are always able to resolve it online.

The advanced analytics has a really great overview of user behavior.

Cons
I would like the solution to be able to integrate with my firewall, my IDS and my Honeypot solutions so that it can provide real-time reporting as things occur and then have alert sent to me on my phone when suspicious activity is happening.The price of this solution is very high and it could be cheaper.We need more dashboards and we need more customization for dashboards.The initial setup was a bit complex. You've got to do a lot of reading. It's not an intuitive implementation.The user interface could be improved.It's under heavy traffic. If you have heavy traffic, the system is slow.Sometimes technical issues take very long to get resolved.The solution needs more integration with cyber intelligence systems.

I believe if it were more flexible it would be a better product.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The licensing fees for the non-community edition are paid on an annual basis, and there are no costs in addition to this.OSSIM is free.The solution is open source, so it's free to use.AlienVault pricing is the best. Whatever cost you are paying, you are getting a return on every penny... It's not like your IBM, your QRadar, or Splunk, where the cost is too high.

Overview

AlienVault OSSIM, Open Source Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), provides you with a feature-rich open source SIEM complete with event collection, normalization and correlation. Launched by security engineers because of the lack of available open source products, AlienVault OSSIM was created specifically to address the reality many security professionals face: A SIEM, whether it is open source or commercial, is virtually useless without the basic security controls necessary for security visibility.

The Exabeam Security Intelligence Platform provides organizations of all sizes with comprehensive, end-to-end detection, analytics, and response capabilities from a single security management and operations platform. Exabeam provides elastic scalability through the use of a modern big data and machine learning architecture that ingests and analyzes data at any scale; all at a predictable cost. This means organizations no longer need to choose between adhering to security budgets and adding additional data sources that would minimize their security blind spots.

Exabeam represents the first security management platform to fully deliver on the initial “promise of SIEM”: complete visibility into modern threats with automated and intelligent response. Exabeam delivers what SIEM products do not.
