Quotes From Members

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

Pros
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 most valuable features of this solution are the data correlation and vulnerability assessment.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 solution is very stable. Compared to Qradar and Splunk, it's very stable.

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.The user interface needs to be friendlier across the board.

OSSIM is free.The licensing fees for the non-community edition are paid on an annual basis, and there are no costs in addition to this.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.

Agentless, remote and non-intrusive, FileAudit offers a simple more user-friendly way to safeguard and secure file access in a Windows environment. FileAudit provides real-time monitoring and alerting on all access (or access attempts). FileAudit also implements contextual functions such as mass access and alteration alerts, tracking source IP address information for remote data access, and providing granular time and date alerting parameters to monitor folder and file access at unusual or unexpected times.
