Quotes From Members

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

Pros
The most valuable feature is threat intelligence.The most valuable feature of this solution is security management for PCI DSS.This solution can identify many threats inside the organization (compromised endpoints, configuration issues), as well as "outside" threats (botnets, network scanners, web-attacks, etc).AlienVault provides a checklist answer when using SIEM.It provides a single pane of glass view, coupled with a whole security ecosystem. The ability to manage everything from a central point, including vulnerability assessments, asset management - including the services provided by the various hosts, NIDS, HIDS, etc. - provides a very efficient way of dealing with things.The IDS and the threat intelligence are very useful. They are very intuitive and data-rich.On any given day I could give you a different answer regarding the most valuable features of the product. The feature that is most important is the fact that it has a lot of features, that it's not just a log collection and correlation system, that it has a lot of other components built in. The bundle of features is really the killer feature.Log-monitoring and alerting enable us to know when things happen that we need to know about.

The most valuable feature is the integration with firewalls. It's integrated with AMP so the ecosystem with equal solutions from Threat Grid is good with CISCO products.

Cons
The reporting is mediocre and is something that needs to be improved.This solution could be easier to use.It would be nice to see some machine learning and monitoring of the configuration in network devices.We develop additional rules and scripts to make it more usable.The reporting module could be a little easier to handle, as it requires quite some trial and error until you get the reports you want. Also, it would be great to have a graphical interface for the Network Intrusion Detection System's rule management.One area that has room for improvement is storage. AllienVault is a good place to put logs, but sometimes it's a tough place to go get logs... The logger can only hold so much data. If they improved that, that would help.Search performance can be slow. The Raw Logs feature is painfully slow. And if we're talking about the newer, the Anywhere product, you can't even schedule reports on the thing. There are probably a dozen other features I'd really like to see there, but that would be one of the biggies.We've had some stability problems, not a lot, but a few. Updates seem to be the worst. That seems to be when the stability problems come up.

They come in and have multiple management solutions but it doesn't scan or doesn't have the ability to look at every file extension.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The licensing fees are dependent on usage.​The vulnerability management solution is worse than buying a Nessus Professional license.​So far, it has been a good solution for a tight budget.It allows you to do a lot with a small price tag... The pricing is the best on the market.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.The pricing is a good value. 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 don't think the product's pricing is a good value because they try to raise the price 50 percent every year... AlienVault needs to understand that not all customers are huge enterprises... Their sales team is way too aggressive. The price they advertise is not always the price you get.So far, I feel the product's pricing is a good value. The technology is decent. You get what you pay for. I think it's fair.
