Pricing and Cost Advice
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.​The vulnerability management solution is worse than buying a Nessus Professional license.​The ROI is quite good.Use an MSSP instead. It is much cheaper.We ran a few PoCs. The price and feature set were the best with AlienVault.Negotiate the best package for your environment.It has good pricing.
