Customizable dashboards and reports, offers abnormal behavior detection, and the support is good

Pros and Cons

  • "You can customize the dashboards as well as the reporting."
  • "The documentation could be improved."

What is our primary use case?

We are using AlienVault for vulnerability scanning and detecting abnormal behavior.

What is most valuable?

This product is easy to use.

The support is very good and they offer managed services.

The dashboards are good. You can customize the dashboards as well as the reporting.

What needs improvement?

There needs to be more focus on the NOC and IIS in terms of developing applications for behavior detection.

The backup features use a lot of storage space.

The documentation could be improved.

Asset management and filtering are in need of fine-tuning and enhancement.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with AlienValut since 2018.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

AlienValut is a very stable product.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is perfect.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have worked with LogRhythm in the past, since 2015, and I find that AlienVault is a better product. We are facing a technical issue with LogRhythm, as it is still used in other parts of our organization. I am looking to finalize and unify the solution.

We needed better detection to give us information from the IS about geography or abnormal behavior that is breaching our security. Most of our products are web applications and this is important to us. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are currently looking into implementing a PoC for either ManageEngine or FortiSIEM.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering AlienVault is to implement a proof of concept to ensure that it meets their requirements. A PoC should be done before settling on any product.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Excellent security features with 100% stability and good scalability capabilities

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is 100% stable. We really have had a great time working with it. It hasn't let us down."
  • "The user interface could be more user-friendly."

What is most valuable?

The security can't be compromised. The security features on offer are the most valuable feature and are why it's really worth having as a product like this in our organization.

What needs improvement?

The user interface could be more user-friendly.

Technical support could be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for two or three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is 100% stable. We really have had a great time working with it. It hasn't let us down.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We've been satisfied with the level of scalability the solution offers us.

How are customer service and technical support?

We've had some issues in the past and have had their Pakistani representative here. We've also communicated with foreign branches of technical support. The solution offers okay assistance. It's not a mature solution like Fortinet or Watchguard, but it's still providing okay service. I'd say the help we've received is largely mixed. It's been 50/50 in terms of resolving our issues.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's a fairly low-cost solution, so the pricing is pretty good.

What other advice do I have?

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. If it was more user-friendly, I'd mark it higher. Right now, technical people working on the solution don't understand what it is are trying to communicate in its tabs. As a company, you need to have a certified or experienced McAfee engineer there or on staff to guide you.

I'd recommend the product, however. It's a nice, robust product.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
