We primarily use the solution just to analyze events that occur based on security events.

The primary use case is local action, vulnerability scanning, and usage of Network IDS. We use some process and correlation rules for our business our customers' businesses.

We are a solution provider and this is one of the products that we implement for our clients. Our clients use this SIEM solution to collect and analyze logs that are generated by different appliances or different machines. It is a correlation tool for event management that gathers all of the events in your environment. This includes different hardware and different operating systems. There are rules in AlienVault that might be triggered based on the logs, and you can tell when there is a security attack or something else that is malicious that comes to your network. These types of events raise a flag and send a notification. Our clients include banks and other financial institutions. There are two versions of AlienVault. One is a community edition and the other requires a license. We are dealing with the licensed version and a hybrid-cloud environment.

We primarily use the solution just to check on devices. OSSIM does a lot of different things to help with this, including a bit of analytics, vulnerability testing, assessment, etc.

Our primary use case for AlienVault is incident management. We started as a customer because one of our companies worked on it. Eventually, we started reselling the service.

I use it for monitoring. I use it for getting alerts on various malicious activities, if there are such on my network. I'm using the free version of this product, OSSIM. As a media company, we follow MPAA, which is a set of controls for media businesses. The other set of compliance that we follow is DPP. We use AlienVault to comply to their standards.
