We use it for compliance. We're not using it as a security operation center type of thing. Its usage is more from an auditing standpoint at this point. We partner with them for customers who need something like a SIEM, so we're a cloud provider and integrator. It is deployed on the cloud. It is a combination of AT&T's own cloud and our cloud. We run our own infrastructure. So, it is a hybrid and private cloud.

We provide information security services to clients. We are seeking some clients to provide monitoring services by using AlienVault. We are also providing AlienVault USM Anywhere, which is cloud-based and has integration with cloud platforms such as AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud.

We were trying to get into the security market to be able to offer something to our clients who are asking for a monitoring event management system. We started looking at what we could offer as an MSP to our clients; that's what drove us into evaluating different SIEM products, to get a better understanding of how the billing is set up as a partner. Alien Vault had the best set up for MSPs — the way they are set up for billing and the way they set up their USM account.

We have three main uses for the solution. They are compliance, incident response, and as a tool for information security.

The primary use cases for this solution are log management, security events correlation, and any other enterprise use cases for SIEM (new plugins development, correlation rules development, risk assessment, and asset management).

We use AlienVault to collect all mission-critical logs and to pull data directly from G Suite. It provides our small IT operation with an easy-to-use tool to assess our security operations.

We have used AlienVault for our security monitoring for threat protection and compliance management. We've seen an improvement against malware and viruses. It has definitely eased our concerns so we can focus on other things.

We use it to gain security visibility and to meet compliance. We're not just a customer but we're a partner as well. We've deployed this into thousands of organizations and we continue to see that happening. It's a great tool.

* MDR provider * Logs aggregation * Vulnerability assessments * Some automation. We needed a way to see all of these items under one pane of glass without spending incredible amounts of money on log aggregation, vulnerability assessments, etc., then putting it all together with an IR platform.

AlienVault USM is a single pane of glass solution. It has not only SIEM capabilities but also other capabilities. AlienVault USM Anywhere is easy to deploy with their cloud-based model, and deploying the required agents on-prem (or in the cloud) is quick and easy. USM Anywhere also takes care of reporting for ISO and PCI, allowing you to pull reports for auditors at a moment's notice.

Our initial need which brought us to acquire this solution was to be in compliance with GDPR requirements. Our environment is cloud-based (specifically AWS).

We use AWS for our application platform and wanted a SIEM that was easy to deploy as a service and that had functionality and integrations focused on AWS. We found AlienVault was the best on price vs features and the team at AlienVault worked hard to make sure we were happy during our on-boarding. Features are rolled out fast and issues addressed quickly. The integration of OTX out-of-box and at no additional cost was a real selling point and the AWS features made it a clear winner.

We use it for the intrusion protection on our firewall. It's monitoring all our incoming traffic from the outside world through a firewall.

As a product-agnostic Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP), AlienVault USM is one of several SIEM solutions we utilize in our Security Operation Center (SOC). We deploy, manage, and monitor the solution for other clients, and we use it for ourselves. As do most SIEMs, AlienVault allows us a central location to monitor the cybersecurity of an IT environment. It's impossible to avoid 100% of attacks, so after setting up defenses, the next best thing is to have 24/7 eyes-on-glass to be able to quickly respond to incidents as they happen.

Our use of the solution is all over the map. We use it for our own internal use. We use it in our security operations center. We're a reseller, we're an MSSP, and a Professional Services provider, so we do a lot of professional services on the platform. It's a standard SIEM solution and is used for log collection, log management, event correlation, alarming, and reporting.

My company wanted to get software which would be able to monitor resources in AWS, mainly IDS in one cumulative GUI, then add extra requirements with AlienVault match.

This is a jack of all trades (master of none) SIEM/IDS/vulnerability management/OSSEC/NetFlow solution. We use it primarily as a SIEM and IDS solution.
