Top 5 reasons for choosing Alienvault

January 13, 2011  |  Dominique Karg

This was a response from a customer whom I’m keeping anonymous unless he wants to step up, I was glad to read that and it always feels good to have this type of feedback.

Sure…here they are in order of importance to me.

1. - Industry standard open source software - I don’t care who you are, if you are in IT or Security, you have heard of Snort, Nagios, ntop, etc.

2. - Support - I wanted something that was supported by people who were proud of their product and who actually care about it’s success.

3. - It works! - Issues with getting the hardware aside, the performance and stability of OSSIM is either on par or beyond other commercial products

4. - Time to implement - We got the systems up and going in our production environment in 2 days, the tuning is ongoing, but it was exceptionally quick to implement.

5. - Personal attention - Being supported by Dom and Santi, the guys who have been with the project since inception was a huge thing for me, they obviously care deeply about the company and it’s customers.

6. - Cost - The cost of entry into the SIEM arena for most companies is a huge barrier, with OSSIM, that barrier has been all but removed.

7. - Your daughter being a bad-ass hockey player was cool!  (you can quote me on this one!)  :o)
