New! AlienVault USM Anywhere Challenge Coin: What is it and how do I get one?

July 26, 2018  |  Rick Stiffler

AlienVault has minted a challenge coin to acknowledge the commitment and dedication it takes to become an AlienVault® Certified Security Engineer. Becoming certified in any technology is something to be proud of but becoming certified on AlienVault® USM Anywhere proves that you are skilled in deploying and managing a threat detection solution that’s trusted by thousands of customers worldwide. The coin design proudly displays the AlienVault logo, along with a specific serialization that makes it a unique, one of a kind object.

So how do you earn an AlienVault challenge coin?

The coin is earned by passing the current version of the AlienVault® Certified Security Engineer (AVSE) exam.

It’s been three months since we introduced the certification for AlienVault® USM Anywhere™ so we thought it might be helpful to share how to prepare for the AlienVault® Certified Security Engineer (AVSE) and provide some background on what candidates can expect.

Since introducing the certification, we have seen a dramatically higher pass rate for those candidates who’ve attended both the AlienVault® USM Anywhere™: Deploy, Configure, Manage (ANYDC) and the AlienVault® USM Anywhere™: Security Analysis (ANYSA) courses. The certification validates the lessons learned in both courses so while it is not required, attending both courses will provide you the skills and knowledge you’ll need to successfully complete the AVSE certification. Attending the training also gives you hands-on experience with the product and the best possible path to earning the AVSE certification.  A certification exam voucher is included with each course.  

For candidates who have not taken the training but still need to prepare for the certification, we recommend reviewing the AVSE exam blueprint which can be found at the following link:

AlienVault USM Anywhere documentation is also a great resource for review. It provides valuable insight into the product especially for candidates who have not taken the training courses. AlienVault USM Anywhere is a powerful product that continues to deliver new features and functionality. The documentation is the best way to stay current on the latest version of the product. You can find the documentation at the following link:
