USM Central enables you to centrally monitor multiple, distributed USM Anywhere and USM Appliance deployments from a single console.
MSSPs and MSPs that use the AlienVault Unified Security Management platform to provide security monitoring services to their end customers can collect and investigate alarms within USM Central. USM Central gives MSSPs a consolidated view of the threats detected in their end customer environments so that they can work efficiently and respond quickly to security incidents.
USM Central also enables large, heavily distributed organizations to connect multiple AlienVault USM platform instances at various locations and to centrally monitor and respond to all alarm activity across all deployments. This federated model is ideal for geographically distributed retail organizations, large enterprises with many departmental entities, and federal, state, and local governments with separate departments that require separate management yet with centralized security monitoring. See USM Anywhere Data Security for more information on how data security is managed in the USM Central and USM Anywhere environments.
Important: On our website, you can see the Introduction to USM Central video which introduces you to USM Central and reviews its capabilities. This video includes a recorded demonstration of USM Central and an orientation to the user interface.
