Many organizations lack the staff, budget, and expertise to effectively detect and respond to threats. Resource constrained IT teams need an easy way to collect security events, review log data, and perform security analysis to identify threats or anomalies, and prioritize response without having to deploy and manage multiple point security products.

Discover AlienVault® Unified Security Management® – or [AlienVault] USM – the easiest, most affordable way to get threat detection, incident response, and compliance management all in one affordable, easy-to-use solution. AlienVault USM delivers built-in tools to collect and analyze security data from across your on-premises and cloud environments, as well as from cloud applications like Office365 and G Suite. AlienVault USM includes integrated, continuously updated threat intelligence so you don't have to spend time researching, developing, and deploying new IDS signatures or correlation rules.

Upon deployment, the AlienVault USM platform automatically discovers your assets, collects events and log data, and starts detecting threats. In many cases, customers identify unknown threats, anomalies, and vulnerabilities within the first hour. Our alarms dashboard gives you visibility into threats across your on-premises and cloud environments to help you prioritize your response to incidents.

Alarms are classified into five categories of risk – system compromise, exploitation and installation, delivery and attack, reconnaissance and probing, and environmental awareness – so you can focus your attention on the most important threats targeting your organization. Detailed information on each alarm provides valuable context on the threat, as well as the guidance you need in order to quickly respond.

Plus, AlienApps™ give you the ability to automate incident response activities with other IT tools like Cisco Umbrella, Palo Alto Networks, Carbon Black, and more. Throughout AlienVault USM, rich dashboards and customizable views provide insight into the security of your environment. And with built-in reports for regulations and frameworks like PCI DSS, HIPAA, and NIST, [AlienVault] USM helps you achieve and maintain compliance. Let the award-winning AlienVault USM platform help you simplify threat detection, incident response, and compliance management.
