Detect, Analyze & Respond to Today’s Threats
Government cyber security is difficult even in the best of times because of limited budgets, competing priorities, and legacy systems. The AlienVault Unified Security Management™ (USM) platform overcomes these challenges by unifying five essential security capabilities in a single management platform. The AlienVault approach helps your existing IT team secure your networks and improve cyber incident visibility, on day one.
The AlienVault USM™ platform delivers asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection, behavioral monitoring and security information and event management (SIEM) in a single solution, enabling you to:
- Measure, manage, and report on information security policy and regulatory compliance
- Identify emerging threats targeting your environment quickly and accurately
- Respond faster to incidents and conduct thorough investigations
- Optimize your existing security investments while reducing risk
- Unify essential government network security management
Accelerate threat detection and response
- Detects threats that have evaded perimeter security tools
- Identifies the most significant threats in your network with kill-chain taxonomy
Increase cyber security visibility with integrated threat intelligence
- Extends the security expertise of your IT team
- Delivers context-specific response guidance in every alert
Reduce costs, reduce complexity
- Eliminates need for stand-alone network security products with integrated security controls
- Maximizes effectiveness of existing staff and tools
Improve regulatory and policy compliance
- Monitors continuously for complete security awareness
- Automates and simplifies policy compliance
Accelerate Threat Detection and Response
There is no way to prevent a dedicated, patient attacker from breaching your network. Relying on preventive tools that sit at the network edge is not enough—you need cyber security threat detection inside your network as well.
AlienVault’s USM platform puts built-in, essential security controls and seamlessly integrated threat intelligence, powered by AlienVault Labs, into the hands of government IT teams with limited resources. You can now deploy a single platform that accelerates threat detection and response by showing the most important threats and how to mitigate them, on day one.
AlienVault USM utilizes a Kill Chain Taxonomy, which makes threat detection and prioritization easy. Our Kill Chain Taxonomy allows you to focus your attention on the most important threats by classifying attacks into five categories. It tells your IT team what are the most important threats facing your network right now.
Increase Situational Awareness with Integrated Threat Intelligence
Government agencies with limited IT staff often lack time to research new threats, or access to threat intelligence. This prevents them from being able to keep up with the constantly evolving threat landscape and answer critical questions about threats targeting their network, such as “who, what, why, and how”.
We understand that you lack the budget to hire dedicated security analysts to research data from your point-product security tools. The AlienVault Labs team acts like an extension of your IT team by conducting threat research and publishing weekly updates to the USM correlation rules that sift through the mountains of data in your log files to alert you of critical indicators of compromise.
Reduce Costs, Reduce Complexity
AlienVault USM’s unified approach puts all the security controls you need at your fingertips. Its flexible, open architecture also lets you integrate and correlate events from existing security products into its correlation engine for analysis. This single view accelerates and simplifies your ability to detect and respond to threats while also protecting your investment in legacy security tools.
Eliminating the manual monitoring of security point-products enables you to redeploy personnel to more productive tasks like responding to threats. AlienVault USM lets you make better use of scarce human resources by freeing them from the burden of managing separate security products to execute your cybersecurity strategy.
Improve Regulatory and Policy Compliance
Government agencies must meet a wide array of standards for information security controls and risk management, including DIACAP / DIARMF, DISA STIGs, CNSS 1253, NIST, PCI and more. Your IT team doesn’t have the time or resources to manually manage the network, monitor its security, and measure and report on cyber security policy compliance. USM automates and simplifies these manual processes, putting time back in your team’s day.
AlienVault USM continually monitors and evaluates your security controls, identifies and reports on important audit events, and alerts you to events that require immediate action. You can customize its flexible executive dashboard and reporting engine to demonstrate compliance with the specific standards required for your agency, and built-in reports are provided for many common compliance requirements.
