AlienVault Earns Five-Star Rating in SC Magazine SIEM Product Review

AlienVault Unified Security Management™ v4.1 Platform Recognized for its Extreme Flexibility, Quality and Ease of Use

SAN MATEO, Calif. - (April 16, 2013) - AlienVault, the leading Unified Security Management provider committed to making security visibility complete, simple and affordable, today announced it achieved a Five-Star rating in the SC Magazine SIEM Group Review. AlienVault’s Unified Security Management (USM) platform was recognized for its flexibility, quality and ease of use. 

AlienVault also announced today the industry’s first Unified Security Management virtual appliance. A free trial of the USM virtual appliance is available immediately for download from the company’s website, and the new product is offered commercially at a variety of new price points intended to put USM within easy reach of any security budget.

AlienVault’s USM platform leverages proven technologies for asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, threat detection, behavioral monitoring and security intelligence. These essential security capabilities are pre-integrated and tuned to provide complete security visibility, compliance and threat management through an easy-to-use management console.

“AlienVault is honored to receive the Five-Star designation from SC Magazine for our Unified Security Management platform,” said Barmak Meftah, President and CEO of AlienVault. “We were the only product among the solutions evaluated that actually goes beyond SIEM to provide all of the essential security capabilities built into one complete package.  The positive review and recognition of AlienVault’s quality and ease of use further demonstrates that we provide great value, especially to organizations that might otherwise lack the resources to purchase, integrate and maintain many different point solutions.”

Along with the overall 5-star rating, SC Magazine highlighted the following benefits:

  • Simple Case Management Workflow: “As incidents are identified, a ticket is opened and sent to an investigator or an analyst. The list-supported system is impressive. AlienVault’s USM was the first product that auto-generated an incident ticket during the start-up phase of initializing the product.”
  • Options for Reporting Formats:  “When a report is being generated, the user is presented with a number of options regarding the format of the document. No cryptic formatting language is required.”
  • Overall Good Value & Price: “AlienVault’s Unified Security Management platform is a good value for the price given its performance, functionality and presentation.”

AlienVault’s USM platform is the only all-in-one solution that also provides access to two threat intelligence services: the Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX), a community-sourced exchange with up-to-the minute threat information submitted by thousands of security professionals worldwide, and AlienVault Labs Threat Intelligence.
