AlienVault Placed in Visionaries Quadrant of Magic Quadrant for SIEM

Unified Security Management provider included in Gartner Critical Capabilities for Security Information and Event Management

San Mateo, Calif. (May 14, 2013) – AlienVault, the leading Unified Security Management provider committed to making security visibility complete, simple and affordable, announced today that is has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant of the 2013 “Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management”* for the second consecutive year. In addition, AlienVault was included in the “Critical Capabilities for Security Information and Event Management”* report for being one of the largest participants in the SIEM market as determined by Gartner.

One of only 16 companies included in the Magic Quadrant, and the only company to be positioned in the Visionaries quadrant, AlienVault was recognized for its ability to execute and completeness of vision. AlienVault provides integrated SIEM, file integrity monitoring, vulnerability assessment and both host-based and network-based intrusion detection system capabilities, all of which are enabled in each of the three versions of its Unified Security Management platform.

“For the second year in a row, Gartner has positioned AlienVault in the Visionaries quadrant, which we believe is great validation of the breadth of our capabilities and our mission to provide enterprise-class security visibility to all companies, no matter their size,” said Roger Thornton, AlienVault Chief Technology Officer. “In just over a year, AlienVault has delivered on this vision with continued innovation in our Unified Security Management platform as well as with the release of the AlienVault Open Threat Exchange™. Combined, these technologies provide the most comprehensive security visibility and threat intelligence solution available today.”

AlienVault is also the latest vendor to be included in Gartner’s “Critical Capabilities for Security Information and Event Management” report, which is written to help SIEM buyers to define their requirements and select the appropriate technology. In the report, AlienVault was assessed against a set of critical capabilities, such as real-time monitoring, threat intelligence, deployment and support simplicity, as well as common use cases such as SIEM, threat management and compliance.

“AlienVault is changing the way that businesses think about security,” continued Thornton. “You shouldn’t have to be the largest company with the biggest bank account to afford enterprise-class security. AlienVault delivers each of the essential security capabilities built-in to a single, extensible platform that is quick to deploy, easy to use and affordable for companies of any size.”

AlienVault recently released the industry's first Unified Security Management Virtual Appliance and free trial, along with tiered pricing options to put security visibility within easy reach of any organization and budget.
