More than 11,000 Security Practitioners Rely on AlienVault for Unified Security Management
San Mateo, California – Feb. 19, 2014 – AlienVault™, the leading provider of Unified Security Management™ solutions and crowd-sourced threat intelligence, today announced that more than 11,000 security practitioners have actively deployed AlienVault’s Unified Security Management (USM) platform and OSSIM, the open source SIEM project, to provide broad security visibility across their environment for improved threat detection and response. Attendees at the 2014 RSA Conference in San Francisco will be able to view demonstrations of USM 4.5 at the AlienVault booth, #1701, on February 24–27, 2014. USM 4.5 is expected to be generally available in March with pricing starting at $3600.
Based on the open source project OSSIM, the AlienVault USM platform provides a way for organizations with limited security staff and budget to address compliance and threat management needs. With all of the essential security controls built-in, and continuous threat intelligence updates from AlienVault Labs and AlienVault’s Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX), USM provides unparalleled security visibility.
