AlienVault customers range from telecom giants like Telefonica (the 3rd largest telco in the world), Metro de Madrid (the 6th longest Rail system in the world), defense organizations like the Spanish Army, regional governments like Andalucia in Spain, municipalities like the City of Los Angeles, schools like Marquette University, hospitality companies like Xanterra Parks and Resorts and many banks across Spain, Latin America and the United States.
the 3rd largest Telco in the world
Telefonica (TFE), headquartered in Madrid, Spain, is the third-largest telecommunications provider in the world with more than $80 billion in revenue in 2010. With over a quarter million employees in 25 countries, Telefonica ranks in the top ten percent of the FT Global 500. It provides fixed and mobile telephony, Internet and digital television services across Europe and the Americas through its proprietary networks and in Asia through its affiliates.
With hundreds of millions of individual customers, and hundreds of thousands of business clients ranging from small businesses to global multinationals and government agencies, it can’t afford anything to go wrong.

With AlienVault we are able to definitively know what is happening on our management networks in terms of security.
We simply could not have spent what a similarly complete security solution would have cost.

Marquette’s IT services department had no ability to monitor the hundreds of servers, thousands of students and terabytes of data that flow through their 10G network.
Individually collecting logs from a large number of network infrastructure components, servers and authentication/ access control systems was a daunting and time-consuming task when trying to trace potential security incidents and prevent data breaches. Responding to security incidents in a timely manner proved impossible.
AlienVault has been an indispensable tool in Marquette’s move from a reactionary to a proactive security posture; security is so much about visibility – you can only cursorily protect what you can’t see. AlienVault helped turn the lights on.

6th Largest Public Railway
Metro Madrid is the public rail transportation system for Madrid, Spain, and one of the largest metropolitan rail systems in the world. With 175 miles of track and 300 stations, collectively its complex network includes thousands of switches, routers, firewalls and wireless access points but, perhaps more interestingly, it has tens of thousands of end devices – from wireless devices on board trains and signaling systems, to lifts, escalators, PCs and even ladders!
Only by ensuring the security of these IT and control system networks can it deliver modern, fast and economically efficient services.
The AlienVault platform has proved that it can scale. We use it to monitor 4500 devices and over 50,000 servers across 300 railway stations as well as secure internet access for the 2.5 million customers we serve each day.

The City of Los Angeles
The Information Technology Agency (ITA) manages the IT infrastructure and its security for the City of Los Angeles – part of the greater Los Angeles Metro area with a population of 13M. The ITA needed to secure the city’s computer infrastructure – a large network with several thousand routers and switches and over 500 application and web servers and mainframes. This incorporates its financial systems, LAPD (police department) and critical systems for all departments. As it includes ten websites that process credit cards payments, the agency also needed to ensure its systems were com- pliant with the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).
As with all governmental agencies its budget was minimal, to non-existent, and although the agency has 500 people, only a few are directly tasked with securing the City’s systems.
“We deployed a leading SIEM for security management, but because of budget constraints, we couldn’t cover all the devices we needed to monitor…. AlienVault’s bundled VA and IDS capabilities save the city money that would otherwise be spent on additional products.”
Brian Cao, System Programmer, City of Los Angeles
