AlienVault® USM Appliance™

Backup and Restoration

AlienVault USM Appliance does not offer a tool to back up or restore the entire system collectively. However, you can back up or restore your data and system configurations separately. You can also restore the USM Appliance hardware appliance to its factory status if needed.

If you need to transfer backup files from one USM Appliance to another, for example, from a defective USM Appliance to its RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) replacement, you can use either an SFTP client on Windows, such as WinSCP; or the SCP protocol on Linux.
