Log watch The log watch functionality in the Smart Event Collector has been deprecated in AlienVault USM and OSSIM. Deprecation means that we will no longer be doing development on that feature. This functionality may also be removed from the product at a later release date.
Compliance mapping The compliance mapping functionality has been deprecated in AlienVault USM. Deprecation means that we will no longer be doing development on that feature. This functionality may also be removed from the product at a later release date.
This will not remove the ability to report on compliance regulations (PCI DSS 3.2 and ISO 27001:2012). AlienVault will continue to deliver new and updated compliance reports. For questions or additional information regarding this deprecation notice, contact AlienVault Support.
