More Than Just a SIEM

– It’s Unified Security Management!

Traditional SIEM solutions promise to provide what you need – but the path to get there is one most of us can’t afford. Traditional SIEM solutions integrate and analyze the data produced by other security technologies that are already deployed, but unfortunately most mid-market organizations don’t have those other technologies deployed yet!

AlienVault USM provides a different path. In addition to all the functionality of a traditional SIEM, AlienVault USM also builds the essential security capabilities into a single platform with no additional feature charges. And AlienVault’s focus on ease of use and deployment makes it the perfect fit for mid-market enterprises and organizations with limited budget and few in-house resources.

Assess Detect Respond with USM

Assess the Network to Find Devices, Services and Vulnerabilities

Within minutes of installing the USM product, our asset discovery features - Active Network Scanning, Passive Network Monitoring, Asset Inventory, - will provide you visibility into the assets on your network, what software is installed on them, how they’re configured, any potential vulnerabilities and active threats being executed against them. You’ll be able to quickly answer questions such as:

  • What devices are on my network?
  • What are users doing?
  • What vulnerabilities exist in my network?
  • Are there known attackers trying to interact with my network?
  • Are there active threats in my network?

Detect the Latest Threats (Without Your Own Research Team)

Busy IT security teams don’t have the time or the resources to research the latest threats on their own. AlienVault Labs threat research team spends countless hours mapping out the different types of attacks, the latest threats, suspicious behavior, vulnerabilities and exploits they uncover across the entire threat landscape. They leverage the power of OTX, the world’s largest community-powered repository of threat data to provide global insight into attack trends and bad actors.

The AlienVault Labs Threat Intelligence regularly publishes threat intelligence updates to the USM platform in the form of correlation directives, IDS signatures, vulnerability audits, asset discovery signatures, IP reputation data, data source plugins, and report templates.

Detect Threats Quickly and Accelerate Compliance

Unlike preventative-only security tools (e.g., firewalls, anti-virus, etc.), and single-purpose monitoring tools (SIEM, IDS, vulnerability assessment, log management, etc.), AlienVault’s USM platform provides a unified approach to threat detection and compliance management.

We don’t make false promises of 100% protection with our USM platform, but rather quickly detect threats and accelerate compliance by delivering unified and coordinated security monitoring capabilities, powered by the latest threat intelligence and access to a community of practitioners for collaborative defense.

PCI, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley and other compliance mandates are an ongoing concern for many of our customers. AlienVault USM makes your compliance task easier by:

  • Providing you a quick and easy way to deploy the security technology necessary for many of the compliance requirements
  • Allowing you to determine performance against compliance requirements, such as mandated vulnerability scans, access controls, logging and retention of logs
  • Allowing you to manage and ensure performance of ongoing compliance tasks
  • Providing compliance reports to inform management and help you pass audits
