We’ve experienced firsthand just how frustrating and challenging security can be – the struggles with failing SIEM implementations; having to settle for inadequate security due to budget constraints; shelving hundreds of thousands of dollars of security software because it is just too hard to use; and, of course, the aftermath of security breaches that could have been prevented.
We founded AlienVault® to help organizations of all shapes and sizes achieve world-class security without the headaches and huge expense of other solutions. And we are passionate about our mission.

With our three products, the AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) platform for both on-premise deployments and in the AWS cloud, AlienVault Open Threat Exchange (OTX) and our open source SIEM, OSSIM™, we enable IT teams with limited resources to accelerate and simply threat detection and response, from day one. We solve the challenges so many organizations face: a lack of security expertise; too many point solutions that aren’t “talking” to each other; and the isolation that comes from relying only on the closed threat intelligence that accompanies security point products.
We continually update both our USM product and OSSIM project with threat data collected from the Open Threat Exchange, with more than 47,000 participants in 140 countries, who contribute over 4 million threat indicators daily. Of these, more than 17,000 members are actively collaborating in the new OTX portal. In addition, we continually and automatically update our USM product with AlienVault Labs Threat Intelligence for targeted detection and actionable guidance to effectively respond to the latest threats.
“AlienVault brings a full time function to large and small offices. We needed ‘around the clock security’ and AlienVault was the only one who could deliver that. Security is no longer a full time job when you have AlienVault.”
- Danny Santiago, Systems Administrator, City of Lewiston
“I didn’t fully realize how much value I would get out of USM until I started using it.”
- Matthew J. Frederickson, CISSP, Director of Information Technology, Council Rock
“As the ‘lone security ranger,’ there are a lot of things that keep me up at night – namely credit card data breaches and malware. I’m glad I have USM to provide the ability to detect malware and help us stay PCI compliant.”
- Kevin Geil, Information Security Officer, NYORDA
