Government agencies face the challenges of demonstrating government cyber security best practices with limited resources.

There is no way to prevent a dedicated, patient attacker from breaching your network. Relying on preventive tools that sit at the network edge is not enough—you need cyber security threat detection inside your network as well.
AlienVault’s USM platform puts built-in, essential security controls and seamlessly integrated threat intelligence, powered by AlienVault Labs, into the hands of government IT teams with limited resources. You can now deploy a single platform that accelerates threat detection and response by showing the most important threats and how to mitigate them, on day one.
AlienVault USM utilizes a Kill Chain Taxonomy, which makes threat detection and prioritization easy. Our Kill Chain Taxonomy allows you to focus your attention on the most important threats by classifying attacks into five categories. It tells your IT team what are the most important threats facing your network right now.
Limited government IT staffs often lack time to research new threats, or access to threat intelligence. This prevents them from being able to answer critical questions about threats targeting your network, such as “who, what, why, and how” as well as keeping up with constantly evolving threat landscape.
We understand that you lack the budget to hire dedicated security analysts to research data from your point-product security tools. The AlienVault Labs team acts like an extension of your IT team by conducting the threat research and writing the correlation rules that sift through the mountains of data in your log files to find those few critical indicators of compromise.
Reduce costs, reduce complexity
AlienVault USM’s unified approach puts all the security controls you need at your fingertips. Its flexible, open architecture also lets you integrate and correlate events from existing security products into its correlation engine for analysis. This single view accelerates and simplifies your ability to detect and respond to threats while also protecting your investment in legacy security tools.
Eliminating the manual monitoring of security point-products enables you to redeploy personnel to more productive tasks like responding to threats. AlienVault USM lets you make better use of scarce human resources by freeing them from the burden of managing separate security products to execute your cybersecurity strategy.
Government agencies must meet a wide array of standards for information security controls and risk management, including DIACAP / DIARMF, DISA STIGs, CNSS 1253, NIST, and more. Your IT team doesn’t have the time or resources to manually manage the network, monitor its security, and measure and report on cybersecurity policy compliance. USM automates and simplifies these manual processes, putting time back in your team’s day.
AlienVault USM continually monitors and evaluates your security controls, identifies and reports on important audit events, and alerts you to events that require immediate action. You can customize its flexible executive dashboard and reporting engine to demonstrate compliance with the specific standards required for your agency.
