Accelerate GDPR Compliance with Unified Security Management
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires organizations handling the personal data of European Union citizens to keep that data secure, and it levies big penalties to organizations that fail to comply. Unfortunately, traditional security monitoring solutions may fall short of helping organizations meet GDPR requirements.
AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) provides a unified security monitoring and compliance management platform to accelerate GDPR compliance readiness. By integrating multiple capabilities into a single platform, AlienVault USM gives you visibility into your entire security posture and simplifies the compliance process.
GDPR requires organizations to maintain a plan to detect a data breach, regularly evaluate the effectiveness of security practices, and document evidence of compliance. Instead of specific technical direction, the regulation puts the onus on organizations to maintain best practices for data security.
Starting on Day One, AlienVault USM supports GDPR compliance readiness by helping you detect data breaches, monitor data security, and document your compliance readiness. The unified platform centralizes essential capabilities like asset discovery, vulnerability scanning, intrusion detection, behavioral monitoring, SIEM, log management, and threat intelligence updates.
AlienVault USM delivers the essential security capabilities you need from GDPR compliance software:

Efficiently Detect, Investigate, and Report on Data Breaches
To achieve GDPR compliance, you need to demonstrate that you have a plan in place to monitor the critical infrastructure housing the personal data of EU citizens. AlienVault USM provides essential security monitoring capabilities to help you detect, investigate, and report on data breaches within your environments.
Network intrusion detection (NIDS) identifies threats using signature-based anomaly detection, collecting data from your on-premises environments to spot malicious attacks, malware intrusions, and other potential threats to your data.
AlienVault USM Anywhere™ delivers native cloud intrusion detection capabilities for Azure and AWS, allowing you to detect intrusions within your public cloud environments. USM Anywhere provides visibility into your security posture across your on-premises, public cloud, and private cloud environments, as well as cloud applications like Microsoft Office 365 and Google G Suite.
Host intrusion detection (HIDS) and file integrity monitoring (FIM) provide security visibility at the application layer, allowing you to detect activity such as potential system compromise, rogue processes, and changes to critical configuration files.
When AlienVault USM detects a threat within your environments, it creates an alarm to direct your attention to it, allowing you to respond quickly and limit the scope of a potential intrusion. USM intelligently prioritizes alarms based on the severity of threat, so you know which incidents to respond to first.
You can easily search and filter the log data within AlienVault USM to investigate potential intrusions and access all the information you might need for detailed investigation in the wake of a data breach. Granular search and filtering functions allow you to pivot around selected data for deeper analysis.
