Appliance Monitoring Service

The AlienVault® Appliance Monitoring Service (AMS) provides you with a proactive, expert service that accelerates and simplifies your ability to maintain the performance and security of your USM Appliance™ assets.

AMS enables you to focus on responding to threats and improving your security posture while AlienVault handles the essential maintenance of up to 15 AlienVault USM appliances (All-in-One, Sensor, Logger, Server) for one low price.

The Appliance Monitoring Service includes:

  • Hourly check-ups of all your AlienVault devices (hardware appliances, virtual appliances, or cloud appliances) to ensure your appliances are running as effectively as possible
  • Seamless monthly updates managed by AlienVault Support
  • Fast identification, diagnosis and problem resolution

Most support programs are designed to be reactive — once an appliance stops working, the support team jumps on the problem. Our Appliance Monitoring Service is different — it ensures your AlienVault USM Appliance devices are healthy, fully functional, and problem-free, providing continuity to your threat detection and response capabilities.

The Appliance Monitoring Service Includes:

Hourly Health
Checks

Every hour, AlienVault performs the following steps as part of the health check (whether you have All-in-One appliances or separate USM Appliance components, the checks are the same):

Monthly Updates

Every month our expert certified engineers update your appliance to the latest AlienVault firmware version to ensure that your threat detection, response, and regulatory compliance capabilities are fully up to date.

  • Ensuring your USM appliances have the latest Threat Intelligence updates installed
  • Verifying the integrity of the USM Appliance packages installed on your system
  • Checking all USM Appliance processes
  • Confirming USM Appliance disk usage is within expected thresholds, as well as swap, connectivity and database health
  • Ensuring that all AlienVault USM Appliance devices in your deployment are running the latest firmware, including ad-hoc updates and patches
  • Verifying that the update was successful and that the appliance is functioning correctly
  • Deploying the update in a time window that minimizes disruption to security and network operations
