San Mateo, California – February 2, 2016 – AlienVault™, the leading provider of Unified Security Management™ solutions and crowd-sourced threat intelligence, today announced that it ended 2015 with unprecedented momentum. The company closed out the year with more than 55 percent year-over-year sales growth and increased its install base to over 3,000 commercial customers. AlienVault’s new customer wins came from a broad range of industries around the globe, ranging from mid-sized companies, regional banks, retailers, healthcare organizations and universities to large government agencies such as City of Lewiston, The University of Oklahoma, McCurrach, NetPay, Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, Bank of Marin, Good Samaritan Hospital, and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.
AlienVault attributes its 2015 momentum to increased deployments of its Unified Security Management (USM) platform, a comprehensive and affordable threat detection and incident response solution, which leverages AlienVault Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX), the world’s largest crowd-sourced threat intelligence network. AlienVault’s unified approach to security management provides complete security visibility, enabling the smallest IT departments to the largest teams at enterprise-level organizations to detect and respond to threats and manage their environments more effectively.
“AlienVault’s exceptional year is a reflection of the unique capabilities we offer to enable organizations of all types and sizes to quickly detect and mitigate the impact of a breach,” said Barmak Meftah, president and CEO at AlienVault. “The security concerns have not changed significantly; however, the cybersecurity skills shortage is on the rise. As more organizations struggle with the challenges of hiring and retaining staff, as well as the complexity of deploying and managing multiple products, we saw a surge in both end user customers and MSSP partners deploying USM.”
AlienVault®, an AT&T Company, has simplified the way organizations detect and respond to today’s ever evolving threat landscape. Our unique and award-winning approach, trusted by thousands of customers, combines the essential security controls of our all-in-one platform, AlienVault Unified Security Management®, with the power of AlienVault’s Open Threat Exchange®, the world’s largest crowd-sourced threat intelligence community, making effective and affordable threat detection attainable for resource constrained IT teams.
