AlienVault Unveils Latest Unified Security Management Platform

AlienVault, the only open and collaborative Unified Security Management platform delivering built-in controls and full visibility, today announced the latest version of its suite of security management products. Based on the open source project OSSIM, the AlienVault Unified Security Management™ (AV-USM™) platform combines more than 30 of the best security tools to provide users with five essential security capabilities in a single management console. The latest version of the AV-USM platform offers significant enhancements in scalability, performance, usability and customer support.

“Our unified security management platform brings together all of the necessary components for deep visibility across the enterprise,” said Russ Spitler, VP of Product Management at AlienVault. “In conjunction with our threat intelligence service, we’ve made it easy for any organization to establish a sophisticated and comprehensive security program without the overhead and deployment challenges that come with multiple complicated, disconnected tools.”

The AlienVault Unified Security Management 4.0 platform includes more than 200 enhancements and new features such as:

  • AlienVault Center: An easy-to-use web interface that centralizes configuration, monitoring and management of all AlienVault security tools and components.
  • Dynamic Asset Inventory: Enhanced forensic visibility into dynamic environments for improved incident response; deep historical insight into the state and configuration of assets, including details on which services were running, what users were authenticated and the configuration of network interfaces.
  • Enhanced Event Processing and Storage: Up to 3x improvement in event throughput for improved correlation and up to 6x increase in time window of event storage for better forensic investigation.

AlienVault’s Unified Security Management platform offers asset detection, vulnerability assessment, threat detection, behavioral monitoring and security intelligence capabilities in a single, unified solution. AlienVault Open Threat Exchange, the largest community-sourced threat database and intelligence feed, is built into the AV-USM platform and OSSIM to provide users with real-time collaborative defense.

"It is the combination of real-time monitoring, context like threat, vulnerability, user, asset, data and application and 'smart eyeballs' that will improve a company's chances of early breach detection beyond the current 15% success rate," said Mark Nicolett, research vice president, Gartner, Inc. in his report, Using SIEM for Targeted Attack Detection, published March 2012. "A unified approach for SIEM is more effective when management processes have been implemented and there is some degree of role-based access control."

AlienVault has launched a new community forum to provide the more than 160,000 OSSIM and AlienVault users with an online resource for technical support, product guides and interactive discussion on relevant security threats and trends. AlienVault is committed to supporting OSSIM and the OSSIM community, both critical elements of the company’s continued growth and success.

AlienVault has also continued to improve its “LightSpeed” customer support program by combining hardware and software support into a single solution support service. In addition, the company announced a new partnership with MBX Systems, an award-winning appliance manufacturer selected for its commitment to quality, innovation and customer service.

The latest version of the AlienVault Unified Security Management platform is available now.
