AlienVault, the company behind open source SIEM, OSSIM, today announced that its Unified Security Management (USM) suite is now available as a virtual appliance.

AlienVault, the company behind open source SIEM, OSSIM, today announced that its Unified Security Management (USM) suite is now available as a virtual appliance.

AlienVault’s USM platform combines several open source tools for asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, threat detection, behavioral monitoring and security intelligence through a central management console.

“AlienVault’s new virtual appliance reduces complexity, making it easy for a company of any size to gain immediate security visibility, compliance and threat management capabilities in just a few quick steps,” said Russell Spitler, Vice President of Product Management at AlienVault.

Key features of the AlienVault Unified Security Management virtual appliance include:

• Five security capabilities including asset detection, vulnerability assessment, threat detection, behavioral monitoring and security intelligence built-in for comprehensive security visibility and threat protection.

• Compatibility with VMware ESXi and Proxmox virtual environments.

• Simpler HIDS deployment for distributed environments, as well as enhanced and centralized HIDS administration via web-based user interface.

• Continuous vulnerability monitoring that increases vulnerability detection accuracy and avoids network disruption.

“The sometimes underserved midmarket enterprise needs its security requirements fulfilled without having to invest significantly in architecture or products and almost certainly without having to expand its IT department,” said Javvad Malik, Senior Analyst in the Enterprise Security Practice of 451 Research. “AlienVault’s Unified Security Management platform will hit the nail on the head for most of these organizations. By bundling and integrating security controls such as IDS, IPS, asset discovery, vulnerability scanners and security intelligence, and supporting both virtual and cloud environments at a competitive price point, AlienVault has the potential to make significant inroads into the mid-market.”

Pricing for the AlienVault USM virtual appliance starts at $3,600 for smaller, single tier deployments, and steps up to a version targeted to mid-sized organizations which starts at $17,500. Larger organizations needing support for distributed environments will need to jump to AlienVault’s more costly USM hardware appliance-based Enterprise version. Support and maintenance as well as a subscription to AlienVault Labs Threat Intelligence is included for the first year. 

“By offering both physical and virtual appliances, AlienVault gives companies the flexibility to choose which Unified Security Management solution is best for their environment,” Spitler said.
