AlienVault, the company with the cool logo, has really outdone themselves with the Unified Security Management Platform (USM).
This one leads two lives: a SIEM in its own right or a tool that can work alongside other, perhaps larger, SIEMs.
Excellent value and wide-ranging capabilities perhaps unexpected in such a modestly priced package.
Probably the most complete pure-play SIEM we’ve seen with the added benefit of many next-gen features and superlative correlation and analytics.
Probably the most comprehensive and powerful SIEM we’ve seen, continuing the legacy of the old Nitro product up to the present time.

We like a product that actually is a solution. Solution is one of those hype-laden marketing buzzwords that says, “We’re not sure why you need this but it’s a solution.”
The problem this tool is addressing is twofold: lack of visibility in the cloud and inefficient security controls.
The silver bullet of data security is encryption. Simple, right? Not so fast…there are several issues, especially in a virtual environment, that make that simple statement a little more difficult in practice.
Kaspersky has built itself up from a purveyor of anti-virus software to a full-blown security management company and has now moved into the virtual environment with this offering. Right from the first, we were impressed.
We’ve seen user isolation in the cloud before and some of it is very effective. Typically, users are directed to a cloud service that spots malware and then refuses to deliver content that is infected.
