AlienVault has launched the latest version of its unified security management (USM) platform to include over 200 enhancements. 

The company said that the USM 4.0 platform's new features include a web interface that centralises configuration, monitoring and management of all AlienVault security tools and components, as well as offering asset detection, vulnerability assessment, threat detection, behavioural monitoring and security intelligence capabilities.

A community-sourced threat database and intelligence feed named AlienVault Open Threat Exchange is built in that provides users with real-time collaborative defence, according to AlienVault. The company has also launched a new community forum to provide users with an online resource for technical support, product guides and interactive discussion on relevant security threats and trends.

Russell Spitler, vice president of product management at AlienVault, said: “Our USM platform brings together all of the necessary components for deep visibility across the enterprise.

“In conjunction with our threat intelligence service, we've made it easy for any organisation to establish a sophisticated and comprehensive security program without the overhead and deployment challenges that come with multiple complicated, disconnected tools.”
