Grazed from AlienVault
AlienVault, the leading provider of Unified Security Management (USM) and crowdsourced threat intelligence, today announced the availability of USM Anywhere, the first all-in-one Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) security monitoring platform designed to centralize threat detection, incident response, and compliance management of cloud, hybrid cloud, and on-premises environments from a single cloud-based console.
Built natively in the cloud to monitor hybrid cloud environments, USM Anywhere is a comprehensive, unified solution that significantly simplifies security and reduces deployment time, so that companies of all sizes can go from installation to first insight within minutes. USM Anywhere also provides advanced automated response orchestration with external security tools and applications, making it easier for IT teams to respond quickly and efficiently to identified threats.
Simplifying Threat Detection and Response
Security management can be a complex, time-consuming, and expensive undertaking for all organizations, but especially for those with limited security resources, time, and budget. 90 percent of all companies also report that they are concerned about cloud security. AlienVault uniquely addresses these concerns by providing organizations of all sizes with the same threat detection capabilities as Fortune 500 companies utilize, without the headaches and hassles of deploying, integrating, and managing multiple products.
“AlienVault has been rethinking cybersecurity and meeting the needs of resource-constrained organizations for nearly a decade with our USM Appliance and Open Threat Exchange offerings,” said Denny LeCompte, senior vice president of products at AlienVault. “Instead of making security complex and costly, we chose to focus on a unified approach that simplifies it. This same philosophy is the foundation of USM Anywhere. At a price point that any business can afford, USM Anywhere offers comprehensive visibility into the entire IT infrastructure – cloud and on-premises – for effective threat detection, incident response, and compliance management.”
Jason Weitzman, a long-time customer of USM and security engineer at Colony Starwood Homes, was looking for an all-in-one solution for his hybrid cloud environment. Though he considered products offered by Rapid7 and LogRhythm, he was keen to test out USM Anywhere and has been impressed with the results.
“With USM Anywhere, I can monitor both my cloud environment and my local environment together, and I no longer have to use my own hardware for number crunching and analysis – that’s all handled by USM Anywhere in the cloud,” said Weitzman. “This product brings together everything I need under one roof, and the enhanced reporting and dashboard make things much easier to manage for small teams—in this case a team of one. In my experience, AlienVault is the only company that makes this possible.”
Key features of USM Anywhere include:
Extensibility of USM Anywhere
The essential capabilities offered in USM Anywhere are extended with AlienApps, out-of-the-box integrations with leading security tools such as Cisco Umbrella and McAfee ePO. With the ability to perform data extraction, data visualization, and security orchestration of third-party security applications and tools directly from within USM Anywhere, AlienApps enable users to leverage the USM Anywhere platform as a single point of security monitoring for their entire IT landscape.
AlienVault will demonstrate USM Anywhere at the RSA Conference (booth #1215) in San Francisco, which will take place Feb. 14-16, 2017.
