Maximize your SIEM investment at a fraction of the cost of supporting AlienVault in-house

AlienVault® Unified Security Management® (USM) appliance and USM Anywhere ™ combine powerful SIEM and log management capabilities with other essential security tools, including asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, and intrusion detection.

The power and breadth of the AlienVault platform that makes it such an effective tool can also make it overwhelming to learn and manage.

With more than 20 years’ cybersecurity and compliance experience, Sword & Shield Enterprise Security partners with you through our AlienVault Managed Security Service to provide 24x7x365 monitoring and management of your AlienVault solution.

Overcome the Obstacles to Managing AlienVault

The biggest hurdle to managing a SIEM in-house and full time is creating and staffing the security operations center itself. Providing 24x7x365 coverage requires more staff than you might realize since turnover, scheduling, ramp-up time, emergencies and more must be taken into account.

Outsourcing your AlienVault management to Sword & Shield overcomes the following obstacles at a fraction of the cost of handling this considerable effort in-house:

  • Finding the right people and in great enough numbers
  • Training staff
  • Weathering turnover
  • Scheduling and dealing with conflicts
  • Acquiring physical space
  • Keeping systems up to date

AlienVault is a powerful tool, rich with capabilities. You need someone who knows it inside and out to ensure you fully leverage the product.

Ways to Work with our MSSP
