5 Essential Security Capabilities in a Single Console

The AlienVault Unified Security Management™ (USM) platform provides five essential security capabilities in a single console, giving you everything you need to manage both compliance and threats.

Deployment Options That Fit Your Unique Network

All of the AlienVault USM products are available in various models, based on size, scale, and configuration requirements. To make things even easier,
no matter what deployment option you choose, every AlienVault component works the same way and is fully interoperable with all other models,
minimizing the training costs. For example, you can deploy a AlienVault USM Server as hardware appliance, Sensors as virtual appliances, and a
Logger as a harware appliances if that is what your business requires. The important thing is that no matter where your assets are and what your
network looks like, you have full security visibility – all managed in one place.
Additionally, you can instantly upgrade each of our USM products as your environment changes and needs evolve. Start out small and quickly
expand your deployment, leveraging the power of Unified Security Management from day one.
