AlienVault Virtual Appliance

AlienVault released the first AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) virtual appliance. AlienVault USM is a collection of open source tools for asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, threat detection, behavioral monitoring, and built-in security intelligence. These integrated tools are optimized to provide complete security visibility and threat management through a management console. According to the announcement, this consolidation of security features into a single management platform lets AlienVault USM deliver rapid security intelligence. The product, which is compatible with VMware ESXi and Proxmox virtual environments, also offers simpler host-based intrusion detection system (HIDS) deployment for distributed environments and continuous vulnerability monitoring to increase detection accuracy and avoid network disruption. Each alarm from AlienVault USM includes detailed and customized instructions on how to investigate and respond to the detected threat.

A free trial of the AlienVault USM virtual appliance is available now for download from the company's website. Pricing for the AlienVault USM All-in-One appliance, which is aimed at smaller, single-tier deployments, starts at US$ 3,600 and includes free customer support and maintenance for the first year.
