Magic Quadrant for SIEM 2015

LONDON, 22 July 2015 – AlienVault has been named by Gartner as the only Visionary in their Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) for a fourth consecutive year. First highlighted by Gartner in the 2011 Magic Quadrant for SIEM, AlienVault has been acknowledged as a Visionary ever since.

Gartner’s Magic Quadrants

Magic Quadrants are annual reports put together by IT research firm Gartner, which identifies leading vendors in particular fields, and measures them against a vertical axis “Ability to Execute” and a horizontal axis “Completeness of Vision”. The comparisons are made through interviews and Vendor Briefings, weighing up not just the market share or revenue generated, but also against their vision and development plans for the solution.

Infosec Partners’ Director of Security, Mark Oakton comments.

AlienVault meets a lot of needs for our clients. Their competitive and flexible solutions means that we can implement USM easily and effectively as part of their tailored cybersecurity strategy.

SIEM vs USM

Security intelligence helps achieve visibility on what is happening in an organizations’ network environment from a threat and compliance standpoint. Traditional SIEM products typically focus on the Event Correlation component and require extensive integration with other 3rd party solutions, so it’s no coincidence that these traditional and more expensive competitors of AlienVault, are often deployed by Enterprises with very large budgets and large security teams, over a longer period of time.

AlienVault offers organizations a more holistic approach to security, through a Unified Security Management (USM) solution. By offering excellent SIEM Log/Event Management and Correlation, and marrying these to security technologies such as Asset Discovery, Vulnerability Assessment, Intrusion Detection, and Continuous Threat Intelligence, this results in an effective integrated solution that can be implemented and managed in far less time and at a fraction of the cost.

Perfect for Small and Midsize

With solutions that were previously only affordable to large enterprise organizations, now much more attainable through AlienVault’s USM, Infosec Partners expects even more of its small and midsize clients to implement SIEM. Because AlienVault’s USM provides built-in essential security capability on top of all the functionality of a traditional SIEM, without the financial impact of a tradition SIEM solution, it certainly offers an extremely attractive solution for those looking to optimize their security budget.

It takes Vision…

Whether part of a strategy to strengthen security posture, or to meet with compliance requirements such as PCI DSS, the choice of which SIEM solution to implement needs to be well thought through first. As a trusted adviser to significant organizations, Infosec Partners has a track record of guiding executive teams with their overall security strategy, as well as having teams of technical experts to deploy, configure and manage solutions such as SIEM and USM.

Although principally vendor agnostic, Infosec Partners recognizes and appreciates the effectiveness of what AlienVault has to offer. Indeed many clients of Infosec Partners continue to be satisfied with their USM implementation.
