AlienVault has emerged to be a leader in the security information and event management (SIEM) space in recent years, thanks to its open-source and commercial offerings.
In a video interview with eWEEK, AlienVault CTO Roger Thornton explains how the term SIEM only really refers to part of what his company’s technologies offer. AlienVault is the lead sponsor behind the Open Source Security Information Management (OSSIM) platform, on which the AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) commercial product is built.
AlienVault updated both OSSIM and USM to version 4.5 in February. The company has raised $62 million in funding to date to fuel its efforts.
