AlienVault Launches USM 5.2 For Data Security Compliance

Platform Delivers Over 30 Audit-Ready Reports for PCI-DSS 3.1 and HIPAA, Along With Rapid Report Delivery

SAN MATEO, CA – October 6, 2015 – AlienVault™, the leading provider of Unified Security Management™ and crowd-sourced threat intelligence, today announced Unified Security Management (USM) 5.2, an enhanced version of its all-in-one security platform that puts built-in, essential security controls and threat intelligence into the hands of IT teams with limited resources, accelerating detection and response to emerging threats. The newest version of USM significantly improves the ability of IT teams to measure and report on compliance status with updated reports that provide improved visibility into the security status of critical assets that auditors typically monitor. 

IT teams are spending much of their already-limited resources trying to demonstrate regulatory compliance, as more industries seek to increase data security, or penalize non-compliance, in light of high-profile breaches. To accelerate the compliance process, customers need detailed reports that not only satisfy the regulation but provide the information in an audit-ready format. Based on feedback from auditors and compliance experts, AlienVault USM now delivers more than 30 new audit-ready reports for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) 3.1 and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to answer the most common questions from auditors. Updates to existing reports are also delivered separately from platform updates, allowing users to stay up-to-date with the latest changes to regulatory requirements.

“IT teams of all sizes suffer from too much data and not enough information, as security tools generate a steady stream of alerts about important, and sometimes not so important, activity,” said Jim Hansen, Vice President of Product Management at AlienVault. “The recent enhancements to USM enable IT teams to see detailed threat descriptions and remediation advice for every alert, and make compliance measurement, reporting and audits painless for already-strapped teams.”

AlienVault recently marked another record year, with bookings growth exceeding 65 percent year over year and new customer growth exceeding 75 percent year over year. Today, more than 2,000 customers and government organizations including Columbia University, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, NASA and Save Mart rely on the AlienVault USM platform and Open Threat Exchange (OTX) to detect, defend against and respond to today’s cybersecurity threats in minutes. AlienVault was once again positioned in the Visionary quadrant of the 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), which recognizes the value of its innovative approach to deliver affordable security solutions for organizations of all sizes.
