• We meet the needs of the underserved mid-market:
AlienVault has simplified the way that organizations detect and respond to today’s ever evolving threat landscape. Trusted by thousands of customers, our unique and award-winning approach combines the essential security controls of our all-in-one platform, AlienVault Unified Security Management, with the power of AlienVault’s Open Threat Exchange, the world’s largest crowd-sourced threat intelligence community.

AlienVault is committed to offering a range of solutions to suit any budget. USM is an all-in-one platform that provides complete security visibility for budget-conscious organizations. USM’s threat detection capabilities are enhanced by intelligence from both AlienVault Labs and our Open Threat Exchange (OTX), the largest open forum for sharing crowd-sourced threat intelligence. However, we also offer a free, open source platform for security monitoring and threat detection called OSSIM (Open Source Security Information Management), used world-wide by approximately 200,000 security professionals in 175 countries.

AlienVault is passionate about putting customers first in everything we do. We want to make it easy for organizations to start detecting threats from day one. Because of this, we’ve packaged our tools and intelligence into an intuitive, easy-to-use product that is simple to set up and operate, and that provides users with easy access to critical information from day one. LightSpeed support provides USM customers with access to our world-class support team and online portal where they can access resources as well as submit and track support cases. In addition, AlienVault training classes and webcasts provide customers with the instruction and hands-on practice they need to install, deploy, configure, and optimally operate our USM platform.
In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
At AlienVault, we understand just how frustrating and challenging security can be, especially for mid-market organizations. Small to mid-sized businesses are at the greatest risk of cyber-attack primarily due to a lack of staff and budget. We founded AlienVault to help organizations with limited resources streamline and accelerate their ability to protect their assets in response to the proliferation of cyber threats in the landscape.
AlienVault’s award-winning Unified Security Management (USM) platform is designed to ensure that small to mid-market organizations, especially those with small IT teams, can effectively defend themselves from emerging security threats. USM provides users with five essential security capabilities in a single console: asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, behavioral monitoring, threat detection, and security intelligence & correlation. IT teams with limited budgets, staff and security expertise benefit from USM’s affordable purchase price, unified console that enables simplified deployment, and integrated threat intelligence that delivers maximum security visibility.
From a company perspective, 2015 was a momentous year for AlienVault. We achieved more than 55 percent year-over-year sales growth and increased our install base to over 3,000 commercial customers worldwide. We also closed a $52 million Series E funding round, raising our total funding to nearly $116 million.
AlienVault was named to Deloitte’s 2015 ‘Technology Fast 500’ list of the fastest-growing companies in North America, Forbes’ list of the hottest cybersecurity startups of 2015 and Cybersecurity 500’s list of companies to watch in 2015. With the expansion of our worldwide management team, the addition of 26 new Open Threat Exchange partners including HP and Intel, and accelerating global growth from our ecosystem of MSSP and channel partners, AlienVault is becoming a dominant player in the cybersecurity start-up space.
