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.
