lightweight SIEM tool for complete security operations

OSSIM platform cover-up security operations for SMB customers with all the features available in leading SIEM solutions. It had as many correlation rules that were most sufficient to correlate with leading vendors to make analyst jobs easy. simple deployment and user-friendly architecture make complex things too easy with OSSIM except the fact that build with freeware tools and depends patches on it.

Pros

OSSIM SIEM platform is very unique compared to other leading SIEM platforms. As part of security operations adding assets, correlation rules on logs, and performing Vulnerability Assessments, etc.. are simple and more effective because of their simple architecture it was easy to work around and create workflows.

Cons

OSSIM lacks when it comes to normalizing raw logs into SIEM events. It lacks in new emerging device logs as there needs to be a plugin. It is built on most of the freeware tools so it was always a challenge for enterprise customers.

Reasons for Choosing AlienVault OSSIM

financial not feasible and complex architecture deployment takes min 3-6 months to complete SOC and to understand things.

Reasons for Switching to AlienVault OSSIM
