Behavioral Monitoring

AlienVault USM providers continuously monitor services by running certain systems to detect unexpected service outages. Clients will receive network behavior analyses through NetFlow analysis that provides high-level trends depending on what protocols are used, which hosts used the protocols, as well as the amount of bandwidth used. They will also obtain a full protocol analysis on network traffic that enables a full replay of the events that occurred during a potential breach.

Intrusion Detection

AlienVault USM providers supply built-in host intrusion, network intrusion detection, and cloud intrusion detection to their clients. Their clients will also receive automatic notifications via email and SMS to inform them of alarms that may lead to a system compromise or attack. Threats can be investigated and addressed faster with AlienVault’s Intrusion Detection feature, along with enabling users the ability to view attack methods, related events, as well as source and destination IP addresses.
