Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

I don't know exactly, but I know it is based on the number of logs and the retention duration, such as 30 days or something like that. So, the smallest package is about 500 a month for 30 days of logs. There is a virtual machine. You need resources for it. It is a log collecting VM. They provide the software, and you just have to load a virtual machine. So, you're going to incur some CPU RAM and storage for wherever this log collecting appliance is running, which typically is in our cloud and on our platform for the customer.

The price for this solution is very good, but since the features do not work the price is expensive.

Its price is much lower than McAfee ESM.

The price of this solution is reasonable, which is one of the reasons why we selected it over other solutions.

It's competitive with other similar solutions; however, I don't do the billing so I can't properly comment on it.

In comparison to the competition, it's a very inexpensive option, whether you use the cloud or the on-premises deployment models. You also get great value for money as you do get a lot of very good tools that come standard with the solution as well.

The solution has a subscription-based annual payment option. It's not a perpetual license.

Our take on it is that we are paying more for this product because of the AT&T name. We don't necessarily find that we are getting more functionality or quality, given the price point. The licensing fees are dependent on usage.

I'd push them for pricing. I sense the best time to negotiate with them is in June as the fiscal year ends.

I advise others on the pricing and licensing. I research to find the best pricing for the value of the products as well as register all licensing.

The pricing is the best on the market.

It is I think for the market very straightforward, super easy to deploy. Licensing is straightforward in comparison to others.

It is easy to deploy and install an entire solution. I don't have an idea about pricing.

Cost is very competitive and if your log ingestion is not huge, then you can get a SIEM for a small budget; AlienVault listen well to customers and work with you on the needs of your business.

It's very reasonably priced. It was one of the lowest among the ones I looked at. Licensing is pretty flexible. They can do a two-year or a three-year, even a one-year, perhaps.

As stated before, I believe this is the best SIEM solution for its value, especially for SMB.

The pricing is a good value and makes sense. The key thing is that for the new product, the licensing of it is subscription-based and it's based on data. Clients need to be really careful when thinking about that, because odds are they're going to need to put a lot more data into it than what they initially estimate, which is going to drive their subscription costs up. I do have concerns that if a payment is delayed or if there is any dispute about billing, that all of our data is held in the cloud and could be lost.

So far, it has been a good solution for a tight budget.

I don't think the product's pricing is a good value because they try to raise the price 50 percent every year. If they do that again I won't be a customer, going forward. Their sales team is way too aggressive. The price they advertise is not always the price you get. In terms of licensing, AlienVault needs to understand that not all customers are huge enterprises. They don't seem to understand that.

So far, I feel the product's pricing is a good value. The technology is decent. You get what you pay for. I think it's fair.

The vulnerability management solution is worse than buying a Nessus Professional license.

Use an MSSP instead. It is much cheaper.
