    Switching to Blumira: An Affordable AlienVault Alternative


    If your security monitoring solution is creating more problems than it’s solving, then it’s time to reconsider your current vendor.

    A cumbersome, complex security monitoring solution can use up your IT and security team’s valuable time, money and resources that’s better spent on more valuable tasks. When you combine that with an unhelpful or unresponsive customer support team, it can truly be a recipe for disaster.

    Join Blumira customer Christopher Ross, CISO at Clover Health and Nato Riley, Integrations Engineer at Blumira, as they go through tips on finding alternatives to your failing security monitoring project, based on real experiences with vendors. They’ll cover:

    • How to determine that a vendor is no longer working for you 
    • How to evaluate a security monitoring platform’s features based on your company’s current requirements and challenges
    • How Blumira differs from its competitors and addresses the common challenges of less modern SIEM vendors
    • Best practices to perform a rip-and-replace with your security monitoring product
