Washington, D.C. and San Mateo, Calif. (March 25, 2013) AlienVault, the leading Unified Security Management provider committed to making security visibility complete, simple and affordable, today announced that its AlienVault Unified Security Management™ (USM) platform was named a finalist for the 2013 SIIA Software CODiE Awards for Best Security Solution. The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier award for the software and information industries, and have been recognizing product excellence for 27 years. The awards have over 75 categories and are organized by industry focus of Content, Education and Software.
"We’re delighted to be selected as a CODiE finalist in the Best Security Solution category, particularly given such remarkable competition,” said Barmak Meftah, President and CEO of AlienVault. “AlienVault has worked hard to bring to market a complete, simple and affordable solution that provides essential security capabilities to companies of all sizes, and that all too often lack the resources to protect against today’s advanced threats.”

These essential security capabilities are preconfigured and tuned to provide complete security visibility and threat management through an easy-to-use management console. AlienVault’s USM is the only all-in-one solution that also provides access to two threat intelligence services: the Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX), a community-sourced exchange with up-to-the minute threat information submitted by thousands of security professionals worldwide; and AlienVault Labs Threat Intelligence, a rules database constructed and tested by the company’s research team headed up by renowned security expert Jaime Blasco.
“The CODiE Awards competition was extremely competitive this year, and all of the finalists should be commended for their innovative products and services,” said Rhianna Collier, VP for the Software Division at SIIA. “We look forward to honoring the winners at our awards program in May at All About the Cloud.”
