CAMPBELL, Calif.--()--AlienVault, the producer of the technology deployed by more than half of all SIEM users worldwide, and Emerging Threats Pro, the producers of the fastest moving and most diverse Suricata and Snort Rulesets and firewall rules, today announced an OEM agreement that will include Emerging Threats Pro technology in AlienVault Unified SIEM.

"This agreement brings the completed commercial solution to the critical government and large enterprise customers and mid-sized businesses that AlienVault serves in a manner that will dramatically increase the effectiveness of their security infrastructures."
AlienVault's CTO and co-founder, Dominique Karg, says that the integration of ET Pro changes the game for other SIEM vendors. "We already include far more of the technologies critical for security management and operations than any other SIEM vendor. Including the powerful rulesets of ET Pro with AlienVault Unified SIEM creates a platform which is yet another generation ahead of old-fashioned SIEM-only solutions."
