CAMPBELL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AlienVault, LLC - the worldwide leader in Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions - today officially opened its global headquarters in Campbell, CA. This move brings the management and operation of the most-used SIEM solution into the heart of US and international technology business.
“By our plan, this was the time to come to the center of our industry,” said Julio Casal, co-founder and CEO of AlienVault, who conceived the idea for the technology in Madrid in 2003. “Directing the company from Spain worked very well in our early days, and we will maintain our multiple offices there and our tight connection with the Spanish community. With customers on every continent, however, the time had come to bring our primary operations to the world’s technology hub.”
Alberto Gomez of Adara Venture Partners, the lead investor in AlienVault, said the move aligns the company with its existing growth plans in the US market. “American analysts are already taking note of AlienVault’s growing leadership and agreeing with the team’s decision to increase the sales and marketing operations here in the US. Locating the executive team here takes that to the next level, allowing the organization to focus sharply on the US market.” Mr. Gomez, an expert in Open Source business models, notes, “Being the leading Open Source solution in Security Management has allowed AlienVault to quickly penetrate the US market and to establish an enormous install base here. Having operations managed from here in America will be key to capitalizing on that great momentum.”
Andrew Conry-Murray, Business Editor for Information Week and Network Computing, said the move makes sense. “U.S. companies struggle to manage security risks while also meeting a host of compliance mandates. SIEM technology can help. By basing its operations in Silicon Valley, AlienVault sends a clear signal of its commitment to the North American market.”
The company’s new offices are located in the Pruneyard complex in Campbell, California. The facility was selected for its central location in Silicon Valley and capacity to host the company’s continued growth and popular training programs.
AlienVault is the leading global provider of Security Information and Event Management solutions, providing the technology for more than half of all SIEM deployments worldwide. The creators of the original Open Source SIEM (OSSIM), the company provides the AlienVault Professional SIEM family of products through channels worldwide along with training and support services.
