AlienVault – Why Work For Us?

Become an Alien

Interesting in joining our Alien Nation? We’re a peace-loving bunch of extraterrestrials interested in nothing less than changing the world of security to be attainable to the mid-market and SMB. Join the mission!

Besides having the opportunity to work for an award-winning company offering an award-winning product, you’ll have a chance to work with some of brightest minds in the security industry. Our executives and security researchers are regularly quoted in the press, and we’ve been positioned a “Visionary” by Gartner in the SIEM Magic Quadrant for the last two years running (in fact, we were the only vendor in the visionary quadrant in 2013!).

We move at the speed of light at AlienVault, so if you enjoy a challenge—as well as a fun work environment—you may just need to put your space suit on and head to the stars with us.

 

AlienVault is the champion of mid-size organizations that lack sufficient staff, security expertise, technology or budget to defend against modern threats. Our Unified Security Management™ (USM) platform provides all of the essential security controls required for complete security visibility, and is designed to enable any IT or security practitioner to benefit from results on day one. Powered by the latest AlienVault Labs Threat Intelligence and the Open Threat Exchange™—the world’s largest crowd-sourced threat intelligence exchange—AlienVault USM delivers a unified, simple and affordable solution for threat detection and compliance management. AlienVault is a privately held company headquartered in Silicon Valley and backed by Trident Capital, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, GGV Capital, Intel Capital, Sigma West, Adara Venture Partners, Top Tier Capital and Correlation Ventures.

    I have been working at AlienVault full-time

    Pros

    The leadership team, direction of the company, culture and room for growth are all reasons I love working at AlienVault. It's hard to find solid companies to work for today, and AlienVault is known for being in the top of the security space, which you can see by the hard work every employee produces on a daily basis. The team values their work, its customers, partners and has a great work hard, play hard mentality.

    Cons

    Still in start-up mode in a few ways where communication across departments is lacking, but you can already see improvements by the management team to ensure everyone is on board with the direction of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue allowing each team player to have individual say in his or her role. The management team is open to everyone's opinions and ideas, which is a great policy and helps keep communication flowing and open at all times.
