"For the third year in a row, Gartner has positioned AlienVault in the Visionaries quadrant and this year we are the only vendor included, which we believe is great validation of our unique approach to addressing today's advanced threats," said Barmak Meftah, AlienVault President and CEO. "We are on a mission to simplify the way security professionals detect and mitigate threats by unifying the technology and crowd-sourced threat intelligence into an easy-to-use, complete and affordable solution for companies of all sizes, especially the underserved midmarket."

AlienVault was also included again this year in Gartner's "Critical Capabilities for Security Information and Event Management" report, which is written to help SIEM buyers to define their requirements and select the appropriate technology. In the report, AlienVault was assessed for common use cases such as SIEM, threat management and compliance.
