WASHINGTON & 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.”

AlienVault’s Unified Security Management platform is a collection of the best
open source tools for asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, threat
detection, behavioral monitoring and security intelligence. 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.”

This year there were 27 software categories, including twelve new and updated
categories that reflect the continued growth and evolution of cloud computing,
