As of Tuesday, November 6 2018, AlienVault USM and OSSIM v5.6.5 are now generally available for all existing and new customers. Users can update their system(s) through the console or web UI (see upgrade instructions for more information).
Please take a few minutes to carefully read these release notes before upgrading.
Feature releases will change the behavior of the system with new functionality. AlienVault encourages users to first apply the upgrade to a test system to understand and learn the new functionality before upgrading production systems. Carefully read the enhancement summary and change log below before upgrading your system.
