Different ways or solutions to fully test AlienVault Appliance implementation/functioning

Most likely not the right category, so please advise.
I know the recommended way to test functionality, through running a spoofed Nmap scan on my environment. But does anyone know of any other ways to fully test that the solution has been implemented? I want to make sure I will be getting alarms for malicious activity and attempted hacking before it is too late. I appreciate the insight, thanks.

    adonijah.moreland,

    While you can review configuration to make sure you are hitting your markers, what you are really asking for here is a penetration test.

    The only way to get a real gauge on any security service or appliance, beyond reviewing the configuration is to attempt infiltration.
