IBM Security QRadar product overview

What is IBM Security QRadar?

IBM QRadar SIEM is a security information and event management platform for security analysts to accurately detect, prioritize, investigate and quickly respond to threats across cloud-based and on-premises environments. QRadar monitors the enterprise network using machine learning and AI algorithms, providing teams with intelligent insights which enable security analysts to formulate a response plan before attackers are able to damage systems, steal data, or disrupt business operations.

Key benefits of using IBM Security QRadar

  • Discover cyber attacks sooner in the attack cycle, view all relevant events in one place, and formulate an effective response plan to block and contain advanced attackers.

  • Detect activities such as anomalous access to data or suspicious movement of data which may indicate an attempt to corrupt or steal sensitive information.

  • QRadar enables security teams to detect, investigate and react to insider threats before attackers are able to damage systems, steal data, or disrupt business operations.

  • QRadar's network insights help users to analyze network traffic and locate critical data, monitor usage, and detect threats in real time.

  • Identify and group related events by correlating current and historical security information, and prioritize alerts to the most critical threats.

    Pros
    Support for collecting Logs from different devices is amazing. Storage capacity is excellent, logs can be easily stored for years.
    Also, the excellent support from OEM makes it a win-win proposition.
    IBM QRadar is very good solution to assure integrity of logs.
    Cons
    Very slow product built on older technology. Collecting logs from Windows is very painful and archaic.
    This is not the case where you can point-and-click a few things and have a system that alerts you properly when attacks are taking place.
    So, the correlation was difficult with IBM QRadar.

    A feasible solution for the detection of incidents, all our information is safe.

    Reviewed a year ago

    With IBM Security QRadar we reduce the risk of being vulnerable to a cyber attack, since the protection of this software is intuitive and prioritizes threats to be more effective in the security of our IT environment. It is a truly automatic process that guarantees the total protection of our data, has detailed reports and a very powerful response to cyber attacks.

    Pros

    It is a necessary software for all our business environment, since it guarantees that our information is safe, the dashboard is intuitive and understandable, the analyzes are effective so that threats do not enter and damage our information, I like the prioritization of threats, since neutralizes in order of importance, network forensics is very good, advanced searches are good, protection of our entire IT infrastructure is high, and we really like the trust that IBM Security QRadar places in us.

    Cons

    It has many features that somewhat limit the understanding of early adopters, it can be overwhelming the first time, but the quality of the results keeps our data safe and threats away.

    QRadar The Best SIEM Solution

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    The QRadar is the one of the best Security Information and event management (SIEM) tool. It collects the logs from company IT infrastructure at centralized locations and using correlation rules we can reduce the internal and external threat landscape. It makes special when we integrate different apps with like threat intel and other.

    Pros

    IBM QRadar has very simple user-friendly interface. The deployment and configuration of solution is very easy. The devices integration we can do easily with available Device Support Module

    Cons

    The integration get difficult when there is no available parser.

    QRadar Gets It Mostly Done At A Cost

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    I used QRadar for over 10 years, and have found great success in using it in a reactive sense when other staff bring up security or connectivity issues; the ability to quickly show normalized logs -- along with the raw log output for the skeptical staff out there -- is a real boon to quickly finding the root cause of an issue and moving on. The pricing and licensing schemes of the product have gotten more cumbersome since the purchase of the product by IBM, and their support channels exhibit the kind of mind-numbing bureaucracy you can expect out of such a large organization.

    Pros

    When aggregating log information, the ability to quickly click and pivot around between data sources and filter results on-the-fly worked very well for any reactive kind of events. The software also did a relatively decent job on identifying data and log sources and classifying them correctly.

    Cons

    The software can be very involved and cumbersome; expect to dedicate significant staff time towards it in order to keep it operational and to continually tune the software for false positives. For example, at an organization with over 2,000 employees I had to dedicate almost a single employee to perform tasks within QRadar, and nothing else. Along with that, in order to be successful your support staff must be extremely familiar with networking and understanding the reasons why devices send the logs that they do. This is not the case where you can point-and-click a few things and have a system that alerts you properly when attacks are taking place.

    The Best Classical SIEM solution in the market

    Reviewed 10 months ago

    It's very convenient in terms of usage and visibility. We are mainly dealing with the Audits and Qradar is the main factor that we've passed the Audits.

    Pros

    Easy to use. Learning curve is short. It's the same product compared to 10 years ago. It functions as it's expected. Expansion of the solution is easy. Reporting is inside the product and works well. Support is adequate.

    Cons

    There's no DataBroker or in short Kafka etc for filtering. AI and ML models is missing. Within the digital transformation and cloud migrations, it falls behind for the 3rd party integrations. I need to do the integration from the scratch for Saas or Paas services. Api integrations does not work well compared to similar solutions.

    Cons

    At this stage, we are liking all features about the product.
