AWS Elastic Beanstalk

AWS Elastic Beanstalk is well suited for [the] rapid development of applications that use standard compute platforms based on popular programming languages. So getting a Go, Python, Ruby, or Node.js app going in AWS Elastic Beanstalk will be easy. For non-standard applications, containers provide another option for using AWS Elastic Beanstalk. In either case, AWS Elastic Beanstalk is well suited for applications that are [self-contained]. AWS Elastic Beanstalk is also good for development or test environments that need a built-in deployment method.AWS Elastic Beanstalk is less appropriate for complex applications that rely on multiple AWS services. While deploying and running the base code might be easy to get going, it may be difficult to apply permissions and integrations with the other services.

If you have a small-to-large company looking for a SIEM solution that "does the job" and is easy to deploy/use, QRadar is your tool. If you're looking for a complex solution that supports integration with data-mining solutions (e.g. ELK), then you may need a different solution. Overall, QRadar fits the needs of 99% of the companies. It is one of the easiest SIEM solutions to deploy and use.

Pros

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

  • AWS Elastic Beanstalk was easy to implement, we only had to insert the application code to have it up and running in a few minutes. This helps us to launch company campaigns for different areas such as marketing, commercial and human resources.
  • It has a fast learning curve, since the training material of the platform is public on the manufacturer's portal, furthermore it is easy to interact and intuitive for developers.
  • The productivity of the equipment is optimized since they are not worrying about preparing the platform or infrastructure, they only have to attend to what is required by the application and its operation and this maintenance.
  • The indicators and metrics that it has, ensure that the application cannot be saturated and have a performance problem, with AWS Elastic Beanstalk the application can scale resources when needed automatically.

IBM QRadar

  • It allows us to have visibility to potential problems both on premise and in the cloud which was key as we have become a hybrid consumer.
  • It has automated monitoring which has allowed us to see threats faster and also allowed us to be proactive.
  • By having over 20,000 employees, QRadar has also allowed us to be aware of internal threats that are brought into the company by unsuspecting employees.

Cons

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

  • Limited to the frameworks and configurations that AWS supports. There is no native way to use Elastic Beanstalk to deploy a Go application behind Nginx, for example.
  • It's not always clear what's changed on an underlying system when AWS updates an EB stack; the new version is announced, but AWS does not say what specifically changed in the underlying configuration. This can have unintended consequences and result in additional work in order to figure out what changes were made.
Joshua Dickson | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM QRadar

  • There is a steep learning curve compared to other platforms. Qradar is incredibly powerful but does require some homework.
  • There is a glaring lack of threat feed utilization outside of STIXX/TAXII which remains very limited at this time.
  • May require a considerable amount of tuning during deployment with very little "out of the box" offense information.

As our technology grows, it makes more sense to individually provision each server rather than have it done via beanstalk. There are several reasons to do so, which I cannot explain without further diving into the architecture itself, but I can tell you this. With automation, you also loose the flexibility to morph the system for your specific needs. So if you expect that in future you need more customization to your deployment process, then there is a good chance that you might try to do things individually rather than use an automation like beanstalk.

It is a great tool to manage your applications. You just need to write the codes, and after that with one click, your app will be online and accessible from the internet. That is a huge help for people who do not know about infrastructure or do not want to spend money on maintaining infrastructure.

As I described earlier it has been really cost effective and really easy for fellow developers who don't want to waste weeks and weeks into learning and manually deploying stuff which basically takes month to create and go live with the Minimal viable product (MVP). With AWS Beanstalk within a week a developer can go live with the Minimal viable product easily.

I've had many issues with QRadar, and the support would hear and respond to my question all the time (more so than in the case of IBM Resilient support). They were very quick to respond, were helpful, and provided remote access.

- Do as many experiments as you can before you commit on using beanstalk or other AWS features.- Keep future state in mind. Think through what comes next, and if that is technically possible to do so.- Always factor in cost in terms of scaling.- We learned a valuable lesson when we wanted to go multi-region, because then we realized many things needs to change in code. So if you plan on using this a lot, factor multiple regions.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

AWS Elastic Beanstalk handles better in server autoscaling, load balancers,networking infrastructure for databases.It also helps in creating all of the architecture needed to run our apps and services.[AWS] Elastic Beanstalk also handles all of the provisioning, scaling, and implementation of the application stack unlike other competitors without a fuss.

IBM QRadar is a very complete tool that includes the Zero Trust Cyber Security model.This means QRadar can also integrate with many products on the market as well as handle a high level of analysis of the offenses with the use of Watson AI and XForce. It also provides a very structured vision to allow a greater view of each event that is generated by the tool

Return on Investment

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

  • Greatly reduced time in setting up and deploying test environments has saved a lot of hours and money.
  • Near-zero maintenance means that we don't spend any time tending to servers, the app containers just work.
  • The initial learning curve is a little steep to get services hosted in Elastic Beanstalk talking to external services like Redis, MongoDB, etc; but once one understands the pattern, development is a breeze.
  • The command line interface has enabled us to build many utility scripts that simplify our development workflow, thereby saving time.

IBM QRadar

  • Our organization has been able to expand its security portfolio based on the implementation of IBM QRadar.
  • We have successfully used the tool to identify when others are inspecting our network and put plans in place to address situations pre-emptively.
  • The annual cost is worth the pay, but I would like to see pricing model changes.
