Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management (formerly Dome9)

Dome9 can be used to have visibility into cloud assets and security policies across all the virtual networks, regions, and accounts on AWS, Azure and GCP. It also provides continuous enforcement of regulatory compliance standards and security best practices, with the ability to auto-remediate misconfigurations. So Dome9 is well suited for companies using cloud providers that want to take control of their resources.

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

Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management (formerly Dome9)

  • Advanced Threat protection via Check Point CloudGuard proven ThreatCloud intelligence feeds for malicious IP's is a nice feature.
  • We have not set up the cloud bots auto-remediation functionality yet, but from initial testing, it looks to be something worth utilizing.
  • Having reporting tie in's with our ServiceNow asset management platform is very handy.

  • 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

Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management (formerly Dome9)

  • Compared to another widely used competitor, this meets all our requirement as of today.
Anonymous | 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.

Checkpoint support is great. They provide great SLAs and they comply with service times accordingly.

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.

Alternatives Considered

We are also piloting Trend Micro Cloud App Security, but we don't have enough data to make a fair comparison, but from what I've seen, Check Point offers a much more comprehensive platform.

I previously used AlienVault OSSIM in my former job and I can really tell that QRadar is a much more powerful SIEM as compared to AlienVault OSSIM. In QRadar, you can perform advanced queries that make use of AQL. This makes my investigation a lot easier. One of the things I truly adore in QRadar is that you can perform queries to see all the events for an offense or multiple offenses. You can also see which of the events were seen on an offense in the Log activity view. I think the only thing I liked in AlienVault is their UI, QRadar may need to up its game on that but overall a really great SIEM solution.

Return on Investment

Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management (formerly Dome9)

  • Helps with early detection which is key for any monitoring tool.
  • Notification integration with most enterprise ticketing systems, thus prompt remediation.

  • ROI is a very tough calculation to achieve when it comes to cyber events. The reason is that how do you rate damage to the brand e.g. Target. Loss of confidence in a brand can easily lead to a company going bankrupt - how, do you measure that?
  • QRadar is in line with most other SIEM's in its category in TCO.
  • QRadar will lower the TCO and ROI of a security team's cost, due to the ability to perform most of the investigation and remediation recommendation.
