Correlation rule capabilities are very good. Maybe that is not best but its ROI is best. In addition, it is IBM and in my region, Qradar is one of the best SIEM solutions with good quality local and global support.

Cyberark
The system is great for enterprise or larger IT departments or teams where temporary or full access may be given using privileged IDs. Requirements for needing local admin access is also eliminated which can help with specific Windows workstation related tasks. It can be very useful when working with remote teams or contractors who may need temporary access to a system when required.

monitoring network traffic is much easier while having siem in your organization and the scenario where siem is less apricated is installing adding logs source making rules according to your desire or the last thing ibm support team not proving the good feedback on instant basis in case of any critical scenarios

Pros
Cyberark
  • Automatically discover new servers on the network and take control of the local admin password by vaulting it and ensuring nobody knows the password. A different password on every server.
  • Automatically roll the password in a configurable manner - after each use, after a certain period of time, etc.
  • Track and govern sensitive account usage by ensuring only properly authorized users can access the vault and obtain the credentials and then monitor usage.

Cons
Cyberark
  • GUI - right now everything is on one page/dashboard. Some level of folder/Safe type view would be great
  • More options when storing passwords - especially for network based passwords
  • Better integrations with vendors like Cisco so that admins dont need to really get the password from the vault (think Last Pass type add on)

  • Need to spend more time configuring the system to properly interpret and normalize different type of data collected from multiple resources.
  • While Rule creation QRadar uses that rules to detect security threats and generate alerts, but to creating and managing rules is bit complex & tedious work to complete.
  • IBM Security QRadar SIEM is excellent in handling large & complex systems that requires in-depth knowledge and extensive training to configure and maintain the system which includes upgrading, optimization of performance & issue troubleshooting.

It is known as one of the safest products in the market. It has good support and is also available as on-premise. You can run it virtually on VMWare (and probably on other hypervisors as well). You can have a second instance on bare metal and that makes it a very safe system.

IBM Qradar takes the best from its competitors. Reliable and stable but sometimes very expensive, the SIEM from IBM offers a wide range of scenarios in which the customers can suite and size their own infrastructures. IBM Qradar doesn't really needs to stack up againt its competitors because it already sets an example in the SIEM world.
