Overall Satisfaction with IBM QRadar

IBM QRadar is a frontrunner solution in security information and event management (SIEM) that helps my team to automate threat detection and threat remediation. It reduces false positives detected in the threat log, which helps reduce the manual workload for my team. We can prioritize threat management based on scoring shared by IBM QRadar. Further, the solution offers integration with various third-party tools that help get access to additional capabilities needed for security-specific projects.

  • Automation of threat detection
  • Reduction in manual workloads by scoring and prioritizing threats
  • Reduction of false positives in security report
  • Integration with third-party tools
  • Access to customer service
  • Varied learning resources and active use community
  • User experience
  • Providing more insights on threats
  • Reduced pricing
  • It is easier to collaborate with peers using IBM QRadar
  • IBM QRadar is one of the most robust tools and hardly suffers from any glitches
  • Pricing is decent if we consider overall functionalities and its well-engineered capabilities
  • It is worth the investment in this tool and it is easier to get funds from leadership for additional seats
Both solutions are similar in functionality and reputation; however, our team was able to get a better combination of security tools from IBM that would have provided us with end-to-end capabilities for our security requirements. Additionally, our existing team already had experience working with IBM QRadar, so we wanted to avoid the learning curve in using a new tool like Splunk. Also, product resources and integration with IBM QRadar provide added benefits.
