Overall Satisfaction with IBM Security QRadar

This is our enterprise-wide solution for SIEM. We run this in our IT department and send many different application logs to the SIEM. We use the IBM QRadar tool as one of the applications we display on our 6x6 SOC. The application is fundamental to our security posture, we track log in failures, VPN connections, lateral movement and other key pieces of information that we deem important to cybersecurity.
  • Ingest logs from other application
  • Clean graphical displays of key security metrics
  • Filter data events
  • High end analytics
  • Correlation of data events across disparate applications
  • The tool needs a collaboration feature like an internal chat tool
  • Pricing model is very high
  • Pricing structure could be simplified
  • Enhancements could be faster
  • 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.
IBM QRadar is the best SIEM in class. We looked at Splunk, but you need a full time person to manage the tool. When we last looked at Splunk it had an enormous overhead cost associated with it.
