Feature spotlights

Ingest vast amounts of data from on-prem and cloud sources

Provides insights into on-premises and cloud-based resources and applies business context to that data to maximize relevant threat and risk insights.

Applies built-in analytics to accurately detect threats

Analyzes network, endpoint, asset, user, vulnerability and threat data to accurately detect known and unknown threats that others miss. Built-in analytics help shorten time-to-value without requiring data science experts.

Correlate related activities to prioritize incidents

Uniquely identifies and tracks related activities throughout the kill chain so analysts can have end-to-end visibility into a potential incident from a single screen.

Automatically parses and normalizes logs

Automatically makes sense of data from disparate sources and provides a easy-to-use editor to quickly on-board custom log sources for analysis.

Threat intelligence and support for STIX/TAXII

Includes threat intelligence from IBM X-Force and enables customers to integrate additional threat intelligence feeds of their choice via STIX/TAXII.

Integrates out-of-the-box with 450 solutions

Fosters an ecosystem by providing over 450 out-of-the-box integrations, APIs and an SDK to help customers ingest data faster, gain deeper insights and extend the value of existing solutions.

Flexible architecture can be deployed on-prem or on cloud

Offers multiple deployment options to meet a variety of needs. The solution can be delivered as hardware, software or virtual machines for on-premises or IaaS environments. Start with an all-in-one solution or scale up to a highly distributed model across multiple network segments and geographies.

Highly scalable, self-tuning and self-managing database

Enables customers to focus on security operations instead of system management and helps reduce the total cost of ownership. A self-tuning and self-managing database can scale to support the largest organizations without requiring dedicated database admins.
