How customers use it

  • Detect advanced threats


    APT actors are well-trained, well-funded and highly motivated - operating low and slow to gradually gain persistence without setting off any alarms.


    IBM QRadar detects well‐orchestrated, stealthy attacks as they are occurring and immediately set off the alarms. By correlating current and historical security information, QRadar identifies indicators of APTs that would otherwise go unnoticed.

  • Detect insider threats


    Insider threats account for 60 percent of cyber attacks, and they are incredibly difficult to detect.


    Using advanced analytics and machine learning algorithms, IBM QRadar can identify high-risk activities, prioritize the riskiest users, uncover compromised credentials and alert security teams to serious incidents.

  • Securing the cloud


    As cloud adoption grows, security teams often lack the baseline visibility needed to protect assets in these new environments.


    IBM QRadar extends visibility to cloud solutions and platforms by collecting, normalizing and analyzing events to detect threats through deep integrations with cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, SalesForce.com and Office 365.
