Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is IBM QRadar? How does it differ from other security systems?

IBM QRadar is a security information and event management (SIEM) solution that proactively filters through massive amounts of data to detect and contain attacks. Unlike traditional cyber defenses, it automatically identifies and prioritises threats earlier in the attack cycle, giving you the time you need to respond effectively.

For example, Sogeti Luxembourg (US) reduced its threat investigation and root cause determination from three hours to just three minutes using IBM QRadar Advisor with Watson.

What's the difference between a SIEM solution and security analytics?

Security analytics is the overarching term for IT products and services that gather and analyse security events to understand which pose the greatest risk. SIEM solutions like IBM QRadar are security analytics that log security data, generate reports and provide real-time analysis of security alerts produced by applications and network hardware.

How does IBM QRadar work?

IBM QRadar analyses log and flow data across multiple environments to detect suspicious events as they occur. It then cross-matches them against known threats and vulnerabilities, sends alerts prioritised by impact and severity, and can investigate to determine the root cause and scope of the attack.

What sort of organisations benefit from IBM QRadar?

Medium to large enterprises that need core SIEM functionality and want a unified platform that can manage a wide range of security monitoring and operational technologies can benefit from using IBM QRadar.

What advantages does IBM QRadar have over its competitors?

IBM QRadar is the recognised SIEM leader in the market. It can accurately detect both known and unknown threats that other SIEMs miss, because it has the broadest scope of analytics purpose-built for security use-cases.

IBM QRadar has been designated a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM for nine consecutive years, and was ranked #1 in advanced threat detection and forensics and incident response capabilities in 2017. It was also ranked #1 in the most recent Forrester Wave for Security Analytics.

How does IBM QRadar integrate with my current systems?

It really depends on what you are trying to achieve from a business and technical perspective and what your environment comprises of (i.e data centre / cloud / managed). Get in touch with the IBM Sales Team to discuss your situation and we will be able to advise you from there.
