Security operations is getting more complex and inefficient with too many tools, too much data and simply too much to do. According to a study done by IBM, SOC team members are only able to handle half of the alerts that they should be reviewing in a typical workday. This potentially leads to missing the important alerts that are critical to an organization’s security. Thus, choosing the right SIEM solution can be transformative for security teams, helping them manage alerts and scale the SOC more effectively.

This is why we are excited to share Gartner has recognized IBM as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for SIEM for the 14th consecutive time. This follows on the heels of IBM being recognized as a leader in the Kuppinger Cole Leadership Compass for Intelligent SIEM platforms.

Not all SIEM are created equal

Gartner recognizes that SIEM has evolved from a pure-play detection solution to a comprehensive threat management platform. Specifically, Gartner writes, “SIEM has evolved into a security platform with multiple features and deployment models to provide a security system of record with comprehensive threat detection, investigation and response capabilities.” The key point to highlight here is that threat detection, investigation and response capabilities are built into a single solution. This is exactly what IBM has evolved QRadar SIEM to be over the years.

IBM Security QRadar SIEM is part of the QRadar Suite, which provides SOAR, EDR and Log Insights on a single console for faster threat detection and response, designed to help security teams outsmart threats.

IBM QRadar SIEM, named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM, is built to maximize the power of today’s security teams. It is designed to augment and up-level security analysts’ daily work, tapping AI to manage time-consuming and repetitive tasks while empowering security analysts to find and respond to high priority security incidents more effectively.

IBM QRadar SIEM has two editions: Cloud-Native SIEM and Classic SIEM. Choose Cloud-Native SIEM for a cloud-native architecture built for hybrid scale and speed; choose Classic SIEM if most of your workloads are on premises and you need a solution to complement your on-premises infrastructure.

QRadar SIEM: Built with the analyst in mind

QRadar SIEM has been built with the analyst in mind. It is much more than a tool—it is a teammate for stretched security teams that help them be more effective at their job. We believe these key product capabilities have helped us attain this prestigious accolade from Gartner.

  • Enterprise grade AI: Enterprise grade AI forms the foundation of QRadar SIEM. These AI models have been pre-trained on millions of alerts. QRadar SIEM applies multiple layers of AI and automation to drastically improve the quality of alerts and the efficiency of security analysts. Leveraging mature AI capabilities pre-trained on millions of alerts from IBM’s vast network of clients, QRadar Cloud-Native SIEM provides context and prioritization to threats allowing analysts to focus on complex and high value work. QRadar SIEM provides automated threat investigation and response quicker with trusted recommendations.
  • Unified analyst experience: QRadar SIEM offers customers access to a wide set of integrated capabilities that allow for more proactive detection, investigation and response across toolsets. QRadar SIEM’s intuitive, unified user interface eliminates the need for the analyst to search individually across disparate tools and presents the findings in a unified console. To easily visualize results, QRadar SIEM delivers them in easy-to-understand visual Attack graph with MITRE ATT&CK mappings.
  • Open: Built on Red Hat OpenShift, QRadar SIEM is open at its core, allowing for deeper interoperability with multi-vendor tools and clouds. It leverages open source and open standards for core functions including detection rules and search language, allowing it to easily work across companies’ broader security and technology stacks. It helps stay ahead of zero-day threats as new SIGMA community rules are updated to SIEM within minutes.

QRadar SIEM can help organizations address key use cases like advanced threat detection, threat hunting, compliance management and more. Take a look at this interactive demo and explore the different use cases you can solve with QRadar SIEM.
