By 2020, 83 percent of enterprise workloads will be in cloud

As cloud adoption only grows, organizations need to extend security to cloud-based data and workloads. Yet, security teams often lack the baseline visibility needed to protect assets in these new environments. Without this visibility, you may be unable to take the critical first steps to protect cloud assets, minimize risks, defend against threats and prevent misconfigurations in cloud environments.

Extend enterprise security to cloud-based environments

To provide analysts with a comprehensive view of risks and threats, IBM® QRadar® extends visibility to cloud solutions and platforms by collecting, normalizing and analyzing events to help detect threats. Deep integration with cloud services such as Amazon Web Service (AWS), Azure, and Office 365, as well as with traditional on-premises infrastructure helps security teams better detect and respond to threats regardless of where they occur.

The solution also helps detect misconfigurations, such as those common in AWS S3 Buckets, that could unintentionally expose data. It can also provide insight into the use of shadow IT and expose which users use unsanctioned tools.

IBM QRadar DSM for Amazon GuardDuty

Amazon GuardDuty is a cloud-native security monitoring service that can help to identify unexpected and potentially malicious activity in your AWS environment. QRadar's integration with GuardDuty accelerates threat detection and correlation of security events to better protect enterprise data in the cloud.

How does the integration work between AWS and QRadar?

  • CloudTrail records API calls made on your AWS account and delivers log files to S3 buckets where QRadar can retrieve the information and provide you the visibility and accuracy you need.
  • CloudWatch provides real-time monitoring of resources and applications, and events can be sent to QRadar so you can collect and track AWS metrics alongside the rest of your enterprise security data.
  • GuardDuty is a threat detection service that continuously monitors for malicious or unauthorized behavior to help you protect your AWS accounts and workloads.

Watch QRadar and AWS tutorial to see how this integration can help your team to detect misconfigurations in AWS environments and bring cloud data into their enterprisewide security analytics program.
