Flexible, easy to learn, and price fairly

What is our primary use case?

Depending on the organization's needs the solution can monitor different types of security through logs.

What is most valuable?

I have found the most important features to be the flexibility, tech framework, and disk manager. Additionally, the solution is easy to learn how to use it.

What needs improvement?

There could be better integration with the solution.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for approximately three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Every solution has some bugs and other issues but for the most part, this solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. The amount of users is dependant on what your needs are. You can have many users having access to the solution. For example, out of a 5,000 person network, you could have five with access to it for security. 

How are customer service and technical support?

The solution has great support. Whenever we had an issue they were able to give us support within 15 minutes.

How was the initial setup?

The installation was easy but this can depend on what appliances you want to install it on. If it is VMware, then the installation is easy, it took me 30 minutes.

What about the implementation team?

We did use a consultant to do the deployment and we only needed one technician.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is priced fairly, there is a license for the solution, and we pay annually.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend the solution to others and we plan to continue using it in the future.

I rate IBM QRadar a nine out of ten.
