IBM QRadar Review

A reliable and scalable solution for network behavior and log analytics


What is our primary use case?

We use the solution for network behavior and log analytics. We wish to procure one for behavior analytics.

I am not certain which version we are using. 

There is a need for a behavior analytics solution in the environment. We use the solution to highlight unusual traffic for a single particular link or even single particular user traffic. 

What is most valuable?

The solution will not provide alerts in the event of any particular traffic. It will only alert in the case of a security threat. 

What needs improvement?

I am looking for a solution to replace IBM QRadar. We use it for incident reporting, but I need one for behavior analytics. I need one which will send alerts in the event of any behavior. 

The solution is fine for analyzing logs. We already have basic modules. We require more modules for getting so that we may obtain further details. We essentially use IBM QRadar for analyzing particular logs. 

There are no additional features which should be added or upgraded in the next release. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is reliable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is fine. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is okay. We have had no issues with them. 

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

The license is not subscription-based. We have been doing the same deployment for more than ten years. 

The pricing is alright. 

What other advice do I have?


Our environment is binding. We have only monitoring and data central traffic.

I would recommend the solution to others. It is fine for analyzing logs. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
