IBM QRadar Review

Flexible correlation, easy to use, and stable

What is our primary use case?

We have a POC environment but have not onboard it to any of our clients.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the correlation function, which is flexible.

It is a bit easier to use than other products, such as Splunk or ELK Elasticsearch.

What needs improvement?

The technical support can be improved a little bit, and the price could be cheaper.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using IMB QRadar for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

IBM QRadar is a stable solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support needs improvement.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I know a little bit about Splunk and ELK Elasticsearch. We did not have a PoC with Splunk so it was just theoretical, but I did learn about it.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very easy.

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

IBM QRadar is a little bit expensive compared to other products.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others who are looking for an on-premises solution. For a SIEM solution, it is the best one to go with. If they are interested in using the cloud, I would not recommend it. The cloud version of QRadar is QRoC and it is a bit complicated.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
