Quotes From Members Comparing IBM QRadar vs LogRhythm

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
Providing real-time visibility for threat detection and prioritization - QRadar SIEM provides contextual and actionable surveillance across the entire IT infrastructure.Network-Based Anomaly Detection (NBAD): Using NetFlow, JFlow, SFlow, or QFlow (all 7 layers), offenses are detected as a response when a rule is triggered.Improved our organization's TCO.The threat protection network is the most valuable feature, because when you get an offense, you can actually trace it back to where it originated from, how it originated, and why.The threat protection network is the most valuable feature, because when you get an offense, you can actually trace it back to where it originated from, how it originated, and why.The most valuable features are all the implementations, the plug-ins, and the User Behavior Analytics (UBA).The pre-canned rules and reports in this product are a huge plus.Search capabilities are sufficient for most tasks.

LogRhythm has shown to us, to this point in time, that it has the capabilities of being able to deliver actionable intelligence to the security engineers and analysts.The most valuable feature of LogRhythm for me is the ability to correlate logs throughout many different log sources.The ability for me to go into the Web UI, and just learn what's going on in my environment.It gives us insight into our entire installation, where we are multiple sites, going as far as the East Coast to the Central West Coast.Provides visibility into the network.It supports most standard log sources.As a healthcare company, what we use it for is compliance, then to protect our data from exaltation.The PCI compliance pieces that help us produce reports for our external auditor, and their support.

Cons
AI is superb but need improvements.Some UI enhancements would be nice, such as exporting custom event properties and the ability to export rules.GUI needs to be improved.I would like to see a more user-friendly product.Maybe there should be more custom rules in the exchange. Basically, we are using a lot of threat rules, so maybe they'll develop something like that.QVM is another instance where they need to revise the vulnerability scoring and the proper remediation details.Search capability and indexing still lag behind competitors. We also need to see improved rule based access controls and rule/event tuning.

Right now there is the concern about being able to gather all of the data into the system.I think they probably need to, because a lot of companies are having this cloud-first strategy, where anything that's new has to go into the cloud for some reason.I have probably submitted half a dozen log parser requests, and I keep finding more stuff that we need to keep an eye on that doesn't have a definition in LogRhythm.I would really love to be able to take some of the data and not have to export it to a CSV file, so I can pull it into Excel to turn it into some other kind of graph.I would probably look for more things to go into the web console that is currently on the fat client.It will definitely help if the parsing side would be much easier, meaning it would be better if we could easily make adjustments on the parser, both on standard and non-standard log sources.In the next release, I would certainly like to see more HIPAA compliance. I would also like to see more integration with Palo Alto Networks, particularly their Traps, which is their endpoint solution.I would really like to see some type of group or global management for RIM policies,

Pricing and Cost Advice
Go through a vulnerability assessment review for price breaks. A virtualized solution will also cut down on cost.IBM's Qradar is not for small companie. Unfortunately, it would be 'overkill' to place it plainly. The pricing would be too much.IBM's Qradar is not for small companie. Unfortunately, it would be 'overkill' to place it plainly. The pricing would be too much.Most of the time, it is easier and cheaper to buy a new product or the QRadar box.found other solutions, with more features at the same cost or less. You don’t have to leave the Gartner Magic Quadrant to beat their price.

I would recommend talking to the rep. That's the biggest thing because they will know what questions to ask.Look for whatever will give you the most value. That's the main point. It is not one size fits all.If you don't have your staff, absolutely look into the co-pilot and factor that into your cost evaluation.I would recommend that whatever sales quotes to them upfront, they will probably go up. Because they are probably going to outgrow that very quickly or once they start getting everything into it, they are going to have to move up anyway.Look closely at the cost of licensing of other products. This should include setups and the need for support services. I did a RFQ to 2 other vendors before choosing this product.
