Quotes From Members Comparing IBM QRadar vs. LogRhythm NextGen SIEM

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
QRadar has somewhat of a new structure recently from last gen. They have moved from the standard UI based infrastructure.It has improved my efficiency.A nice benefit is when we go to the process of selecting our youth cases, they go by building blocks. QRadar links it to building blocks.It's a state-of-the-art product for security information and event management (SIEM).There are a lot of great out-of-the-box features included.Log correlation is very useful for processing alerts. It serves to follow up alerts in real-time, building an entire workflow.Senses, tracks, and links significant incidents and threats.The tool is already automated in many ways, but there are some additional functions which should be automated, like sending an email, mobile notification, and integration of XFS.

The daily alerts allow me to quickly find security and operations issues which need to be addressed.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.

Cons
The Indian tech support is not helpful.It is not app based.The initial setup was complex, and it took six months.QRadar needs a lot of fine tuningThe quality of technical support depends on the IBM support person. Sometimes, it's hard to get the right person on the other side. A ticket coordinator could be the key to better quality delivery.The released patch quality is poor. IBM should test those patches on their side, not on the client's side.Its architecture is very complicated.The architecture could be improved. I got stuck for a long time trying to understand the architecture, as it is quite challenging.

More detail in the alerts given to avoid additional searches, as often the source or destination associated with the alert is not evidenced.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It is very expensive.A good approach would be to begin with an On Cloud subscription, then later on do a more exact sizing.Pricing and licensing are competitive. Their new licensing options allow logs to bypass the correlation engine for a flat rate, which is also appealing for log data that is compliance-driven for a small amount of money.Pricing (based on EPS) will be more accurate.An X-Force feed is free with QRadar.It is expensive. It is not a product that I can provide for SMBs. It is a program that I can only provide for really large enterprises.The maintenance costs are high.Go through a vulnerability assessment review for price breaks. A virtualized solution will also cut down on cost.

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.
