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.

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.

There are always multiple bugs in the product. For example, the console page was hanging multiple times. Afterwards, they released multiple upgrades for the same, multiple patches from McAfee.It seems McAfee does test its product before releasing. When we - not only us, other companies also - deploy McAfee, we face multiple issues from the customer side, after which, McAfee reacts and fixes the bugs.There's no software support from McAfee.

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.

Hello. If you need any assistance through sizing and deployment of IBM QRadar, you should contact a local sales partner in your area. A partner should be able to size your specific needs, no matter little or big they are.

i have implemented the IBM QRadar, its the simplest to install and configure.
install, add log sources,create use cases as per your needs and QRadar will log all the events and network activity.
you can then perform forensics as well as vulnerability scans.
