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.

HPE ArcSight has a quite steep learning curve.Administration of ArcSight is not an easy job. The admin needs to be well experienced in it to identify the root cause and fix it.They need to develop NetFlow appliances that can be installed in the customer network on span ports, collect NetFlow, and send it to ArcSight without relying on the devices' NetFlow capability and their position in the network.

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.

Aggregation can help a lot in pushing down licensing costs.ArcSight is pretty expensive compared with its competitors. I believe that is fine as it provides value.HPE ArcSight pricing might be more expensive than other SIEM solutions, but in my opinion it has powerful features and great flexibility in developing complex use cases.
