Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The ability to transition from microscopic to macroscopic view, instantly, is very good.Providing real-time visibility for threat detection and prioritization - QRadar SIEM provides contextual and actionable surveillance across the entire IT infrastructure.It is very stable. We have not faced interruptions in the past four and a half years.It has improved comprehensive visibility for what is going on in the perimeters, and on the inside, as well.This solution has allowed us to correlate logs from multiple sources.We get events and make the correlation, or rules. In IBM, we can implement our customer's rules. We can have very clear status threats and severity of antigens.Provided that the report is prebuilt and I can find what I am looking for, the reporting is the most valuable feature in this solution.This solution provides me with various alarms, and I have found security issues with some of my other products.

Cons
I would like to see a better GUI.AI is superb but need improvements.Technical support is good, but not great.We would like to see better instrumentation for debugging changes in the log flow.The interface is very old. IBM should remake it into a more modern interface.There are reports that I would like to generate that are either not included, or I cannot find.There is a lot of manual configuration required in order for the product to run smoothly, and I think that it could be made more automatic.It is very difficult to activate all of the network equipment, and it would help if it were made easier.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing needs to be such that they are more competitive with other vendors.There are additional costs, such as the cost associated with the different hardware required for implementation and deployment. Along with the add-on apps, these are all additional costs, and they require licensing as well.In terms of additional costs, it depends on the subscription that you choose. There are plenty of options to choose from.Our licensing costs for this solution is on a yearly basis.It's too expensive. The licensing is also a little bit difficult to understand because you have to license it per event and per number of flows.QRadar is quite expensive. It wouldn't be worth it for a small business...I would like for them to lower the price.The pricing is good.
