Pros
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.It is really helpful to us from the compliance point of view.The initial setup is not complex or difficult.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.

Cons
AI is superb but need improvements.Technical support is good, but not great.The tech support is not that good.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost of this product is expensive.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.
