We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
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.On the back-end, Watson helps me figure out an exact problem, sometimes giving me the result.It saves a lot of time. We integrate the customer's firewall with all their networking devices.This console gives you the entire view, which makes life easier and allows you to take precautionary measures.

It has the ability to alert and track logs from different sources.The ability to browse logs from multiple sources at the same time really speeds up root cause analysis.

Cons
The 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.AI is superb but need improvements.The technical support is poor. Mostly because when I open a PMR for IBM, I am stuck with Level 1 staff. As an engineer, nothing that I am bringing them does not require Level 2 or Level 3 support.The user interface needs improvement.Do your research before implementing it, because it is tough to implement.

There are a few things I would like to do with a few more complex queries which I am not able to do right now, because it is a SaaS solution.Since I used the beta, improvements are to be expected. The dashboard options could have been clearer, but I believe it is more a problem with the limited documentation available at the time.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.IBM's Qradar is not for small companie. Unfortunately, it would be 'overkill' to place it plainly. The pricing would be too much.
