IBM QRadar Other Solutions Considered

DAX Paulino
Cybersecurity Practice Lead at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
We did evaluate some, like LogRhythm. We found that LogRhythm was more difficult to understand because it was a little bit too static. I believe they have already improved but, as of the moment, we are still happy with QRadar. View full review »

Yes, for each project we discuss which product to choose, and decide depending on what suits our needs. SolarWinds is one of the solutions that we use for our NOC operations. We had internal discussions and considered many parameters, but later we decided to move to IBM. View full review »
Vulnerability Manager at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
I wasn't completely part of the whole process when they chose a product. I know they evaluated AlienVault, which unfortunately I do not have any experience with. I'm not able to provide pointers as to why the company chose IBM QRadar. I believe it's because we are a partner with them. View full review »

QRadar needs a lot of fine tuning. I had to schedule meetings with IBM for help. For example, one of the things that we were having difficulties with QRadar is that the detection rules are sent by IBM and we wanted those detection rules. In one case, I know there's new malware out there, BlackIce, but I am not able in QRadar, because it's a managed service, to go in and create a detection rule that say the malware is out.

We compared it to Splunk. The only difference between QRadar and Splunk is that Splunk works on the data analytics, This makes it easy to help create those data lakes and searches whereas QRadar does not focus on that. The SQL database on the back end, takes some time and it's not so flexible in data storage or data lake creation, so that is the only backfall of QRadar. Additionally, Splunk is app based, and QRadar is not app based. View full review »

I am familiar with products from other vendors, such as McAfee. We specifically evaluated Splunk, which is a good solution but there is no local partner in Turkey for support. Having a local partner is very important to us. We chose this solution because we have a good relationship with IBM, and they are able to provide us with local support. View full review »

Director of Market Enabling Solutions at Raksha Technologies Pvt Ltd
I select the vendor based on the customer's requirements. On the customer side, pricing is very important. They also consider the support to be an important factor. My present organization does mostly IBM business. We have a very good rapport with the IBM team. We have won a lot of cases against competitors. We get trained frequently, so if there is an update, then we are prepared. We are able to see the rapid growth of IBM through QRadar compared to the other SIEM tools. View full review »
Chief Technology Officer at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
I have used several other products including ArcSight, AlienVault, and Splunk. Some of these solutions are on-premises or in-house. I do not like Splunk, but I think that ArcSight is a good solution. ArcSight is complicated, but it is a more mature solution with much greater options than IBM is offering in QRadar. View full review »

Cybersecurity Engineer Consultant at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
I had the chance to test some other products, and there is a lot of them on the market. However, when you have to deploy and manage it, not just demo it, it is a total different story. QRadar is not perfect, but I have had the chance to manage ArcSight, Sumo Logic, Unomaly, and RSA for some specific features, and comparatively, QRadar is good View full review »
