One of the most valuable features is its ability to integrate with other solutions. IBM has a lot of solutions and we have managed to make it work with IBM BigFix and MaaS360, and even Microsoft.

The most valuable feature is the QRadar Vulnerability Manager which provides vulnerability scans. In addition, I like the way QRadar generates alerts.

IBM QRadar has improved my organization by introducing many functions. It collects logs from all of our systems in the organization and has functioned very well. It alerts and correlates the aggregate events or offenses we receive through all the applications we use.

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.

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.

IBM QRadar is easy to scale, it doesn't affect the environment. In our office, we have around 40 - 50 users, but our clients have more users on their networks. Our organization has staff in the software department that manages IBM QRadar for us.

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.

IBM has everything you need in a cybersecurity solution. If you want to build a cybersecurity operation center version then I think QRadar is a perfect solution.

In terms of additional features, a mobile app would be nice. Also, the reporting is definitely okay, but you have to make sure that everybody with different roles can understand it. There is room for improvement in the reporting.

Ideally we would like a mobile version so that any alert that comes in will notify us in a mobile app, or by using SMS integration.

It would be good if the program allowed certain profiles to only see certain customer information.

There is one problem with QRadar in regards to the add-on apps. The apps can be frustrating. For example, when I add a big app like one of the add-ons for resiliency, add-on applications for QRadar, these applications require different hardware to implement and to deploy. The resiliency connector because there's a considerable amount of data scanning, operates for these apps correctly.

The initial setup was complex, and it took six months.
QRadar needs a lot of fine tuning

The interface is very old. IBM should remake it into a more modern interface.

The quoting and the dashboard session could be improved. It should be more user-friendly.

The Indian tech support is not helpful.
It is not app based.

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.

I think QRadar is very complex. It's a distributed system and IBM QRadar has an all-in-one solution which is not like that distributed solution but it's a good product. IBM needs to consider the user interface because if we compare it with AlienVault, the AlienVault user interface is fantastic but the IBM QRadar user interface is very complex. They should focus on how to make it easier for the client.
