It's also scalable yes. You can adjust the number of devices it communicates with so there is no problem with scalability. View full review »

Program Manager at a tech services company
The solution is highly scalable. It is one of the reasons that we have chosen this product. Currently, our network has more than thirteen countries deployed. A roadmap is in place for a total of forty countries, so twenty-six more will be added. Deployment is a continuous exercise for us in terms of increasing the number of devices and applications. The EPS (Event Per second Licensing) is adjusted based on scale. At this time we have close to three or four hundred events per week. As we grow, we are expecting at least fifteen-hundred events per week. View full review »

Vulnerability Manager at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
I've seen no scalability issues in any of the environments where I am working at the moment. I've seen how it handles a lot of load. I'm talking about a 5,000-user environment. It can handle a lot of logs and events coming through simultaneously. If you spec it properly, with the proper hardware requirements, then it doesn’t crash. I've seen how people give it way less specs than it should have, then it does crash. But that was the fault on the users’ side, and not the fault of the product. View full review »

Security Engineer at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
In my experience the upgrade, it could lead to some misconfiguration. We had this experience of disruption when upgrading the 7.2.7 to 7.2.9 and then 7.3.0. We observed that some application and configuration needs to be redone. The scalability at this moment, because it's an older version, has some issues. Otherwise, I think the scalability is excellent. View full review »

IBM QRadar is easy to scale. We can integrate other devices if we want to. We could go to distributed architecture instead, but we like this product. 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. The security division just manages the login. Overall, only two to three staff are required for the management of IBM QRadar. They are more than enough to control the situation because most of it is easy. We definitely have plans to increase our current usage of the solution in the future. View full review »

Scalability is good. If you use APS 25 GPS license you can change to 3000 EPS anytime. Also, you can integrate a distributed solution with the all-in-one deployment. If you have a very small organization, you don't need model 5000 EPS license so you can deploy all-in-one and then one day if your organization grows bigger, you can deploy a distributed system.

QRadar is easily scalable in many ways: vertical and horizontal. * Horizontal: You can increase the QRadar processing power with QRadar App Node and Data Node. * Vertical: You can always implement multiple QRadars: Event collectors and flow, collectors, and then you can route your offenses, such events and flows from one QRadar to the next one.

It is a combination of multiple factors. The issues is from the customer side, not from QRadar. If you are able to get the right details from the customer, this solution is scalable. View full review »

The solution is very scalable; it's designed to be, it's distributed architecture. It's entirely scalable. Currently, there are five domain users working with this solution. We don't have visibility on our end user count due to the fact that end users don't need to log on to the application. Our maintenance needs require just one experienced QRadar analyst to moderate.

Trust Mapoka
Managing Director at CIA Botswana
Scalability is good. I have plans to increase usage it just depends on the contracts. If I get more contracts I get more people. Most clients want to manage security and so they would want to outsource their expertise. If they outsource their expertise that means I have to recruit more people. View full review »
