IBM QRadar Valuable Features

DAX Paulino
Cybersecurity Practice Lead at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
One of the most valuable features is its ability to integrate with other solutions. In our current setup, we need a holistic view of our network to provide better service. Therefore, integration with our security tools and infrastructure is a must. We managed to get our NGFW, Endpoint Security, network servers, compliance tools and others to integrate with QRadar which enables our team to better understand what is happening in our network and respond accordingly.

First, the dashboard is a valuable feature. There is a single dashboard that gives us a complete overview of what is happening around the globe. We are able to follow the devices that are connected to the network. The second thing is the customization that we have done. For example, if there is an account login made in Tokyo then we will immediately get an alert. View full review »

They do have a way to pre-configure or have pre-configurations for companies that are starting and they don't know too much about SIEM or working with SIEMs. The solution uses SIEM to get the information to the managers so I will say that they have an ongoing boarding process that is very good if you are starting because it already has what you need to start up. In addition, they have more HIPAA. It's a pre-order on QRadar, so when we go to the process of selecting our use cases, they go by building blocks. QRadar links it to building blocks so we don't have too much to cut on it. View full review »

The first feature that I love to demonstrate for my customers is the fact that the vulnerability manager is integrated in QRadar SIEM. This lets us stop and detect vulnerability. The reports provide many methods to fix it. The circumvention method and the patch method is perfected very well in the QRadar area. The second valuable feature is when 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. The other fact I love about IBM is that we can integrate many other tiers solutions, such as Carbon Black and other plans. View full review »

QRadar has somewhat of a new structure recently from last gen. They have moved from the standard UI based infrastructure. There are multiple aspects coming in which are actually plugin and play kind of stuff, we don't have to write rules, we don't have to create dashboards and all. For example, on the dashboard we have user behavior analytics. And, it is very helpful for us to use customization and build from scratch. View full review »

The most valuable feature is user-behavior analytics, where it will create logs based on the users' behavior and report suspicious events or other anomalies. I am working with the data analytics so it is a very good one for what I am doing. View full review »

The securing of data is the most important feature because nowadays as cloud has come in, it is especially challenging to secure. We are actually planning for Palo Alto to be a better option because IBM needs better security for their cloud. View full review »

User at a healthcare company with 5,001-10,000 employees
This solution provides amazing visibility into the network and endpoints. The ability to correlate point in time and things happening over time is priceless in today's threat environment. The rules can look for things both from log sources and from data traversing your network which is unique in the SIEM world and makes QRadar a consistent magic quadrant leader. The QNI file hash in-flight search is helpful. The ability to transition from microscopic to macroscopic view, instantly, is very good. View full review »

Provided that the report is prebuilt and I can find what I am looking for, the reporting is the most valuable feature in this solution. The reports are very good and very presentable. View full review »

Senior Security Engineer at dig8labs
The most valuable feature is the DSM Editor. The custom parsing tool is very nice, outstanding. I have used McAfee's SIEM and LogRhythm as well, but because of this feature of QRadar, I don't think their solutions are good. Customizing it is very easy and it has a user-friendly interface.

Information Security Manager at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
The most valuable features are the diversity of logs type that enable us to monitors what is going on from different perspectives and reduces the likelihood that we will miss important attempts. There are different events and flows, and there is diversity from getting the information from different sources. We can also see that there are no false positives. It is well-tuned and the rules are covering everything that we need. View full review »

Providing real-time visibility for threat detection and prioritization - QRadar SIEM provides contextual and actionable surveillance across the entire IT infrastructure, helping organizations detect and remediate threats often missed by other security solutions. These threats can include inappropriate use of applications; insider fraud; and advanced, “low and slow” threats easily lost in the “noise” of millions of events.. View full review »
