Security Intelligence, Security Operations Solutions

IBM® Security QRadar® SIEM gather log source event data from thousands of devices endpoints and applications that can be found in your network. The IBM QRadar® normalizes and correlates activities instantly on raw data to distinguish real threats from false positives. As an option, this software incorporates IBM Security X-Force® Threat Intelligence which supplies a list of potentially malicious IP addresses including malware hosts, spam sources and other threats. IBM Security QRadar SIEM also correlate system vulnerabilities with event and network data, helping the SIEM user to know the priority of each security incidents.

 

 Features

 

  • Near real-time visibility for threat detection and prioritization, delivering surveillance throughout the entire IT infrastructure.
  • Effectiveness of its threat management while producing detailed data access and user activity reports.
  • Powerful filtration tool to Reduce and prioritize alerts to focus investigations on an actionable list of suspected incidents.
  • Capability of delivering detailed Reports about data access and user activity to help manage compliance.
  • Ease of installation and includes time-saving tools and features.

 

IBM Security QRadar SIEM Overview

 

Near real-time visibility

  • Helps detect the malicious use of applications, insider fraud, and advanced threats that are slow and considered as low threats that can be lost among millions of events.
  • Collects logs and events from several resources including security devices, operating systems, applications, databases, and identity and access management products.
  • Collects network flow data, up to Layer 7 data, from switches and routers.
  • Obtains information from identity and access management products and infrastructure services such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP); and learn vulnerability information from network and application vulnerability scanners results.

 

Reduces, extract and prioritizes alerts

  • Instant Normalization and correlation with other data to detect threats, for compliance reporting and auditing.
  • Extract from billions of events and flows all required information to make a handful actionable offenses then prioritizes them according to their security and business impact.
  • Activity baselining and anomaly detection to identify changes in behavior associated with applications, hosts, users and areas of the network.
  • Uses IBM Security X-Force Threat Intelligence optionally to identify activity associated with suspicious IP addresses, such as those suspected of hosting malware.

 

Threat management with effectiveness

  • Tracks significant incidents and threats, providing links to all supporting data and context for easier investigation.
  • Ability to search and filter events and flow data in near real-time streaming mode and in a historical basis to enhance investigation.
  • Ability to add the IBM Security QRadar QFlow and IBM Security QRadar VFlow Collector appliances to get a deep insight and visibility into applications (such as enterprise resource management), databases, collaboration products and social media through Layer 7 network flow collection.
  • Helps detect off-hours or unusual use of an application or cloud-based service, or network activity patterns that are inconsistent with historical usage patterns.
  • Performs federated searches throughout large, geographically distributed environments.

 

Ease of installation

  • Automatic discover of most log source devices and monitors network traffic to find and classify hosts and servers—tracking the applications, protocols, services and ports.
  • Powerful centralized user interface that offers role-based access by function and a global view to access near real-time analysis, incident management and reporting.
  • Collects and groups network flow records occurring within a narrow time period as a single entry to help reduce storage consumption and conserve license requirements.

 

Generates fully detailed data access and user activity reports

  • Tracks all access to customer data by username and IP address to ensure enforcement of data-privacy policies.
  • Includes an intuitive reporting engine that does not require advanced database and report-writing skills.
  • Meets the regulatory mandates and compliance reporting in transparency, accountability and measurability.

 

QRadar SIEM : Key Benefits

 

Visibility and Total intelligence:

First-generation SIEM technology was designed to monitor traditional security telemetry and reduce the data collected to a subset of suspected security incidents through rules and data correlation. This traditional approach to a SIEM system delivers visibility into servers, hosts and security systems but lacks the ability to collect from all possible sources or efficiently distinguish between true threats and false alarms.

 

  • As the only SIEM solution designed from the ground up to deliver the benefits of next-generation SIEM technology, QRadar SIEM dramatically expands visibility into network activity, virtual activity, user activity and application activity, giving network security professionals unprecedented intelligence into potential offense sources across their entire network.
  • QRadar correlates log data from the security and network infrastructure in the context of network activity in order to detect incidents that other products miss and to accurately prioritize incidents.
  • Total intelligence also includes being able to provide a full impact analysis before, during and after an attack. First generation SIEM technologies provide value when the attack is going on but they are limited in their ability to profile attackers and targets in advance of an incident for better prioritization and response. They are also extremely limited in their ability to provide full forensics in the wake of a detected incident.

 

QRadar's Next-Generation SIEM provides value before, during and after an attack because it incorporates behavior and context. This means better security profiling, advanced detection and complete forensics.

 

The integrated platform that delivers one-console security and unmatached scalability:

First-generation SIEM solutions rely on bringing multiple products together and attempt to deploy them in as a single SIEM solution. The result is a segmented solution that is unnecessarily complex, difficult to manage and even harder to scale. More importantly, filtered and selective data correlation, log duplication, multiple UI's and non-unified reporting and searching limit your ability to truly protect your network.

 

  • QRadar's Next-Generation SIEM was designed from the ground up to work as complete integrated solution. Unlike other offerings on the market that require the integration of multiple, distinct products and interfaces, QRadar provides a solution that, no matter what the scale requirement, offers a common platform and UI for all security intelligence tasks from searching and filtering, to reporting and response and eliminates the false choice between intelligence or simplicity that you are forced to make with first generation SIEMs.

 

Automation that allows you to better monitor, analyze and act:

 

Without automation you are dependent on your vendor to expend a large amount of time and effort simply configuring your solution for operation. This is even before they consider optimizing your solution in operation. Unlike first-generation SIEM solutions, QRadar's Next-Generation SIEM automates processes for customers from the discovery of log sources, to profiling applications and assets. Valuable out of the box content in the form of rules and building blocks is delivered with minimal customization required.

 

This content is also auto-updated on a weekly basis including content from third party intelligence sources. Thousands of out-of-the-box reports relevant to your specific roles, devices compliance regulations and vertical industry are also included. With QRadar SIEM, organizations are now better able to monitor, analyze and act with the most powerful auto-deployment, auto-prioritization, auto-reporting and efficient SIEM available.

 

  • Auto-discovery of log source
  • Auto-discovery of applications
  • Auto-discovery of assets
  • Auto-grouping of assets
  • Centralized log management
  • Auto-tuning
  • Automated Config Audits
  • Auto-detect threats
