IBM QRadar Overview
IBM® Security QRadar® SIEM consolidates log source event data from thousands of devices endpoints and applications distributed throughout a network. It performs immediate normalization and correlation activities 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 can also correlate system vulnerabilities with event and network data, helping to prioritize security incidents.
IBM Security QRadar SIEM:
- Provides near real-time visibility for threat detection and prioritization, delivering surveillance throughout the entire IT infrastructure.
- Reduces and prioritizes alerts to focus investigations on an actionable list of suspected incidents.
- Enables more effective threat management while producing detailed data access and user activity reports.
- Supports easier, faster installation and includes time-saving tools and features.
- Produces detailed data access and user activity reports to help manage compliance.
Normalizes and correlates raw security data to identify offenses that require investigation and helps distinguish real threats from false positives.
Monitors network topology, switch, router, firewall and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) configurations to reduce risks, increase compliance and simulate attacks.
Moves you to a flexible SIEM solution where the infrastructure is deployed and maintained in the Cloud by IBM security professionals.
Discovers security vulnerabilities, adds context and supports the prioritization of remediation and mitigation activities.
Allows you to retrace the actions of a potential attacker and quickly and easily conduct a forensic investigation.
Collects, analyzes, archives and stores large volumes of network and security event logs for compliance, and reporting.
IBM Security QRadar SIEM Overview
Provides near real-time visibility
- Helps detect inappropriate use of applications, insider fraud, and advanced low and slow 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, including Layer 7 (application-layer) data, from switches and routers.
- Obtains information from identity and access management products and infrastructure services such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP); and receives vulnerability information from network and application vulnerability scanners.
Reduces and prioritizes alerts
- Performs immediate event normalization and correlation with other data for threat detection and compliance reporting and auditing.
- Reduces billions of events and flows into a handful of actionable offenses and prioritizes them according to their business impact.
- Performs 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.
Enables more effective threat management
- Tracks significant incidents and threats, providing links to all supporting data and context for easier investigation.
- Performs events and flow data searches in near real-time streaming mode or on a historical basis to enhance investigation.
- Enables the addition of IBM Security QRadar QFlow and IBM Security QRadar VFlow Collector appliances for 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.
Supports easier, faster installation
- Automatically discovers most log source devices and monitors network traffic to find and classify hosts and servers—tracking the applications, protocols, services and ports they use—for significant time savings.
- Includes a centralized user interface that offers role-based access by function and a global view to access near real-time analysis, incident management and reporting.
- Groups network flow records occurring within a narrow time period as a single entry to help reduce storage consumption and conserve license requirements.
Produces 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.
- Provides the transparency, accountability and measurability to meet regulatory mandates and compliance reporting.
