It is not unusual for cyber attackers to break into networks. They pretend to be employees in order to gain access to the network and erase all trace of their activities. It is difficult to filter through large amounts of data with limited time and resources to stop the attack. IBM QRadar, a Security Intelligence Platform product, provides a unified architecture to integrate security information and event management. It provides log management, anomaly detection and configuration, as well as vulnerability management. These products provide a unified architecture, advanced threat detection and greater ease-of-use, as well as lower total costs of ownership.
What is IBM QRadar?
IBM QRadar is a single architecture that analyzes logs, flows and vulnerabilities, users, assets, and users. It provides real-time correlation and behavioral abnormality detections to identify high risk threats. It can detect high-priority incidents among multiple data points. It gives you full visibility into your network, applications and user activity. It can also automate regulatory compliance by providing correlation, collection, and reporting capabilities. IBM QRadar is a security and event management tool that gathers data from both the organization and network devices. It is a SIEM product designed for enterprises to allow them to connect to operating systems, host assets and applications, as well as user activities and behaviors. IBM QRadar allows you to examine the network flows and log data in real-time. This allows you to identify and stop malignant activities in a short time. IBM QRadar ensures that the host organization is not damaged.
The IBM QRadar toolsThere is a lot of tools that can be used to aid in data processing under IBM QRadar. These are the most important:
IBM QRadar Vulnerability Management: This tool scans the process and collects network vulnerability data. This data can then be used to identify security risks within the network.
IBM QRadar Risk Management: This tool collects network infrastructure configuration and issues a draft network topology. You can use the data to simulate network situations and modify the configurations.
IBM QRadar Incident Forensics: This tool can be used to perform in-depth network forensics and replay full network sessions.
How does IBM QRadar work?
The IBM QRadar Security Intelligence Platform is designed to automatically recognize and investigate threats during the attack cycle’s initial phase. This will give you the time to respond quickly. It makes use of advanced analytics, machine learning, and parses logs and flow information across a variety of environments to detect any suspicious events in real time. It then matches them against threat intelligence and vulnerability data to create prioritized warnings according to severity and impact. IBM QRadar, which can uniquely combine all events against vulnerability data and threat intelligence, can help you to identify the root cause and extent. You can gain greater visibility into user behavior and network traffic with pre-packaged rules and over 500 integrations. All of this can be identified and managed from one platform.
Benefits of IBM QRadar
Here are some benefits of integrating IBM QRadars in your environment
QRadar provides comprehensive visibility. It assists in obtaining a unified vision into the data flows, events, and logs on the SaaS (software-as-a-service) and IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) ambiance and on-premises.
It eliminates the need for manual tasks, as all events that occur in a particular danger can be peripherally fetched.
