IBM Security Solutions: What is QRadar?

As the world continues to turn more digital, the main subjects of cyber-attacks are no longer just machines. Rather, humans are the ones at greater risk for malicious activities, such as identity theft and fraud. According to Cybersecurity Ventures, cybercrime will rise to $6 trillion by 2021, which is up from $3 trillion in 2015. Protecting individuals, no matter the industry, is a top priority for many companies. Having a quality software that maintains security needs goes a long way to safeguard sensitive material. Enter IBM QRadar as the ultimate security solution. Let’s dive further into what is IBM’s QRadar SIEM.

Defining QRadar

QRadar is a security information and event management software (SIEM), that provides a complete overview of an organization’s security system to detect and report incidents head-on. Working alongside IBM X-Force, a cloud-based threat intelligence platform, QRadar works to collect, analyze network data and set priority alerts for even the most distributed environments to increase response time when dealing with emerging threats. An all-in-one advanced system that not only manages security through various network devices and architecture, but also provides secure options via the IBM cloud or on premises. In addition to the main system, QRadar can check for ransomware or other malicious activities in anti-virus logs, network traffic, HTTP logs, email logs, Windows logs and more. Storing and maintaining large data sets is essential, which is why QRadar SIEM is the main core to safeguarding networks, as it enhances network and data security, so no threat goes unnoticed and stored data remains guarded.

A Cohesive System

QRadar hosts a family of security solutions. In addition to QRadar SIEM, QRadar Risk Manager uses configurated devices, such as routers and firewalls, to identify network security, policy and risks and enables system administrators to review and prioritize them accordingly. QRadar Vulnerability Manager scans, processes and stores vulnerabilities from other scanners, such as Nessus and Rapid7, that can be used in accordance with correlation rules and reports by IBM QRadar SIEM. Lastly, QRadar Incident Forensics tracks the actions of attackers and investigates malicious activity within minutes or hours.

Security is ever-changing, with new threats are emerging daily. Protect both your data and organization’s well-being by tackling threats from within.
