IBM QRadar SIEM

Identify events that matter most

IBM® QRadar® Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) helps security teams accurately detect and prioritize threats across the enterprise, and it provides intelligent insights that enable teams to respond quickly to reduce the impact of incidents. By consolidating log events and network flow data from thousands of devices, endpoints and applications distributed throughout your network, QRadar correlates all this different information and aggregates related events into single alerts to accelerates incident analysis and remediation.  QRadar SIEM is available on premises and in a cloud environment.

Comprehensive Visibility

Gain centralized insight into logs, flow and events across on-premises, SaaS and IaaS environments.

Eliminate manual tasks

Centrally see all events related to a particular threat in one place to eliminate manual tracking processes and enable analysts to focus on investigation and response.

Real-time threat detection

Leverage out-of-the-box analytics that automatically analyze logs and network flows to detect threats and generate prioritized alerts as attacks progress through the kill chain.

Easily manage compliance

Comply with internal organizational policies and external regulations by leveraging pre-built reports and templates.

Key Features

  • Ingest vast amounts of data from on-prem and cloud sources
  • Applies built-in analytics to accurately detect threats
  • Correlate related activities to prioritize incidents
  • Automatically parses and normalizes logs
  • Threat intelligence and support for STIX/TAXII
  • Integrates out-of-the-box with 450 solutions
  • Flexible architecture can be deployed on-prem or on cloud
  • Highly scalable, self-tuning and self-managing database

IBM QRadar Security Intelligence Solution

The formula of your company’s cyberattack resistance is a reliable information security platform coupled with comprehensive security services. IT Monteur, an IBM Business Partner, is happy to assist you with both. With more than 10 years of experience in information security, we leverage the intelligence of IBM QRadar Platform helping customers to resist possible security threats and data breaches.

IBM QRadar Platform

IBM QRadar is a consolidated security information solution providing real-time visibility of the entire IT infrastructure. We offer a full range of QRadar solutions with the core SIEM component and the following complimentary integrated modules: Risk Manager, Vulnerability Manager and Incident Forensics.

IBM QRadar Platform

IBM QRadar Platform

IBM QRadar SIEM

The core module of QRadar Security Intelligence Platform that allows obtaining accurate analytical data on security events in real time. The solution collects, processes and stores data from connected log sources to analyze it and generate offenses on the basis of correlation rules once a security threat is detected.

IBM QRadar Risk Manager

This separately installed appliance uses configurations of connected devices (firewalls, routers, switches, etc.) to identify security, policy, and compliance risks in your network. It helps security administrators to evaluate and prioritize network security risks.

IBM QRadar Vulnerability Manager

The module scans your network for vulnerabilities, as well as uses the data collected from other scanners (such as Nessus and Rapid7). Employing advanced analytics, the solution processes the vulnerability data to identify network security risks. Besides, IBM QRadar Vulnerability Manager stores the database of vulnerabilities that can further be used in correlation rules and reports by IBM QRadar SIEM.

IBM QRadar Incident Forensics

Use this module to retrace the step-by-step actions of a potential attacker and conduct an in-depth forensics investigation of malicious security incidents within hours or, even, minutes.

Pricing

The price of your QRadar solution depends on the number of EPS (Events Per Second), FPM (Flows Per Minute) and the number of managed hosts. We will be happy to provide you with a firm quote based on your network configuration.

Our IBM QRadar Services

IBM QRadar Security Intelligence Platform allows pro-active incidents detection and response activities. Yet, to get a full-fledged solution, you need to integrate and fine-tune it to fit your threat profile and information security policy. And that’s what we do for our customers across industries.

IBM QRadar consulting

ScienceSoft’s team offers full-cycle SIEM consulting services to align the platform’s capabilities with your IT infrastructure. To smoothly introduce QRadar to your company, we:

  • Estimate the needed modules and licenses for a system to prevent throttling of events and provide their time-efficient processing;
  • Carry out the assessment of your IT infrastructure to compile a clear network hierarchy;
  • Determine all possible challenges, including insider frauds and external threats, as well as define essential log sources.

IBM QRadar implementation

We provide QRadar software and perform all-round IBM QRadar implementation, including:

  • License estimation and delivery. We select and deliver the appropriate licenses based on the number of EPS and FPM in a system, as well as the requirements specific to your IT environment. For companies that already use QRadar but find their system continuously over license, we provide license updates;
  • Architecture design. We convert all the gathered SIEM requirements and create a technical design for QRadar deployment;
  • IBM QRadar deployment. We deploy the platform according to the designed architecture and IBM recommendations to ensure its maximum performance and scalability. After finishing the deployment, we apply the required licenses to start QRadar operation;
  • IBM QRadar configuration. We deliver a solution with the fully adjusted correlation rules and compliance reports, as well as a customized set of rules, to prevent false positives;
  • Custom DSMs. We develop and configure custom device support modules (Custom DSMs) to normalize and categorize events received from unsupported log sources to a standard taxonomy format, as well as develop log source enhancements for out-of-the-box log source types to ensure complete visibility of the entire IT environment.

Migration to IBM QRadar

We are always ready to share our experience and assist our customers in switching to QRadar from other security platforms. We will elaborate a detailed plan of migrating from your current functionality to QRadar and will help to eliminate possible gaps by refilling them with new correlation rules and custom log source extensions to make your security solution more effective.

IBM QRadar training

Our SIEM consultants organize a series of practice-oriented training sessions to share their knowledge in QRadar management with the customer’s security team. We offer two in-house QRadar training sessions on the customer’s site: Fundamentals and Advanced.

The Fundamentals training module includes the following highlights:

  • Introduction to IBM Security QRadar SIEM
  • Data Security
  • QRadar User Interface
  • Data Sources
  • Advanced Searching
  • Rules and Building Blocks (BB)
  • Advanced Reporting
  • Health Monitoring

The Advanced training module, targeted at more QRadar-savvy specialists, features the following topics:

  • Introduction to QRadar Administration Features and Functionality
  • Security Events Normalization
  • Building log source extensions (LSX) (normalization part)
  • Building LSX (mapping part)
  • Building Blocks Overview and Specifics. Enabling Custom BB
  • Rules Overview
  • Creating Rules
