In the past I’ve discussed IBM’s Qradar and its ability to provide a unified architecture for integrating security information and event management (SIEM) but I never addressed each module of the QRadar Platform individually to give you an idea of its seamless security coverage. With all the security threats in today’s connected world, businesses have to be prepared for everything and anything. We have to be prepared to detect threats BEFORE they occur, and this can only be done when you are able to view and analyze all of your data. Whether its network, application, database or user data, with Qradar you will be able to view each and every bit of it to ensure your environment remains safe.
So in this blog series, I will go over each portion of Qradar and exactly how each “piece” contributes to the overall security “pie”. This will include
-Security information and event management (SIEM)
– Incident Forensics
– Log Manager
– QFlow Collector
– Risk Manager
– V Flow Collector
– Vulnerability Manager
– Data Node and zSecure Adapters
At the end of this series you will be able to determine exactly what modules make sense for your specific environment and how Qradar can drastically improve your workflow, decrease overall cost of ownership, improve detection of threats, and of course remain easy to use.
