IBM QRadar®

Security Intelligence gives you insight into the most critical threats to your database security to successfully combat any security risk.

Identify security events that matter most

Networks have never been more complex than they are today, and protecting them from increasingly sophisticated threats is a continuous battle.

Businesses need to proactively monitor their systems to protect customer data, safeguard their intellectual property and avoid disruption to their day-to-day by effectively detecting possible threats and responding rapidly.

IBM QRadar® Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is a central hub that is designed to provide businesses with visibility into enterprise-wide data and actionable insights into high priority security threats.

QRadar applies near real-time, automated security intelligence to quickly and accurately detect and prioritise threats. These alerts will provide context into potential incidents and actionable insights into limiting the impact on your business.

IBM QRadar® Benefits

Provider near real-time visibility

…for threat detection and prioritisation, delivering surveillance throughout the entire IT infrastructure.


QRadar helps detect inappropriate use of applications, insider fraud and advanced slow and low threats. It collects logs and events from several resources including security devices, operating systems, applications, databases, and identity and access management products.

It also collects network flow data, including Layer 7 (application-layer) data, from switches and routers.

QRadar also 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 prioritises alerts

…to focus investigations on an actionable list of suspected incidents.


QRadar performs immediate event normalisation and correlation with other data for threat detection and compliance reporting and auditing. It reduces billions of events and flows into a handful of actionable offences and prioritises them according to their business impact.

QRadar performs activity baselining and anomaly detection to identify changes in behaviour associated with applications, hosts, users and areas of the network.

It 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

…while producing detailed data access and user activity reports.


QRadar tracks significant incidents and threats, providing links to all supporting data and context for easier investigation. It performs events and flow data searches in near real-time streaming mode or on a historical basis to enhance investigation.

It also 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.

QRadar 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, and performs federated searches throughout large, geographically distributed environments.

Supports easier, faster installation

…and includes time-saving tools and features.


QRadar 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.

It includes a centralised user interface that offers role-based access by function and a global view to access near real-time analysis, incident management and reporting.

Also QRadar groups network flow records occurring within a narrow time period as a single entry to help reduce storage consumption and conserve license requirements.

Ultimate reporting capabilities

…producing detailed data access and user activity reports to help manage compliance.


QRadar tracks all access to customer data by username and IP address to ensure enforcement of data-privacy policies.

It includes an intuitive reporting engine that does not require advanced database and report-writing skills.

It also provides the transparency, accountability and measurability to meet regulatory mandates and compliance reporting.
