SEI delivers actionable intelligence for anactive offense and stronger defense.
Information security is a boardroom priority, but many organizations still depend upon dozens of point products for moment-in-time insights. Highly trained personnel are using search engines to comb through mountains of data, but more and more often, attackers evade detection by switching IPs, protocols, ports and applications to latch on, expand and gather valuable data after a successful breach.
SEI QRadar is different. It deploys rapidly regardless of a network’s scale and begins delivering results in mere hours. Its cognitive-like capabilities and stored intelligence can associate related attacks emanating from the same source or corresponding to the same targeted data. QRadar delivers these actionable insights to meet both current and future needs—from advanced threat detection to insider threat monitoring, fraud detection, risk and vulnerability management, forensics investigations, and compliance reporting.
Key reasons why security leaders choose QRadar include:
Gain the power to act—at scale
Using the greater QRadar platform, security teams can clearly understand both what has happened and what’s at stake if they don’t act—quickly. Key capabilities such as threat monitoring, risk and vulnerability management, and compliance reporting are typically a click away, and can pass relevant data to each other. Plus, QRadar includes tight integration with X-Force threat intelligence for hourly updates on global attack techniques and malware strains.
In the event of a breach, QRadar integrated forensics technology provides SOC analysts with packet data for an associated offense, detailing the step-by-step actions of intruders with exact clarity. Defeating some threats simply requires blocking communications with an external IP address, but others require the mobilization of emergency response teams to isolate and reconfigure hosts, disable malware and patch vulnerabilities. But what if your team doesn’t know exactly what to do? It’s time to ask for help, collaborate with peers, seek a solution or even hire a professional services team.
The QRadar open framework—as well as the Security App Exchange—helps facilitate tighter integrations with SEI and third-party solutions. For example, one of the apps on the site passes QRadar offense data to Resilient Systems’ Incident Response Platform for immediate action. Another app provides a similar data sharing capability with the Carbon Black Enterprise Response endpoint management solution.
Deploy one platform with global visibility
Today’s security environments are full of complexity—often, security data is distributed across multiple offerings
from different vendors, all with different interfaces and data storage formats. To effectively detect existing and emerging threats, security teams need a consolidated view of this data, combined with comprehensive threat detection analytics and response capabilities. QRadar uses a single, federated database for all security data that is specifically designed for scalable collection from on-premises and cloud systems, storage, reporting and very fast investigation search performance. In addition, QRadar is optimized for real-time and historical incident analysis, detecting incidents in a matter of seconds after they occur—not hours, days or weeks.
QRadar also provides a highly integrated set of security use cases, with additional ones available via the Security App Exchange. Security teams can use a single, dashboard-based console for all functions, including real-time security monitoring; proactive risk and vulnerability management; and incident detection, forensics and remediation. This one hub for security operations and response fuses intelligence from SEI and third-party products—backed by a consistent user interface and workflow—making your security operations team far more effective.
