THE BOTTOM LINE

Guidebook – IBM QRadar on Cloud

Companies are outsourcing cyber security infrastructure and expertise as budgetary pressures and talent acquisition limit the abilities of information technology (IT) departments to execute on their organizational needs. Nucleus found that the security information and event management (SIEM) capabilities of IBM QRadar on Cloud (QRoC) strikes the right balance of out-of-the-box capabilities and flexibility to customize as needed, helping customers realize value quickly yet maintaining agility as their security and business needs change. By switching from an on-premises configuration, customers were able to reduce their annual costs by up to 50 percent with QRoC. Customers also benefited by being able to extend and scale their threat monitoring and security intelligence that would otherwise have been impossible without increasing internal IT personnel.
