IT – The Heart Of Your Enterprise
QRadar For a Healthy, Secure IT
If the human body was the equivalent to your enterprise, IT would be the heart pumping blood to the entire system. If we were discussing healthcare, we would add positive habits for heart health and disease prevention. The IT equivalent of heart health care is security and QRadar is your healthy habit for threat and security breach prevention.
IBM QRadar is security intelligence based on a big data platform. It is designed from the ground up to deliver the benefits of next-generation Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) technology. This means it expands the visibility into your enterprises network, virtual, user and application activity to help provide actionable intelligence into potential security offenses.
Today’s reality is that organized teams pursue specific targets via well-orchestrated attacks. To combat these and other sophisticated threats, enterprises must adopt new approaches that help spot anomalies and subtle indicators of attack. Doing so requires collecting and analyzing data from the security infrastructure and beyond. In short, security is a big data problem.
An unprecedented challenge for business’ today is the tremendous amount of data that is created each day. While this data runs your enterprise, it also exposes it to more risks, such as data theft and service interruptions. These risks can expose the heart of your enterprise to threats that could cause catastrophic failure. The visibility that QRadar provides into your enterprise is a tremendous asset to quickly identify risks, prevent/limit exposures and prevent service interruptions. QRadar can be the difference between a healthy, secure organization and one that experiences a major security exposure.
When looking at heart health, you can take a preventative or reactive approach. You have the option to do what you can to take care of your heart or deal with problems after they arise, if you survive. Your enterprise’s heart is no different; you can take preventative security measures through QRadar to avoid or limit attacks or you can deal with the problems after they arise, if your enterprise survives. The question for you is: why do you want to be forced to react to a major security breach when you could have prevented or limited it?
