Product Overview

IBM® QRadar® Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) helps security teams accurately detect and prioritize threats across the enterprise, and it provides intelligent insights that enable teams to respond quickly to reduce the impact of incidents. By consolidating log events and network flow data from thousands of devices, endpoints and applications distributed throughout your network, QRadar correlates all this different information and aggregates related events into single alerts to accelerate incident analysis and remediation. QRadar SIEM is available on premises and in a cloud environment.

Challenges Overcome Through Integration

The QRadar Security Intelligence platform provides real-time monitoring and correlation of the vast amount of security events and network traffic in your enterprise. Augmenting these events and alerts with external security intelligence from Recorded Future delivers more context to improve analyst efficiency and confidence. Using the joint integration, analysts can reduce time spent understanding “why” an IOC is bad, and more time mitigating risk in their environment.

The integration between QRadar and Recorded Future allows security responders to

  • Detect and gain context on QRadar offenses with real-time external intelligence to reduce time to verdict
  • Proactively block threats before they impact the business using Recorded Future reference sets in correlation rules
  • Hunt for threats using on-demand enrichment


Integration Description

Recorded Future’s integration for QRadar gives analysts the ability to correlate and enrich alerts in their SIEM with real-time security intelligence. Security teams can see Recorded Future’s external threat data layered on top of QRadar offenses to reduce time spent researching related IOCs (indicators of compromise). Easy pivots back to Recorded Future are enabled via a right-click action. Correlation rules can be configured to detect malicious behavior based on Recorded Future’s reference sets.

Additionally, analysts can use the Recorded Future tab to perform on-demand enrichment lookups on IPs, Domains, Hashes, and Vulnerabilities.
