QLEAN FOR  qrADAR  HEALTH CHECK

 

WHAT IS IT?

The most advanced QRadar health check and LEAN SOC automation solution to proactively improve SIEM performance and maintenance

WHAT FOR?

  • to avoid complex and costly maintenance (frees up about 250 hours or $ 25,000 a year per average deployment)
  • to prevent inferior data quality
  • to sustain reliable performance
  • to investigate security threats & top offenses

KEY FEATURES

QLean (aka Health Check Framework for QRadar) provides security administrators with 37 performance and behavioral metrics, as well as includes 25 Health Markers for quick assessment of the solution’s functioning. The tool ensures a comprehensive view of an organization’s SIEM system by letting security specialists detect operational deviations along with data losses, and helping to troubleshoot them promptly. 

Analyze with Health Check Report

Analyze with Health Check Report

QLean users get access to a comprehensive health check report that includes 37 performance and behavioral metrics. The Report offers an extended description of identified problems, hence helps security administrators to choose possible actions to recover the system’s operability.

Each report generated by QLean contains a detailed analysis with the following performance indicators:

  • Console summary of the system’s state (e.g., the number of active log sources and assets, storage and memory available, top 10 unique offences)
  • EPS and FPI statistics
  • Events and flows timelines
  • Disk, CPU and memory usage on managed hosts
  • Log sources statistics
  • Incoming log data quality
  • Correlation rules and reports performance and more

Diagnose with Health Markers

Diagnose with Health Markers

The Markers draw an accurate portrait of the system, stressing such important aspects as:

  • Critical modification to log sources
  • Presence of uncategorized or unknown events
  • Mistakes in correlation rules
  • Excessive time of correlation rule execution
  • Slow response of correlation rules
  • Detected auto-update errors

THE BENEFITS YOU GET

  • Automation of QRadar maintenance routine
  • Holistic overview of the system performance and roadmap for tuning
  • Prompt issue diagnostics together with relevant recommendations to overhaul them
  • License efficiency and savings
  • QRadar operational transparency for analysts and managers
  • KPI on host uptime and availability
  • Increase of Log Sources Data quality per USD spent
  • Highly optimized and top performing QRadar system

GET THE MOST VALUE FROM YOUR QRADAR DEPLOYMENT

Our 13-year SIEM consulting experience showed that poor performance, low data quality along with complex and costly maintenance are the major factors that prevent companies from getting the most value from their QRadar deployments. It means that even with a SIEM solution in place, organizations often overlook critical security events occurring within their networks and still make considerable investments to support the system’s operability.

QLean  was created to keep security administrators alerted to the system’s configuration and performance issues, and let businesses overcome the most frequent drawbacks hindering their SIEM effectiveness.

Faultless performance

Faultless performance

QLean provides the system’s all-round profile by revealing pain spots that should be fine-tuned or reconfigured to ensure a higher level of protection:

  • EPS and FPM Timelines reflect the amount of events and flows processed within the system over a certain period of time, thus alerting security specialists when the enabled licenses don’t match the real number of data coming to the system.
  • Events and Rules reveal average and peak EPS per log types within a specified timeframe, as well as show how fast correlation rules are executed, their response time, the number of responses per correlation rule, etc. Therefore, security administrators can optimize badly configured or incorrect rules consuming too much resources.
  • Offense Analysis helps to identify correlation rules generating the abnormal number of false-positives, thus requiring to be fine-tuned.
  • Heavy Reports depict the reports that take the longest time to be generated, which points to the errors that are to be eliminated.

Homogeneous data

Homogeneous data

QLean helps to improve the quality of data collected from numerous log sources. This allows to minimize risks of missing important log data and overlooking critical security offenses due to log source misconfiguration. Via dedicated performance metrics, QLean for IBM QRadar SIEM informs security administrators about:

  • data generated by unknown/unsupported log sources
  • misconfigured log sources that show inadequate coverage of security events
  • maliciously misconfigured log sources
  • disabled log sources that don’t generate any security events, and more

Simplified maintenance

Simplified maintenance

Advanced operational analytics of the tool enables CISOs to stick to a proactive information security strategy and eliminates the necessity to create custom scripts and additional reporting tools. This allows security specialists to enhance QRadar’s performance with less time, effort and budget required to maintain the platform.

The tool enables quick and timely improvements of the QRadar deployment by in-house security specialists, which allows companies to maintain excellent network protection.
