Active Defence Essentials Deployment Options

IBM QRadar on AWS

IBM QRadar for AWS is an all-in-one appliance, deployed in AWS and utilises the Australian data centres for computer and storage.

The QRadar Console Image in AWS enables us to easily deploy a QRadar Console to act as either an All in One appliance or a Console in a distributed deployment.

QRadar provides a unique approach to security analytics by chaining together related events to provide security teams with a single alert on each potential incident. This advanced correlation helps to reduce alert fatigue, streamline attack detection, and enable security analysts to respond to critical incidents faster.

All in One Appliance – a stand-alone appliance capable of all QRadar functionality. This includes dashboards, receiving event and flow data, processing the data to create assets, offenses, reports, vulnerability data, and using apps from the IBM X-Force Exchange. The data on an All in One Console is stored locally.

Vectra also offers a pure vendor hosted and managed platform delivered from IBM’s data centres. IBM QRadar-on-Cloud (IBM QROC) makes it easier for you to access your security information no matter where you are.

Microsoft Sentinel

Microsoft Sentinel from Microsoft is a cloud-native SIEM system that a security operations team can use to:

  • Get security insights across the enterprise by collecting data from virtually any source.
  • Detect and investigate threats quickly by using built-in machine learning and Microsoft threat intelligence.
  • Automate threat responses by using playbooks and by integrating Azure Logic Apps.

Unlike with traditional SIEM solutions, to run Sentinel, you don’t need to install any servers either on-premises or in the cloud. Sentinel is a service that you deploy in Azure. You can get up and running with Sentinel in just a few minutes in the Azure portal.

Sumo Logic

Sumo Logic’s Cloud SIEM solution provides security analysts with enhanced visibility to seamlessly monitor their on-prem, hybrid, and multi-cloud infrastructures and thoroughly understand the impact and context of an attack. In addition to supporting a wide spectrum of security use cases, including audit & compliance, Sumo Logic fused analytics and SOC automation to perform security analyst workflows and automatically triage alerts—increasing human efficiencies and enabling analysts to focus on higher-value security functions.

Speed up incident investigations by automatically triaging alerts and correlating threats across your on-prem, cloud, multi-cloud & hybrid cloud sources.

A cloud SIEM solution should be a long-term investment, so it’s important to consider the upfront and ongoing costs as part of your selection decision. Sumo Logic provides a cost-effective licensing model that fits your budget.
