5 Ways Companies Transformed Their Security with IBM QRadar

As businesses expand further into the digital world, cutting-edge security intelligence is more important than ever. By protecting infrastructure with IBM QRadar, companies are identifying and responding to threats fast, boosting staff efficiency with automation and cutting out security breaches. Let’s look at some interesting ways companies have used QRadar to transform their security posture:

1) Wimbledon uses Watson to achieve a breach-free tournament:

In 2017, QRadar helped Wimbledon achieve zero breaches to their site and brand—despite there being 200 million security events during the tournament. Watson-powered threat investigations were 60x faster than manual investigations, and 5x more security incidents were investigated during the tournament.

2) The University of New Brunswick deploys a digital immune system:

The university built a digital immune system, with QRadar at the core, that thwarted threats to their network and data. Now they are identifying and responding to security attacks in near-real-time and automating SIEM to save thousands of staff hours each month. 


3) The US Open delivers great digital experiences protected by QRadar:

By using QRadar, the US Tennis Association (USTA) gained a single view of security events to protect the US Open. With rapid identification and response to malicious attacks, the US Open is well-equipped to defend their data and infrastructure.


4) Sogeti Luxembourg cuts SOC response times from days to minutes:

With QRadar and Watson, Sogeti SOC teams analyze information 50 percent faster, and they prioritize and respond to threats in minutes versus hours or days.


5) MyEyeDr. transforms data governance and anomaly detection:

glassesTo protect patient data, a US optometry company, MyEyeDr., needed to analyze log data and get more visibility to who was accessing what resources on their systems. Replacing their manual processes, they deployed several IBM solutions, including QRadar, to gain insight, intelligence and control across their growing environment. They identified hidden anomalies to stop attacks before they happen, reduced anomaly identification from weeks to seconds and accelerated HIPAA and PCI compliance reporting.
