When a bad actor hits your servers, you and your security operations team need timely access to detailed information to identify the nature of the threat and, if need be, how to neutralize it. Without access to the right information, and the right tools, at the right time, this exercise might become a frustrating fire drill or it could be a well-oiled process that reassures your leadership and customers.
When combined with the right telemetry, the right security tools can enable the right outcomes. This starts with reducing the likelihood of an attack by initially choosing the most secure environment to run your critical applications on. By choosing F5 Distributed Cloud Services you are taking this first step. However, if that bad actor does show up then you need visibility to the relevant endpoints, systems, and operations that can reveal the right path to eliminating the threat.
This is why we’re excited to announce that F5 Distributed Cloud Services customers are now able to push their logs directly to IBM’s QRadar SIEM service. This integration is available today and if you are an existing customer of QRadar and F5 Distributed Cloud Services then downloading the F5 QRadar application takes only minutes to download and configure.
