Security analytics and security operations center (SOC) managers who have
continuous access to a breadth of data throughout an operation is a key
indicator of an organization’s good security posture. The IBM BigFix App
Team prides itself in helping security analysts and SOC managers meet that
goal with the release of the IBM BigFix App for QRadar v1.0.0in May 2017,
providing them continuous visibility and insights into their endpoint
security status from a single panel on the QRadar Console.

IBM BigFix App for QRadar fully integrates QRadar and BigFix to retrieve a
variety of endpoint security data such as vulnerabilities discovered,
patches to be applied, anti-virus deployment status, and software
installation and processes running status. The deep and wide-scoped
endpoint security data enables QRadar security analysts to increase their
awareness on endpoint status and perform incident investigation more
effectively. It also delivers to SOC managers a comprehensive endpoint
security posture across the organization to help identify critical areas
that need attention.

With IBM Security’s continued dedication to combat advanced cybersecurity
threats, the IBM BigFix team is releasing IBM BigFix App for QRadar v1.5.0
to provide more security threat data, enhanced data visualization, and
usability improvement.
