Supercharge Your Security with QRadar SIEM & ExtraHop

The combined power of real-time insights from wire data, and historical data from logs, is a linchpin for any successful security team. Power up your QRadar Enterprise Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) with streaming wire data analytics by ExtraHop.

Splunk And Wire Data

Gain Maximum Confidence in Your Enterprise SIEM with a Scalable Wire Data Solution

Leading SIEM vendors like IBM QRadar recommend SECOPS teams use wire data to augment log data sources and increase their overall visibility into their most critical assets. Wire data can't be compromised making it invaluable for detecting and responding to threats in your environment, even if logs have been tampered with.

For large enterprises or those growing rapidly, capturing and effectively using logs can become a nearly insurmountable challenge. Using real-time insights from wire data to prioritize what threats to investigate, focusing on the most critical assets, can make the challenge manageable again while still enabling log data to be used forensically.

If you want to prioritize critical assets, gain complete visibility, and maximize your capability to detect, investigate, and remediate the worst threats, combining wire data from ExtraHop and logs from QRadar SIEM is a great place to start.

Use Cases

Compliance Reporting

Use ExtraHop to supply QRadar with information not available from log sources, thereby generating more complete, comprehensive, and actionable compliance reports.

Shadow IT

Use ExtraHop to capture data from unreported public SaaS or on-prem applications and forward to QRadar for analysis.

Incident Response & Forensics

Forward a minimum required subset of data to QRadar for analysis while preserving complete records on ExtraHop for incident response and forensics if needed.

Real-Time Response

Use ExtraHop triggers to instantly take action (e.g. quarantining malware infected devices via a workflow orchestration platform) where a response can't afford to be delayed by QRadar index and search operations.

SIEM Optimization

Optimize QRadar license and resource utilization by using ExtraHop to filter out low quality data in real time before it is sent to QRadar.

How It Works

The ExtraHop appliance requires no agents and integrates with QRadar SIEM out of the box. Built for speed and scale, ExtraHop passively analyzes every packet that flows across your enterprise at a sustained 100 Gbps, decrypting, reassembling, filtering, and extracting actionable insights before streaming that information to QRadar. Extensive support for the most commonly used enterprise applications and protocols gives you maximum visibility and choice over what wire data you can send to QRadar.

How Splunk SIEM Works


Why Wire Data

Wire data provides an unbiased, complete, immutable, and detailed record of all communication in your environment in a way that log data cannot. Applications without logging enabled can still be monitored, and even where logging is configured, ExtraHop captures critical details not included in the logs.

By supplementing your existing data sources with wire data, your SIEM can get complete visibility into everything communicating in your enterprise, enabling it to detect more threats and empowering your incident responders to discover root cause faster.
