"Every breach is a race against time. This new forensics module further expands the breadth and depth of
IBM Security QRadar Incident Forensics will help any member of an IT security team quickly and efficiently research security incidents or test for conditions associated with an observed attack pattern from an Internet threat intelligence feed such as X-Force. By using this guidance, security teams can avoid spending valuable time searching through petabytes of network traffic, and potentially discovering nothing of immediate value. With QRadar, security analysts can quickly collect security data related to an incident.
