QRadar & Ixia Automated Remediation Guide

Ixia Network Visibility Solutions (NVS) work in concert with IBM Security QRadar SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) and Packet Recorder/Analysis tools to better troubleshoot security issues. The Ixia NPB passively directs out-of-band network traffic from multiple access points (SPANs or TAPs) in the network to monitoring tools for analysis. Traffic is aggregated from all needed access points in the network to provide comprehensive visibility. Ixia NVS’s Automated Response Technology complements IBM QRadar’s ability to detect, analyze and respond to security events. When QRadar detects an event or creates an event as a result of correlating events, the Ixia unit can automatically send the right traffic to a packet recorder/analyzer or other tool.
