Ansible and IBM QRadar

Automate Intelligence

IBM Security QRadar is a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) that enables security teams to collect and analyze event and log data in real-time from multiple sources, for early detection of cyberthreats. Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform enables security teams to automate key QRadar operational tasks through Ansible workflows that support incident response, forensics and regulatory compliance.  


Ansible and QRadar, better together

Ansible is the open and powerful language security teams can use to interoperate across the various security technologies involved in their day-to-day activities.

Ansible modules allow users to integrate QRadar in sophisticated security automated workflows through the automation of the following functionalities:

  • Log sources configuration
  • Offense rules enablement
  • Offense management


Solution Benefits

  • Automate QRadar configuration deployments
  • Access data sources programmatically to support investigation activities
  • Enable and disable correlation rules through workflows for incidents prioritization
  • Change the priority of an offense, change its ownership and track activities in it's note field direcrtly via Ansible

The IBM Security QRadar Ansible collections, available on Automation Hub, contain both modules and plugins to support response and remediation scenarios.  The modules are also designed to accommodate multiple use cases, such as day 0 when you want to deploy a certain technology and subsequently connect it to IBM QRadar.
