ArcSight and QRadar are the two well-known Security Identification and Event Management tools that support detecting threats in an environment and resolving them quickly. This blog will be a good choice for anyone interested in knowing the differences between these two. This blog will discuss the basic differences between ArcSight and QRadar, their features, pros and cons, and many more.
As you know, cyber-attacks would severely damage enterprises if the security systems are not appropriately managed. It is essential that we detect threats in the environment earlier before they could attack and harm data and other resources. In this way, ArcSight and QRadar are two well-known SIEM (Security Identification and Event Management) tools that provide effective threat control and protection to networks in the best possible ways.
This blog will compare the two technologies, ArcSight and QRadar, in terms of their various aspects, such as products, features, deployment, pricing, and benefits.
ArcSight is the security solution tool offered by Microfocus, which provides you with real-time threat detection based on SIEM. As ArcSight makes extensive visibility across enterprises, it mitigates threats through real-time threat detection and AI-based analytics. With automated workflow, ArcSight provides effective threat detection, threat analysis, and generates insights.

QRadar is another SIEM tool offered by IBM, which provides an advanced solution to detect threats in your network quickly and prioritize the mitigation of threats through intelligence solutions. Initially, it collects security log data of the entire environment, analyses it, and finally detects threats. At best, QRadar optimizes data usage through effective normalization and aggregation processes, making data exploration as simple to identify threats.
Microfocus offers powerful products such as ArcSight ESM, ArcSight Intelligence, ArcSight Recon, ArcSight Security Open Data Platform, ArcSight SOAR (Security Orchestration Automation and Response), and ArcSight Sentinel.
On the other side, QRadar offers you comprehensive solutions such as QRadar XDR Connect, QRadar EDR, QRadar SIEM, QRadar SOAR, and QRadar NDR.
Let us see the primary objective of these tools one by one.
According to Google Trends, both platforms have been highly interested in people for the last five years. Even though ArcSight had been searched by people five years before, both the products are interested people almost equally in recent years.
