Cognitive Computing with Watson

Unlock the power of cognitive security to uncover new insights and rapidly respond to threats.

The volume of security incidents and available threat data far exceed the capacity of even the most skilled security professional. Enter Watson for Cyber Security. It augments a security analyst’s ability to identify and understand sophisticated threats, by tapping into unstructured data (ex. blogs, websites, research papers) and correlating it with local security offenses. IBM QRadar Advisor with Watson combines the cognitive capabilities of Watson and the industry leading QRadar Security Analytics Platform to uncover hidden threats and automate insights, revolutionizing the way security analysts work.

Key Features

Gain local context leading to the incident

When investigating an incident, QRadar Advisor first gathers greater context about that incident by mining local data available in QRadar.

Perform threat research and develop expertise

Watson for Cyber Security taps its knowledge base of unstructured data and uses reasoning to discover additional insights and other threat entities related to the original incident.

Formulate a threat research strategy

QRadar Advisor formulates a threat query to send to Watson for Cyber Security, to perform external knowledge and threat discovery on discrete observations from the incident.

Apply intelligence to understand the threat

QRadar Advisor then refines the information it receives from Watson, to zero in on the key insights relevant to the current incident. It validates the source of the offense and provides additional context to identify and understand the threat.
