The ability to identify and understand how assets are being used in your network is critical to security. Not just for detecting devices, but building a dataset of historical information about assets and being able to track asset information across your network as it changes.

The goal of asset profiles is to bring all the information known about the assets in your network and update the data as new information is provided to QRadar. This allows administrators to more effectively report on, search, audit, and leverage rules to identify threats, vulnerabilities, and asset usage with relevant data.

In this course, you learn how assets can be discovered and then dynamically updated by QRadar, including network information, running applications and services, active users, vulnerabilities, and more.


This video provides an overview of key Log Source Management app features. In addition to the overview, the video demonstrates how to bulk add and bulk edit log sources, how to update DSMs and protocols, and how to test log sources with the app.

  • Learn about the new Disconnected Log Manager feature
  • Explore the Log Source Management app user interface
  • Learn how to bulk add and edit log sources
  • Learn how to update DSMs and protocols
  • Learn how to test log sources to confirm whether they are configured correctly


IBM Security QRadar enables deep visibility into network, endpoint, user, and application activity. It provides collection, normalization, correlation, and secure storage of events, flows, assets, and vulnerabilities. Suspected attacks and policy breaches are highlighted as offenses. In this course, you learn about the solution architecture, how to navigate the user interface, and how to investigate offenses. You search and analyze the information from which QRadar concluded a suspicious activity. Hands-on exercises reinforce the skills learned. This course is based on IBM Security QRadar 7.4.1.
