A couple of notes:

  • the Juniper STRM is an OEM version of QRadar, a SIEM product made by Q1 Labs
  • the same product (QRadar) is also OEM'd by Enterasys as their "Dragon Security Command Console"

There is no CS-MARS replacement product offered by Cisco directly. They left that market segment when they killed MARS off. What they do instead is publish a list of "Technology Partners" that offer SIEM solutions recommended for use in Cisco environments.

The design guides for the partner products are posted in Cisco's "Design Zone" portion of their site, found here:


One of the linked documents linked, the "Lippis Report", explains the philosophy they've adopted now.

The program's "Cisco Developer Network" section also includes additional information on each of the partner products. 

Cisco Developer Network: Security Management Partners

For reference, these are the 6 recommended partners/products:

  • ArcSight
  • LogLogic
  • netForensics
  • RSA
  • SenSage
  • Splunk

There are other options that aren't mentioned here, but this would be a decent place to start.

Anyone have any opinions on the various third party SIEMs? I still have MARS and haven't cared for the few I've looked at, so I'm clinging to MARS for now.

IBM's QRadar solution has a very similar user interface layout and user experience to what MARS used to have, while providing a modern, up-to-date SIEM solution.

Are there any experiences available with this Solarwinds Product...

Wehad a deep look for example at Arcsight, very good but this it's price (sure twice the MARS Costs)..
