    Neither.

    NitroSecurity (now called McAfee ESM) and LogRhythm are my top 2 SIEMs by a wide margin.

    I can't justify the crazy price increase they attached to it now that IBM slapped their logo on it.

    QRadar is now covered through IBM education and support services, so maybe that justifies a price increase, along with the new "Q1 Labs, an IBM company" moniker too. ;)

    I have no idea what the current market value for the CCSK cert is. Are employers asking for people with the CCSK?

    My informal test ("Sorry, we couldn't find any jobs matching your search") says No. ;)

    I've actually seen it asked for more than Comptia's CASP. lol:D

    Looks like the SIEMs from Q1 Labs, ArcSight, and McAfee are leading Gartner's "Magic Quadrant" pack!
