IBM Q-1 Labs

IBM acquired Q-1 labs in Oct 2011 to round out its security offerings in the newly-formed IBM Security Systems division.  This immediately made IBM a SIEM player with a key spot on Gartner's magic quadrant and since then the original Q-1 labs capability has improved in its ability to integrate with other key enterprise capabilities.
