For networking, we use Riverbed NPM. For APM we just finished testing Instana, and I am very impressed with the results. It monitors on-premise, cloud, multicloud and hybrid. It is fully AI and configures almost everything automatically.

I have no experience with Rapid 7 or InsightIDR.  IBM Qradar works great but is not easy to install. If it is running it is a great tool. Also depending on the budget, Riverbed security is a tool to consider. Costs are lower than QRadar and easier to implement.  Or you can…

Many SIEM solutions like QRadar are using UEBA in a SIEM solution. User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) use machine learning to detect anomalies in the behavior of users and devices connected to a corporate network.

Security is changing, they finding always new possibilities to break in. AWS Cloudwatch is more monitoring and log analytics tool, while a SIEM is more a security tool. So yes if your business is important an can not have a long downtime. The combination is better.
