Likelihood to Recommend

DbProtect

Monitoring database activity internally was a huge concern for my company, which is why we implemented DbProtect. I would recommend this to anyone that has lower end traffic on their SQL servers. My company appeared to be too big for DbProtect and was not a good fit, but it would be useful for a smaller company.

The product integration is very bad on the SIEM platform. We also use IBM Qradar (the same product). While alerts can be sent successfully with Syslog, admin activities cannot be sent successfully. According to us, alert/query flexibility is very successful. Also, data masking is better at alerts, queries or reports. Due to its architecture, the management of all components is very efficient. Database vulnerability scanning with the same agent is also excellent

Cons

DbProtect

  • Speed of interface.
  • The trace function utilized high resources at times and would sometimes crash servers.
  • Support could have been better, but this is when the company was under Trustwave and even the owners before then.

  • GUI was very complex older than v10, it becomes a little bit easy to use, but the user interface should be developed to become easier.
  • The error logs are hard to understand. If there is an issue about any function, the error messages cannot be understand easily.

In the last few years there has been slow and unsolved in support from IBM. Not only for IBM Guardium but also for other IBM products.

Alternatives Considered

DbProtect

The price is the complete opposite and Imperva provided things that DbProtect did not. I would suggest a cleaner interface and more reporting in DbProtect. These things may exist now, but did not when I was a customer of DbProtect. DbProtect when configured correctly will do what you want it to and help secure databases.

IBM is the only company that I have used. It is reliable and easy to use, I trust it and my company and employers do as well.
