Likelihood to Recommend

IBM Security Guardium

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

Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall

Any serious small or large business that is utilizing a mainstream database, purchase ordering system, and web platform should look into this software - especially if you're using softwares compliant with this protector. It really does do an outstanding job of addressing all weaknesses through auditing and vaulting the potential virus concerns.

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.

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.

Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall

Whilst Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall Systems were more costly than the closest alternative, there was more ample community support, 3rd party support, more capable functionality for our complex infrastructures, and additional features for audit.
