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

Sophos Intercept X for Server

Since this is a server protection software, its use cases are limited to server infrastructure. If you have a number of servers to protect, I would really recommend this product. it is easy to use (for the most part), it is lightweight and reliable. Another plus is the cloud management console and the ease of creating different policies and applying to different server types.

Cons

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.

Support is generally great, however, they can be a bit more flexible and faster to respond. Considering I have purchased a few hundred licenses, I think my support desk deserves to be at least able to schedule calls with the support, which is not always the case. Apart from that, they are always helpful, knowledgeable and have, so far, resolved any and all issues that we have been needing help with.

Sophos Intercept X for Server

We aleady had few of the applications from Sophos, so it was a natural decision to try out Sophos Intercept X for Server. So for this specific case we went for the trial to check the performance and found that it did an amazing job. That's also why we didn't evaluate any other software
