Overall Satisfaction with IBM Security Guardium

We have a wide view of organization databases with Guardium solutions. We have more control over the data and they are facing in a better way the audits. We use the documents and daily reports for audits and verifications. Security in databases is also improved due to features such as CAS or Vulnerability Assessments.
  • Give a range of commands to scope amount of data collected.
  • Helps in aggregating the collected data well.
  • Helps in being compliant with standards.
  • Graphs have scope of improvement in reports.
  • Data classification is a very powerful tool but it does not provide an incremental of the sensitive data found.
  • Deployment process is time taking and slow.
  • The tool is well received.
  • The tools is heavy in storage and backup in terms of data.
  • The tools keeps the auditors happy.
The Guardium is a complete tool to be used in terms of compliance, analytics, DBA, and other monitoring.

It has multiple features for Database monitoring and security from vulnerability assessment to login failures.
Auditors look for reports that Guardium provides to have a good look into who has access to data and what level of commands are running. Guardium reports are also used for Analytics by some teams in my environment.
