Overall Satisfaction with IBM Security Guardium

IBM Security Guardium is currently being used in some of the departments in my organization. This tool helps us in getting more control over our data along with great security. This also helps us in detecting unusual activities in our company. It has a set of predefined policies that helps us a lot during the audit processes.
  • It provides data classification so the customers don't have to take care of the SQL traffic.
  • It is very easy to install on the existing databases and prevents the data losses.
  • This provides a great security to our sensitive data.
  • The User Interface needs some improvement.
  • Reporting feature is not very customizable.
  • The error messages are very difficult to interpret.
  • The deployment process could be bit lengthy.
  • The Business processes have become more efficient.
  • We don't have to worry about data security anymore so there is a cost reduction in that process.
  • Improvement in Risk Management.
The IBM Security Guardium is a bit easy to use and the learning curve isn't very steep. Any new person could go through the training and start working on it. The User Interface also looks simple and fairly easy to use with different functions and features.
It has immensely increased data security and now we don't have to worry about the breach in our sensitive business data. It keeps track if there is any unusual activity and accordingly sends alerts/notifications.

IBM Security Guardium is a costly solution so it is not recommended for Small to mid-size organizations. The architecture is great which helps in the management of different components and makes the process very efficient. The alert/notifications flexibility is really successful and comes in very handy. Your sensitive data is very much secured because of this tool.
