Overall Satisfaction with IBM Security Guardium

IBM Security Guardium is an amazing tool that is currently being used in many departments of our organization to implement security policies. This is helping us a lot in securing our confidential data and minimizing security threats. It helps us in monitoring all the data activity to detect any kind of anomalies.
  • Prevention of any kind of data leak.
  • All the monitoring activities can be automated easily.
  • Easy integration with Hadoop and other databases.
  • GUI needs some improvement.
  • It is not highly customizable.
  • The visualization in the reports that are generated isn't much appealing.
  • Increase in efficiency due to automation.
  • Reduced Data Risks
  • Improved Business Processes Outcomes.
IBM Security Guardium has a bit older User Interface which needs some improvement and sometimes could be a bit complex to use. Also, the learning curve is a bit steep for a new user.
IBM Security Guardium has immensely helped us in reducing the risks for our critical data. We feel much more secure now as we can monitor the data in a real-time and if there are any anomalies then it sends us notifications that are having a positive impact on our organization and client trust.
