Overall Satisfaction with IBM Security Guardium

IBM Security Guardium is used to detect internal threats in the organization, its detection process is very fast and it also looks for alternative solutions for threats. Sensitive data is often protected by minimizing threats. Provides alerts to any suspicious movement that is generated in the system and seeks to get rid of problems. It also serves to monitor and presents customizable dashboards. It's priced a little high for small businesses, but it's a price you can pay for full-featured software that's worth it.
  • Quickly detect hidden threats that try to enter our systems.
  • Find solutions for problems that directly affect our processes.
  • Protect data with good backup.
  • Provides detailed reports that help make future improvements.
  • Fast implementation but with little documentation.
  • Alert of very frequent threats with false positives.
  • Protect user information.
  • The consolidation of suridan's systems is progressing and this directly helps all departments.
  • Exponential growth of security by more than 30%.
  • It is gratifying to know that our ROI is very positive, this is achieved from the first year.
This aspect of this software is not the best at any stage, both in the implementation, configuration and use in genet there are always usability difficulties, this is because it lacks a good user interface and also lacks extensive documentation that allows Learn more about this software.
It is very common that it generates many security alerts with false positives, but considering that our security increased its efficiency and exponential growth by more than 30% without requiring new licenses, I believe that it has met and exceeded our expectations for the year, this can only be translated in very favorable results.
