What is most valuable?
- Detailed and customizable reports with real-time alerts for the full vision of database/files activity.
- Versatile rules for access control in real-time including blocking, masking, etc.: These rules are really helpful to fulfill enterprise security specifications. With them, you could divide roles, creating safe access zones; manage credentials; and access rules. The rules are easy to develop and customize.
What needs improvement?
- UI: Version 10 of Guardium was introduced with a new UI that was completely redesigned. Some fast-access functions and options are not easy to find in the new UI.
- Real-time masking is a bit simple and doesn't allow you to create complex masking rules.
