IBM Guardium Data Protection Review

It made the setup easy for us

What is our primary use case?

Database encryption.

What is most valuable?

  • Encryption
  • Data activity monitoring
  • It has a set of modules.
  • I compliment with Optum for a data masking solution.

What needs improvement?

An integration with Optum. Optum is another solution, but it is a segmenting software, portfolio not security. However, I am selling them together as one solution, Guardium and Optum.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

How is customer service and technical support?

I am dependent on my team for support of this product.

Which solutions did we use previously?

My main solution was Micro Focus voltage data encryption solution, but it was too complicated. 

How was the initial setup?

Encryption is not straightforward, but Guardium made the setup easy for us.

What other advice do I have?

Most important criteria when choosing to partner with a company: I started working with IBM only one year back. When I started a partnership with them, IBM had the security portfolio which covered most of the region where my customers were. IBM has a name with the support along the quality of its products.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Reseller.
