We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It provides the ability to roll back to a point in time or roll forward without the assistance of a DBA."
"Delphix interfaces are simple to use and very user friendly."
"Data being available anytime is a life changer."
"The most valuable feature is creating virtual databases."
"It allows us to put in controls to make sure that only the right persons access the proper records in the database."
"From the perspective of analysis and prevention, this product is pretty accurate."
"Ease of deployment is a valuable feature."
"The most valuable features are the reporting and data-level access control."
"he solution offers trouble-free access."
"One of the most valuable features is the accelerator. It has a predefined report for PCI SOX compliance and other compliances."
"IBM Guardium Data Protection has better integration options than most of the leading competitors on the market, and the price is always better."
"The product has proven to be flexible"
"My only complaint about this solution is the price."
"Delphix is a strong solution for virtualization, but it's not strong enough for creating data, so we have to use another solution for creating new data."
"GUI could be improved."
"This product should be extended and made to be a more comprehensive storage solution."
"The biggest complaint that I hear from customers and users is that using this solution requires database skills, yet it is a security and monitoring tool."
"Sometimes the connectors to the databases need to be manually updated and we have to configure them again, which is something that should be improved."
"Flexibility could be improved."
"The price of this solution is quite high for smaller organizations, so they should release a version that is affordable for small and medium-sized businesses."
"The technical support is very poor."
"The most important requirements for us are integration with new database solutions and the ability to manage things like Jailbreak or something like that. Its reduction feature can also be improved. It has a functionality called reduction, which is like masking data, but it is just a replacement of characters. Sometimes the customer needs more than this. It would be good if it was more advanced or complete. We also have a problem with this solution because the IBM aggregator isn't working very well. IBM has created big data intelligence for Guardium, and occasionally, customers need three or four months of data, but they can't run it from the collectors. It can have a better dashboard and more pre-defined use cases for those customers who don't have any idea about data protection or don't have expert personnel in this area. For example, they can include five use cases for banks and five use cases for retail."
"Guardium Data Protection is far better in terms of external integration. But in terms of firewall features, like when you're blocking activities, it's as if Oracle AVDF simply has superior features. This is just from third-party observations, but the users of Oracle AVDF are saying that when it comes to the firewall and protection functionality, they're much more inclined to AVDF."
"The installation should be a bit easier."
"The cost is $370K annually for the Delphix Masking Engine and Delphix Virtualization Engine."
"One of the deployments that I know of had three databases, and the yearly fees are approximately $50,000 USD."
"Its cost is good. With the new metric of licensing, such as PDO not being available now, customers are expecting a good price for the solution."
"For IBM Guardium, licensing is very simple and straightforward. There are no issues I can speak of."
