Cons
"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."
