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."

More IBM Guardium Data Protection Cons »

"This solution doesn't audit the network.""Customized reporting is something that we are struggling with, and it is quite tough for us.""One feature that is missing is the ability to have a secret server that is always encrypted.""The product monitors only the database and not the operating systems.""Some of our customers were asking about latency when the application wants to get to the database.""We would like to see the ability to administer and manage the solution through Enterprise Manager 13c, and development of the dashboards that are generally missing."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More IBM Guardium Data Protection Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licensing cost is about $360,000, annually.""This solution is definitely not expensive, and it is a small fraction of the overall database licensing costs.""Oracle can be an expensive solution depending on the options and user needs.""For the bank, the license was $48,000 last time. That was the licensing for the bank on just one license."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: From the perspective of analysis and prevention, this product is pretty accurate.
Top Answer: 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.
Top Answer: The primary use case is for ensuring compliance with databases. It allows monitoring of what kind of statements and alterations are going on, as well as who is accessing what data.
Top Answer: Similar to Oracle Database, licensing is per core.  Since Audit Vault is installed on a separate server, licensing is based on the database core count being audited and its perpetual.
