IBM Guardium Data Protection Pricing and License Cost

Trusted Security Advisor at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
In the past, the pricing of IBM Guardium was very complex. It was dependent on the number of CPUs and other things to support the servers. Nowadays, things have changed. Pricing is dependent on the number of databases and the number of servers. The licensing fees are paid yearly. One of the deployments that I know of had three databases, and the yearly fees are approximately $50,000 USD. There are some additional add-ons that are available, but I do not see many people taking them. There is encryption, and there is a Guardium Inspection license, but I am not sure of the costs.

I'm not sure of the exact cost of the solution, however, I believe the features have separate costs. We have a data protection license and on top of that, we need to buy however many databases we need to monitor everything effectively. View full review »

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. View full review »
