This is a highly scalable solution, but it requires a lot of resources. For example, I know of a big bank that has been a long-time user of this solution, but they were looking to replace it because they need forty-four Guardium severs in order to monitor their entire database farm. They feel that this is too much and will cost a lot. They do not have a new solution at the moment, although they are looking at other options. Before this solution existed, people did not have really have anything in place. It was a new concept and it became critical when people came to understand database risks. In 2011 or 2012, many banks started to use Guardium, and since then, it has been spreading to other sectors such as government, transportation, and healthcare. View full review »
