What is most valuable?

The most valuable is the GUI, the interface. It also interfaces well with REST API, if you want to automate some of the commands. Inside the GUI they've really done a lot, especially from version 9 to version 10, in how they lay it out and... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has really helped identify areas that we need to fix. It also identifies, from a compliance standpoint, records we can provide. It shows us just how secure we are overall, as a company, rather than just trying to do things here and there.... more»

What needs improvement?

I'd like to see a smoother GUI interface for the CAS agent - CAS does configurations on the database - to interface better with the vulnerability assessments. I'd also like to make sure that the data sources can be more easily managed,... more»

What is most valuable?

I'm not aware of our using any of the existing advanced features. I was only in on the initial implementation, so if they have added new things since then, I'm not aware of it.

How has it helped my organization?

It's another layer to help us identify, especially from audit perspectives. It's allowing us to be more proactive than reactive on alerts and access rights and types of resources that are being hit. Before, there were a lot of different... more»

What needs improvement?

If I used it every day I'd probably be able to give you a really good answer. But I don't.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is using the capture operation mode “S-TAP/K-TAP agent”, because all activities in the database are captured, including direct access to the database server by privileged users. This is useful because, even if the... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Improved security through the visibility and control of all access to the databases.

What needs improvement?

I have already mentioned to IBM that a primary need is to improve the number of records in the reports above 65,535.

What is most valuable?

Satisfies audit requests, to give us an idea if anybody is accessing our privileged user IDs without our knowledge. We don't use any of the advanced features. Regarding other features we would like to implement, I don't deal with the actual... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It's more secure. The big issue is satisfying audit requirements, that is really big in our company right now. We also use Guardium to support security initiatives and compliance policies within our organization. For what we do, we need to... more»

What needs improvement?

Right now we're having some issues where it's using a high CPU, we don't know why. So, better testing before the product is ready would help.

What is most valuable?

* Our ability to see when users are accessing sensitive data. * The front-end works very well. * Gathering the data works very well. We are using quite a few of the advanced features. Some of those include some scripting for integration with... more»

How has it helped my organization?

One of the greatest benefits for using Guardium is our ability to monitor sensitive data. With current policy and GDPR for international, then audited compliance for monitoring access to sensitive data, it is very critical for our industry in... more»

What needs improvement?

One of the limitations that everyone who uses Guardium knows is its ability for back-end reporting. Guardium in and of itself is a big data platform. It creates big data all by itself. The ability to collect it sometimes is easier than the... more»
