A comprehensive firewall and data security solution package with superior reporting capability

What is our primary use case?

We generally use Imperva as a database firewall and for activity monitoring. The solution has to fit the organization first. Once we know the product is a fit, we support in the creation of reports. We look at the core users (administrators, auditors, accountants, etc.) who need to get information and we look at the responsibility matrix. Our responsibility is the database and we try to implement the total solution for an organization. This means reports are created for the specific needs of, say, IT security administrators, top management, IT guys, etc. This shows each group or individual… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Flexible reporting allows for customization that keeps the admins from having to interact with system automation."
  • "Performance can be slow under heavy loads, but this should be adjusted by scaling."

What other advice do I have?

Imperva is a good product if you look at its core functionality and the way it's built. It's a newer product and very consistent. Oracle has been around a long time and may suffer from that legacy a little. If clients want a product which covers all database management systems, then Imperva can work out of the box. Ideally, you can deploy within a day or two of signing a contract. Implementation time with Imperva is much shorter than with Oracle. I think I would rate Imperva a nine out of ten, despite the occasional performance issues. It delivers on the core functionality. If it's running…

An easy-to-deploy solution with good price, compatibility, stability, and scalability

What is our primary use case?

One of my customers is a company that manages telecommunications in Mexico. It is a very important company, and they use Guardium for compliance purposes. They use it to comply with PCI, for example. We have on-premises and cloud deployments. We are currently deploying a customer's environment in Microsoft Azure with SQL Server.

Pros and Cons

  • "One of the most valuable features is the accelerator. It has a predefined report for PCI SOX compliance and other compliances."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

We would recommend this solution to others. It is a good solution at a good price, and your data is invaluable. I would rate IBM Guardium Data Protection a nine out of ten.
