Guardium Insights is a modernized hybrid cloud data security hub that can help address these problems, helping clients to improve visibility into user data activity and risk, protect data more efficiently, enhance IT flexibility, and reduce operational costs as organizations embrace new business paradigms, such as moving data to the cloud.
