Automate data discovery and classification

Enterprises are challenged with understanding where their data resides and whether it needs to be further protected. IBM Guardium can discover, classify, and catalog regulated structured and unstructured data residing on premises and cloud to uncover vulnerabilities.

Monitoring and protection

A fundamental challenge with data security is identifying who has access and what can they do. Enterprises need real-time activity monitoring for on-premises and cloud data sources, so mission-critical data remains protected. IBM Security Guardium protects data with encryption, key management, real-time alerts, dynamic redaction, quarantining suspect IDs, and more.

Speed up data compliance needs

Varying and often-changing compliance needs are a challenge. IBM Guardium can speed compliance activities using a simplified technical environment and pre-built templates for regulations such as PCI DSS, SOX, HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA, and many more that automate compliance workflows. This enables faster reporting, streamlined processes, reduced TCO, and stronger compliance posture.

Understand risk and prioritize investigations

Your security analysts can quickly become overburdened with non-prioritized threats. Guardium provides advanced analytics and risk scoring to identify unknown threats. By integrating with major security tools, it enables your security analysts to prioritize and orchestrate responses across the SOC and ticketing systems.
