    Address big data security challenges

    Solution

    IBM Security Guardium Data Protection for Big Data provides a holistic data security platform for Hadoop and NoSQL environments to help manage data activity, create and enforce appropriate controls, and enable compliance for big data initiatives.

    Analyze data and gain visibility

    Problem

    Because data is constantly changing, moving, and being accessed by new users, it can be difficult to understand what data you have, how it is being used, and if either of these things puts you at risk from a security or compliance perspective.

    Solution

    Guardium automatically discovers critical data and uncovers risk, providing visibility into all transactions and protocols across platforms and users.

    Protect critical data

    Problem

    Insider threat and external attacks pose dangers to data, but traditional approaches can’t enforce separation of duties, recognize suspicious activity in real time, or help you act. Compliance mandates and potential audits increase complexity.

    Solution

    Guardium enables complete protection for sensitive data via real-time capabilities including monitoring, alerting, blocking and quarantining, along with compliance automation to streamline operations and reduce risk of audit failure.
