Deployment options to suit your enterprise needs

Guardium Insights is available as-a-service, on the Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform, or as software hosted on your private cloud. Deploy and scale with the flexibility to match your enterprise needs.

Advanced analytics to analyze and score risks

Guardium Insights uses advanced analytics to identify abnormal or suspicious user behavior and generate contextual, actionable insights. It then scores risks according to potential impact, to help prioritize remediation and stop potential breaches.

Integration with mission-critical tools

Guardium Insights integrates with SIEM, SOC, ticketing platforms and more by using REST APIs or, in the case of IBM Cloud Pak® for Security, shared architecture. This enables contextualized risk insights to be shared across teams.

Automated compliance and streamlined workflows

Customize data monitoring policies and define the audit lifecycle. Automate compliance policy enforcement to reduce time spent meeting requirements.

Fast reporting to keep security teams informed

Generate reports in seconds, and create new custom reports as needed. Correlate and visualize data source activity over time, identify historical trends and share reports with key data security and data governance stakeholders across the enterprise.

Long-term data retention

Use Guardium Insights as a data security hub to centralize and store data activity monitoring (DAM) data. Retain monitoring data such as user activity and critical audit data for years to enrich investigations and meet compliance goals.

Advanced discovery and classification

Integration with IBM Security Discover and Classify enables you to quickly understand where sensitive data lives, its business context, how the data moves, and activity around it. Prioritize response to risks by understanding how sensitive the data is in a given data source and how critical it is to the business.

Fully customizable UI

A simple point-and-click connections experience to add new data sources (such as Cosmos, MongoDB, HDFS, and more) in seconds. A home screen can be tailored to show the analytics and reports most valuable to you, for greater visibility and simplified setup. Login and immediately surface the data you need most.

Guardium Insights features in action

Combat tool sprawl It can be a challenge to get multiple, disparate IT and security systems to work together efficiently. See how to build a more cohesive data security strategy.

Integrate with the SIEM Data security tools must communicate with other mission-critical security platforms—especially the SIEM—to enable fast and easy data sharing. See how they can be fully integrated with IBM Security products and other tools.

Break down security siloes Data security is everyone’s business. As data sprawl continues, it’s necessary to share data security insights across siloed teams. See how your teams can share tickets with the security operations center (SOC) for a collaborative threat response.

Build reports immediately When it comes to an audit or a data breach, there is no time to spare. Often, putting together data security reports for these events can take hours. See how you can generate these reports in seconds.

Generate custom reports To meet data security goals, sometimes customization is necessary. But building custom reports often takes too much effort to be practical. See how to quickly set ranges, parameters and filters specific to your organization's needs—in minutes.
