Centralized monitoring for hybrid multiclouds

Monitor data activity across disparate cloud and on-premises data sources — and with the Guardium Universal Connector Framework (link resides outside, easily build connectors to additional data sources.

Modern architecture for flexible deployment

Built on the Red Hat® OpenShift® container platform, Guardium Insights is compatible with major cloud data sources, including AWS Kinesis and Microsoft Azure Event Hubs. Deploy and scale with flexibility as business and cloud priorities change.

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 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 allows 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.
