Protect big data and semi-structured data sources

Guardium Data Protection for big data provides automated sensitive data discovery and classification, real-time data activity monitoring and machine learning analytics to discover unusual activity around sensitive data. The solution learns regular user access patterns and detects suspicious activity, providing administrators with options to block access or quarantine user IDs to protect against internal and external threats. The solution helps greatly accelerate compliance workflows through pre-built regulation templates. The software provides full visibility on data activity and supports both Hadoop and NoSQL environments.

    Address semi-structured data security challenges

    Problem

    Big data usage is growing, but big data platforms weren’t originally designed with data security in mind. Your team needs to use the advanced capabilities of big data platforms, but can’t afford to risk the inherent gaps.

    Solution

    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 Data Protection automatically discovers critical data and uncovers risk, providing visibility into all transactions and protocols across platforms—including big data platforms—and users.

    Protect sensitive 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 Data Protection 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.
