Identify threats and security gaps in databases

To meet compliance requirements, counter insider and external threats and achieve the principles of zero trust, it’s critical that you understand where vulnerabilities in your database infrastructure lie. IBM Security™ Guardium® Vulnerability Assessment scans data infrastructures such as databases, data warehouses and big data environments to detect vulnerabilities and suggest remedial actions. This vulnerability assessment tool identifies exposures such as missing patches, weak passwords, unauthorized changes and misconfigured privileges. Full reports are provided as well as suggestions to address all vulnerabilities. Guardium Vulnerability Assessment detects behavioral vulnerabilities such as account sharing, excessive administrative logins and unusual after-hours activity. It identifies threats and security gaps in databases that could be exploited by hackers.
