Take a new approach to securing data in the emerging hybrid, multi-cloud world

Does your security team know where your sensitive data resides, who has access to it or the best way to protect it? Without the right tools and resources, you may struggle to mitigate threats or address new compliance mandates, while strategic technology initiatives — such as moving data to the cloud — can fall flat.

IBM Security Guardium® can help you take a smarter, more adaptive approach to protecting critical data wherever it resides.

With the IBM Security Guardium platform, you can:

  • Automatically discover and classify sensitive data
  • Identify data at risk and get remediation recommendations
  • Monitor access and protect data
  • Simplify security and compliance reporting
  • Encrypt data across environments
  • Use contextual insights and analytics
  • Get a business perspective on data risk

Data protection, activity monitoring, actionable insights and compliance reporting

Cloud-based technologies help increase agility, competitiveness and innovation. But they can also add complexity, limited visibility, fragmented controls and slow reporting. As a result, threats and vulnerabilities go undetected; migration to the cloud is delayed, or even canceled or reversed.

IBM Security Guardium discovers and classifies data, as well as monitors and audits activity to help protect sensitive data across hybrid multi-cloud environments. With Guardium, your security teams can set entitlements and access controls, streamline compliance and get contextual insights and analytics to help detect and block suspicious activity.

Robust and certified encryption, tokenization and key management solutions

If your data is breached, you need a last line of defense that places protection as close to your data as possible and still enables authorized users to perform their jobs. Obscure sensitive data with flexible encryption solutions that safeguard data on premises, in a single cloud, multiple clouds or hybrid environments.

File and volume encryption capabilities, tokenization, application encryption, Teradata encryption, and security key management capabilities help you maintain control of sensitive data, enforce access policies and map to compliance requirements.

Data security optimization and risk analysis

As you build data security programs around new regulations, adopt new technologies and move to new deployment models, you need to avoid complexity and improve data security scalability.

Enrich existing data security deployments with optimization, reporting and risk analysis capabilities. They’ll help you streamline operations, improve time to value, and combine data security information with other tools to provide contextual insights.

Data discovery, classification and vulnerability assessment scans

What you don’t know can hurt you. Keeping up with explosive data growth, understanding your regulatory exposure, and managing vulnerabilities across your data sources can’t scale with manual methods.

Use next-generation data discovery and classification and robust vulnerability scanning to automatically understand what sensitive or regulated data your organization holds.  You can then identify database vulnerability exposures and misconfigurations, and get remediation recommendations.
