IBM Guardium® External S-TAP® is a component of Guardium that works with your
databases for compliance monitoring and data security. You can install and
configure the External S-TAP service in high-availability mode to intercept
TCP/IP traffic (plain-text or encrypted) between Cloud Pak for Data users and
database services. The intercepted traffic is sent to the Guardium collector
for parsing, policy enforcement, logging, and reporting.
To monitor database instances on Cloud Pak for Data with the External S-TAP
service, you must also acquire IBM Guardium Data Protection entitlements.
Use the External S-TAP service to monitor any data source that is supported
by the Guardium External S-TAP. For a list of supported data sources,
