    Address structured data security challenges


    Data is dynamic, distributed, and in demand—and databases hold some of your organization’s most sensitive data. Native logging approaches to support security and compliance can be operationally complex and don’t ensure data confidentiality.


    Guardium Data Protection for Databases provides a holistic data security platform for structured data in databases and data warehouses on major operating systems.

    Analyze data and gain visibility


    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 by whom. This can put your organization at risk from a security or compliance perspective.


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

    Protect sensitive data


    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.


    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.
