Protect data, reduce complexity and improve outcomes

Security and compliance professionals are facing more data, regulations, and security tools than ever before – with obstacles to sensitive data protection growing larger every day.

2.5 quintillion

bytes of data are created daily

50 percent

of security risk stems from having multiple, disparate vendors and products

27 percent

of organizations globally will experience a data breach in the next two years

A unified data protection platform

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.

Data activity monitoring, protection, and compliance reporting

Traditional, manual approaches to data protection can’t enforce separation of duties, recognize suspicious activity in real time, unify results, or help you act. Compliance mandates and potential audits increase complexity. Guardium Data Protection solutions help monitor and audit all data activity across databases, files, cloud deployments, mainframe environments, big data repositories and containers. You can view key insights through a unified user interface.

Enforce sensitive data protection with real-time controls and cognitive analytics, and accelerate compliance with prebuilt reports and workflows for GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, SOX and more.

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.
