IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

IBM Guardium Data Protection Primary Use Case

Md Saiful Hyder - PeerSpot reviewer
AGM, Enterprise Solutions at Omgea Exim Ltd

Currently, my customer has 10 different types of databases for their various banking applications and they intend to deploy IBM Guardium Data Protection to secure their database activities. As soon as it is deployed, we're able to get some insights into what is going on with their databases, to help ensure the integrity of their data in the future.

Two banks are also working on two opportunities with IBM Guardium right now. I believe this is a compliance requirement; nowadays, everyone has to buy database protection. In that case, technically, Oracle will get the added advantage here, because most of the banks are already using Oracle database.

IBM Guardium Data Protection is used not just for protecting data, but also for vulnerability protection. We use it to monitor our active users, activity, and databases, to look at the kind of commands users do on the databases.

We also use the solution to restrict unauthorized users from accessing the databases. Apart from restricting unauthorized users from accessing these databases, we also need to have the stability to add the database, then switch to another database.

We can also turn on the blocking feature of IBM Guardium Data Protection to ensure that some IPs are unable to connect to some databases.

We are resellers of IBM. Most of the use cases of IBM Guardium are to monitor the database activity. The first is to identify any abnormal activities like trying to access the database or trying to create or delete any scheme on the tables.

We deal with a range of customers and lately the issue of data privacy and user identity has become very important and many companies are now seriously evaluating tools like Guardium. Companies want to know who is accessing database applications and what they are doing. This product is geared towards medium and large size enterprise companies. We're partners of IBM and I'm a company Vice President.
