I like IBM Guardium Data Protection because of its good performance. The resources aren't used up to the detriment of the application. It's robust, and we don't really have any serious downtime on it. The support for the application is also okay.

The purpose of EBM Guardium is to monitor database activity and who is accessing it. This is the most valuable feature.

We have privileged users, like the DBAs, who are most often the ones accessing the database. We also have web services and application services that talk to the database. With IBM Guardium Data Protection we can see who the previous users were and what web or server actually connected to the data business. 

Secondly, any changes done by the DBAs are recorded so we know that the DB has changed in the data structure, scheme, or creation of a table or drop of a table.

We use the GBDI feature which is very helpful for our needs. The centralization of data is probably the most valuable feature because we span multiple database technologies.

There are different modules but the most valuable ones are firewalling and masking. Additionally, the auditing of the entire database is helpful, which includes all the activity of the database users and administrators. We can monitor everything and log as well.

The most valuable features are the modules, discovery classification, and vulnerability assessment. The reporting side is also very, very good, especially its flexibility which allows you to tailor the reports to whatever information you want. It also has the advantage of architectural data collection from the database.
