IBM Security Guardium Data Protection empowers security teams to
safeguard sensitive data through discovery and classification, data
activity monitoring, vulnerability assessments, and advanced threat
detection — extending comprehensive data protection across
heterogeneous environments, including databases, data warehouses,
mainframes, file systems, file shares, cloud and big data platforms.
Guardium Data Protection helps organizations to adopt a zero trust
approach that never assumes anyone or anything is trustworthy, but
continuously verifies whether access to data should be granted based
on contextual information. Guardium continuously monitors all data
access operations in real-time to detect unauthorized actions based
on detailed context — the “who, what, where, when and how” of each
data access. It reacts automatically to help prevent unauthorized or
suspicious activities by privileged insiders and potential hackers.
