Protect your business with data activity monitoring and actionable security insights

Modern data environments are complex, with data stored in a variety of on-premises and cloud platforms across the organization. You need a data protection solution that can monitor and protect your sensitive data at its source, provide visibility and insights into potential threats, and simplify compliance auditing and reporting.

With IBM Security™ Guardium® Data Protection, your security team can discover and classify data, set entitlement controls, and monitor user activity to help protect sensitive data across your hybrid multicloud environments. Drill down into data environments with IBM Security™ Guardium® Insights, a data security hub built on hybrid multicloud architecture that uses outlier and predictive analytics to help discover hidden threats.

Data-centric security through robust encryption, tokenization and key management solutions

Encryption should be your first and last line of defense. Place protection as close to your data as possible while still enabling authorized users to perform their jobs. Obscure sensitive data with flexible encryption solutions that safeguard data wherever it is stored.

File and volume encryption capabilities, tokenization, application encryption, Teradata encryption from IBM Security™ Guardium® Data Encryption, and security key management capabilities from IBM Security™ Guardium® Key Lifecycle Manager help you maintain control of sensitive data, enforce access policies and support compliance requirements.

Discover vulnerabilities and security gaps, understand and mitigate data risk

What you don’t know can hurt you. Data infrastructure is highly complex and constantly evolving. Misconfigured databases and user accounts can create vulnerabilities, and a lack of visibility into your sensitive data can hide data-related business risk.

Discover the security gaps in your environments, understand data risk and take informed action to mitigate vulnerabilities with IBM Security™ Guardium® Vulnerability Assessment. Use next-generation data discovery and classification and robust vulnerability scanning to locate and resolve database vulnerability exposures. IBM® Data Risk Manager can help you enrich existing data security deployments with a business-consumable data risk control center that helps uncover, analyze and visualize data-related business risk to streamline operations and improve time to value.
