"IBM Security For IT "

What do you like best?

IBM Security Guardian helped to secure my privacy, and integrity of my data and information that proved to be the most critical for my working environment. It was very versatile in the areas that it could support. Mainly I used it for file systems and databases and it worked equally well across both environments.

What do you dislike?

Although IBM's purpose is to protect sensitive data and to minimize risk, which it did, I had a difficult time setting the system up in order for it to analyze my data risk. It was a complicated process.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a specialist set up the system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The data security that it now offers my company protects my databases and helps to analyze what is happening in my systems. Data security is our top priority and it helps to shield sensitive data from external and internal factors.

"Awesome security !"

What do you like best?

My favorite part of this experience was the easy of the entire program. It made it easy to understand and move around. I was able to feel comfortable to show others in the company the ways around the system. I got many positive reviews back

What do you dislike?

It was time consuming to start up the process. I did not understand all the initial questions that were being asked. After I talked to someone from the company I was able to understand what was needed to continue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes i would recommend it! Make sure you take the time to learn the program inside and out. Once you start to understand what is going on, your life becomes alot easier. It has been the best blessing altogether!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the ability to maintain a certain ability to stay safe within the system. Being able to use it throughout the entire company helps us feel secure.

"IBM Security Guardium"

What do you like best?

I like the security aspect and updated data information that can be used across platforms. I also like that since we don't use apple computers, it's an easier interface. IBM has a reputable name, so I trust it as well.

What do you dislike?

I enjoy IBM but I do feel as though they don't keep up with the times as far as media updates, latest up to date quarter, trends, etc. I wish they were a little more modern in their networking and interface. I wish more companies were using the program, so that we could also consult with them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check with your computers, interface, other programs that you are using to make sure they are user friendly. I would also go check different consumer reviews and also the pricing. If there is a trial period, and also the jump in cost after the initial development period. That was one thing that I wish we looked at prior.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving interface and data security breaches, we've realized the benefits of having the security that we haven't had before so it's a nice ease of mind. Now a days with all the security breaches, it's important to know we have that peace of mind.

"User friendly and easy to set up"

What do you like best?

There were some specific requirements that we needed security for at my place of business and guardium was able to be modified and set up to meet them

What do you dislike?

It is a little clunky for unfamiliar users and we had to use a third party set up

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The support for this program is unparalleled, meaning that those of us who are not in securities are able to access assistance to make sure that we are getting everything that we can from this program

"Improved security through visibility"

What do you like best?

The ability to see when users are accessing sensitive data. Gathering the data works very well. Satisfies audit requests, to give us an idea if anybody is accessing our privileged user IDs without our knowledge.

What do you dislike?

Better testing before the product is ready would help. Also, reporting capabilities.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It does a good job for what it's designed to do. If it's the vendor or a third-party telling you how things should be set up out of the gate, go with that and don't argue with them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think we have a better handle on who is accessing our data. It has automated a bunch of manual tasks.

"Great for Privacy"

What do you like best?

Data is safe and secure. Great for anyone working in compliance.

What do you dislike?

When it comes to this protection platform one needs to be trained and have some knowledge on how to work it. Could be a little more user friendly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Working in a compliance department it is food to store and safeguard critical data.

"Top notch security which is easy."

What do you like best?

Most of it is built in. You have to do very little for using it. Its mostly signing up and in putting some info and then let it run.

What do you dislike?

I thought the price over all was kind of high for the most part compared to other software programs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest you give it a try.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mainly the stuff that can pop up with all the information coming in and then infiltrating into our systems. You have to have a constant guard and it has to be constantly updated.
