IBM® Security Guardium® Data Protection for Big Data – formerly IBM® Security Guardium® Data Activity Monitor for Big Data, but now with simplified packaging – provides data activity monitoring, provides cognitive analytics to discover unusual activity around sensitive data, prevents unauthorized data access, provides alerts on suspicious activities, automates compliance workflows, and protects against internal and external threats. Continuous monitoring and real-time security policies protect data across the enterprise, without changes or performance impacts to data sources or applications.

IBM Security Guardium Data Protection for Big Data is built on a scalable architecture that provides full visibility on data activity and supports both Hadoop and NoSQL environments and can be combined with IBM Security Gaurdium Data Protection for Databases (for databases and data warehouses) and IBM Security Guardium Data Protection for Files for expanded monitoring and protection of sensitive data across the enterprise. For organizations with z/OS environments, IBM also offers IBM Security Guardium Data Protection for z/OS.
