Configuring the Guardium Universal Connector for MongoDB

New in IBM Security Guardium 11.3, the universal connector allows you to configure a connection from native database activity logs to the Guardium collector. This allows Guardium to monitor data sources such as cloud database implementations that are not suited to running an S-TAP agent.  The Guardium Universal Connector includes support for MongoDB®, MySQL, and Amazon S3, requiring minimal configuration. Users can easily develop plug-ins for other data sources.

In this course, you learn to use the Guardium Universal Connector functionality to monitor activity from a MongoDB data source.
