Guardium Courses (29):
In this Tech Talk, Shay Harel discusses several new IBM Guardium 10.6 enhancements that improve usability, core functionality and enable greater extensibility to new types of data environments. In the area of usability, there is a new policy builder user interface, as well as easier to use query report builder. There are new monitoring capabilities for Database as a Service. In addition, Guardium performance has been enhanced. Vulnerability assessment has improved accuracy and scan granularity. File access management with NAS and SharePoint enables consistent data protection across unstructured as well as structured data.
In IBM Guardium 10.6, the new query-report builder combines the legacy report and query builders into a simplified workflow, where each query represents one corresponding report. In this video, you will learn about and a see a demo of this new feature.
Load balancing automatically allocates managed units to S-TAP agents
when new S-TAPs are installed and during fail-over when a managed unit
is unavailable. The load balancing application also dynamically
re-balances loaded or busy managed units by relocating S-TAP agents to
less-loaded managed units. These topics are discussed in this Open Mic.
- Data-centric security approach
- Partnership with STEALTHbits
- Data Protection for Files, NAS, and SharePoint
- File Discovery, Entitlement, and Classification (FDEC)
- File Activity Monitoring (FAM)
New in IBM Guardium 10.6, alerts are sent when the system predicts that a
DB size or files on disk (/var) will reach 50% in the next 14 days.
Alerts detail the predicted size and the largest tables or files. Alerts
are also shown in the deployment health dashboard of the central
manager. In this course, you will see a quick overview of this feature
and then a deeper dive into the function and its architecture.
This Open Mic covered different aspects of IBM Guardium certificates,
including the prerequisite for installing certificates, how to create
request certificates, converting certificates in the format that
Guardium supports, and the hierarchy of certificates.
Guardium 10.5 includes an ecosystem to extend and enhance your current Guardium deployment with new capabilities. Guardium apps are the centerpiece of the ecosystem, allowing you to augment and enrich your current Guardium system. You can create your own Guardium apps or download and install shared apps created by IBM, business partners, or other Guardium customers.
In this tech talk, John Haldeman from Information Insights will share his experiences using the Guardium Ecosystem and demonstrate how to:
- Create a Guardium app using the Software Development Kit (SDK)
- Deploy your app on your Guardium appliance
- Share your app on the IBM Guardium App Exchange
In this Open Mic video, Avi Walerius from Guardium Technical Support
discusses different aspects of appliance patches: differences between
patch types, advice on the health check patch, and best practices for
installing GPU patches.
The Guardium Installation Manager (GIM) allows you to install, upgrade, and manage agents on individual servers or groups of servers. In this course, you will learn about GIM deployment and usage, and includes GIM reports, registration and authentication, and troubleshooting. This is Part 2 of a two-part series.
Global enterprises are discovering the rigorous task of becoming GDPR compliant. IBM Security Guardium Analyzer can help with your GDPR impact assessment plan by answering the question of "Where is my GDPR- relevant data?" It enables you to efficiently identify risk associated with personal and sensitive personal data that falls under the GDPR.
- Analyze on-prem and cloud-based databases to find GDPR relevant data
- Use next generation data classification and vulnerability scanning
- Surface data exposures through dynamic dashboards; providing information, such as, the number of databases affected, severity breakdown, and geographic breakdown
- Take steps to minimize risk based on the information provided
There is a new and improved policy builder user interface in IBM Guardium 10.6. This video provides a detailed description and demo of the changes.
In this video, you will learn some tips and tricks for keeping your Windows S-TAP up and running with fewer issues. You will investigate the following parameters and settings:
- SOFTWARE_TAP_HOST or TAP_IP
The Guardium Installation Manager (GIM) allows you to install, upgrade, and manage agents on individual servers or groups of servers. In this course, you will learn about GIM Agent installation planning, installation steps and validation, and installation troubleshooting. This is Part 1 of a two-part series.

This IBM Guardium Open Mic discusses the following topics:
- How to tell if KTAP will install directly on a kernel version? (i.e how to use ktaposmatch)
- Options to build KTAP for unlisted kernel versions (flex_loading, and custom ktap build), including examples of each case, with GIM and non-GIM installs.
During this Open Mic session, Carolina Leme from Guardium Level 2 support discusses user management and roles and responsibilities. The bookmarks in the video will take you to the following topics:
- Administrator responsibilities

- CLI access
- Roles and permissions
This Open Mic Live session was originally broadcast from Think 2018 19-March-2018
John Adams from Guardium Technical Support delivers this Open Mic LIVE at the 2018 Think conference. Part fire extinguisher, part lifejacket, and part how to avoid getting burned in the first place, the information in this Open Mic will help keep you out of trouble and possibly rescue you in the case of full appliance issues.Agenda:
- First Response
