System Integrations

This category contains integration scenarios that use IBM Infrastructure Security products.

System Integrations Courses:

Protecting sensitive data from privileged users

This self-paced learning content represents an integration scenario that uses IBM Privileged Identify Manager (PIM), IBM Guardium, IBM Network Protection (XGS), IBM QRadar, and IBM Directory Integrator (IDI). The course includes three videos that depict a database administrator interacting with the system. Watch the videos in the following order:

1)     Testing Initial PIM and Guardium Setup – This video shows the basic functionality of PIM and Guardium without implementing integration between them.

2)     Testing PIM and Guardium Integration – This video shows the benefits of integrating PIM and Guardium. There is no direct integration path between the two products. QRadar and IDI are used to bridge integration gaps between PIM and Guardium.

3)     Testing a Complete Integration Solution– This video shows a fully integrated security solution. It includes the XGS appliance that terminates any existing connection from the database administrator workstation to the database server.

This course also includes an Integration Guide that documents the configuration steps necessary to integrate the products. It also includes the file that contains the custom files, including developed IDI assembly lines, necessary to successfully implement this integration scenario.

Using IBM Security products to manage user activity on the network

IBM Security products can be used to manage user activity on the network. This course focuses on using IBM XGS, Identity Manager, and Directory Integrator to control user access.

Using IBM X-Force Deep Packet Inspection in the IBM Security Access Manager Appliance

This course demonstrates how IBM X-Force PAM engine works in IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM) appliance. The course is the how-to lab guide with the set of virtual machines that students can explore on they own time.

Introduction to the IBM Security Immune System

The IBM Security Immune System looks at a security portfolio in an organized fashion - as an integrated framework of security capabilities that transmits and ingests vital security data to help gain visibility, understand, and prioritize threats, and coordinate multiple layers of defense. At its core, the system automates policies and block threats - just as the human immune system can assess and identify a virus and then trigger an immune response.
