What we offer

News headlines about the increasing frequency of stolen information and identity theft have focused awareness on data security and privacy breaches—and their consequences. In response to this issue, regulations have been enacted around the world.

The number and variety of regulatory mandates are numerous, and they affect organizations around the globe. Some of the most prevalent mandates include: Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), and the EU Data Privacy Directive. Along with the rising number of regulatory mandates is the increased pressure to show immediate compliance.

Enterprises are under tremendous time pressure and need to show immediate progress to the business and shareholders, or face reputation damage and stiff financial penalties. This pressure is exacerbated by new computing models such as virtualization and cloud computing. As organizations are aggressively adopting these new models, concerns about data security and privacy are very prevalent.

Organizations must take a holistic approach to protecting their information across the enterprise in physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures by:

IBM InfoSphere Optim and InfoSphere Guardium solutions for data security and privacy protect diverse data types across different locations throughout the enterprise, including the protection of structured and unstructured data in both production and non-production (development, test and training) environments. Such an approach can help focus limited resources without added processes or increased complexity. A holistic approach also helps organizations to demonstrate compliance without interrupting critical business processes or daily operations.

IBM InfoSphere solutions for data security and privacy support heterogeneous enterprise environments including all major databases, custom applications, ERP solutions and operating platforms.

IBM InfoSphere Data Architect

IBM InfoSphere Data Architect is a collaborative data design solution that helps you discover, model, relate, and standardize diverse and distributed data assets.

With InfoSphere Data Architect, you can discover, model, visualize, relate, and standardize diverse and distributed data assets across your enterprise.

  • Increase efficiency and reduce time-to-market through increased understanding of current data assets.
  • Simplify and accelerate data and integration design for Business Intelligence, Master Data Management and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) initiatives.
  • Leverage data model value across the data lifecycle to promote cross-lifecycle, cross-role and cross-organization collaboration and to align process service, application, and data architecture.
  • Dimensional Modeling - Design dimensional models to reduce development time for InfoSphere Data Warehouse and Cognos BI reporting.
IBM InfoSphere Discovery

IBM InfoSphere Discovery accelerates information centric project deployment and reduces risk by creating a 360º view of data relationships across heterogeneous sources.

Using patented capabilities, InfoSphere Discovery identifies and documents what data you have, where it is located and how it's linked across systems by intelligently capturing relationships and determining applied transformations and business rules.

  • Discover hidden data relationships to define "business objects" (logical groupings of data)
  • Automate the detection of sensitive data
  • Reverse engineering transformation logic
  • Prototype data consolidation rules for new projects
  • Use heuristics and sophisticated algorithms that automate an otherwise time consuming manual process.
  • Support for source data discovery of Unicode compliant sources
  • Source data support for a wide range of enterprise data sources including relational databases and any structured data source that can be represented in a text file format such as hierarchical database
  • Integration with IBM InfoSphere Information Server and IBM InfoSphere Optim solutions
  • Operating systems supported: Linux, Windows, z/OS
IBM InfoSphere Optim

InfoSphere Optim Data Management solutions manage data from requirements to retirement. Boost performance, empower collaboration, and improve governance across applications, databases and platforms.

These are the InfoSphere Optim solutions.

IBM InfoSphere Guardium

IBM InfoSphere Guardium provides the simplest, most robust solution for assuring the privacy and integrity of trusted information in your data center (SAP, PeopleSoft, Cognos, Siebel, etc.) and reducing costs by automating the entire compliance auditing process in heterogeneous environments.

Deploy centralized and standardized controls for real-time database security and monitoring, fine-grained database auditing, automated compliance reporting, data-level access control, database vulnerability management and auto-discovery of sensitive data.

These are the InfoSphere Guardium solutions.

  • Monitor Privileged Users
    Detect or block malicious or unapproved activity by DBAs, developers and outsourced personnel without relying on native logs, triggers or other DBMS-resident mechanisms.
  • Audit and Validate Compliance
    Simplify SOX, PCI-DSS, and Data Privacy processes with pre-configured reports and automated oversight workflows (electronic sign-offs, escalations, etc.).
  • Protect Data Privacy
    Develop a holistic approach to data protection to ensure compliance and reduce costs
