IBM TechXchange 2023 -- Data Security for the cloud!

By POLLY LAU posted Wed August 30, 2023 05:08 PM


Other than AI, one of the most common questions I always get asked when meeting existing or new Guardium customers, is whether or not Guardium does data protection for the cloud.  OF COURSE we do!  AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, IBM Cloud... etc. You name it!  Guardium started the cloud journey for years now, before cloud adoption became popular.  We have agent or agentless methods depending on your preference.  The last I counted, Guardium supports over 70 different data source types, running either on-prem, public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud.  And the list keeps growing!!  POCs with cloud is just a regular day for us.

In the upcoming TechXchange conference 2023, we have a few Guardium hands-on lab sessions focusing on Data Security for Cloud for you.  I will be presenting and co-presenting sessions there.  Here, I have summarized the hands-on lab sessions that we will be covering Guardium for Cloud topics.  Not just interested in Cloud/hands-on?  Don't worry, we have lots of other Guardium sessions at the conference.  Check out our complete list of Guardium sessions from this one-pager!
