New IBM Guardium Tool Detects Sensitive Data for GDPR Compliance
Though the deadline for GDPR compliance has already passed, there are still many organizations that are not compliant, which is why IBM wants to help with a new tool to identify private information. IBM is set to announce the release of its new Guardium Analyzer security tool on June 5 to help organizations identify and protect sensitive personal information that might be subject to the European Union's (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). GDPR is all about keeping personal end-user information private, but not all organizations always know where sensitive information is stored within their organization. The new Guardium Analyzer tool is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering designed to identify and classify personal information that an organization is storing within databases. "IBM Security Guardium Analyzer is a new stand-alone service that is built specifically for GDPR compliance, and is the first software-as-a-service offering in the Guardium data security and protection portfolio," Leslie Wiggins, Product Manager at IBM Data Security, told eWEEK. "While it is a completely new product, we applied best practices from our existing data security portfolio during the development of the service." GDPR enforcement officially began on May 25, though an IBM study released on May 6 reported that the majority of organizations would not be compliant with the deadline. Wiggins commented that despite the deadline, many companies are still fairly early on in their journey to GDPR compliance.
