IBM Optim Solutions for Data Privacy and Security
Data is undoubtedly one of the most valuable assets for an organization. And like any other asset, efficiently
managing and leveraging data is crucial to the success of a business. However, digitization and consequently
growing volumes of data have made data management a highly challenging affair. And in addition to this, global
mandates concerning data privacy and security make things increasingly complex. While organizations have a
growing need to manage data, they also have the necessity to protect data and ensure compliance with various
laws governing data privacy and security.
Several incidents of cyber attack and data breach have been reported in the recent past, and with more and more
companies moving to digital data, these threats are only bound to increase. While organizations need solutions to
seamlessly manage data, they also need solutions to protect all forms of data being generated every day. But
adopting multiple solutions for data management, data protection and privacy can turn out to be ineffective and
highly expensive. Organizations today therefore need an integrated data management solution that can not only
manage data but also protect data from a growing number of threats. IBM Optim is one of the leading solutions in
the market offering this capability.
Designed to protect enterprise data from all possible threats, IBM Optim provides just what organizations need in
the current scenario- a robust solution that combines data management and protection. IBM Optim enables
enterprises to safeguard structured as well as unstructured data in both production and non-production
environments. It also monitors database access on a continuous basis by implementing appropriate controls, and
audits regularly to ensure compliance at all times.
IBM Optim Solution protects data in an efficient manner by identifying and defining sensitive data, understanding
where sensitive data resides in the organization, reviewing the existing security policies, and masking and
encrypting data for protection against possible threats. By doing this IBM Optim not only protects the privacy and
security of confidential customer and employee data but also ensures that all requirements for complying with
local, state, national, international, and industry-based privacy regulations are fully met.
It is important for enterprises to remember that protecting customer and employee data is not just a good
business practice anymore. It is now a mandatory requirement. Businesses should therefore realize the need to
safeguard information in today’s context. And one of the most effective ways to ensure data security and privacy
while also efficiently managing data is to simply adopt IBM Optim.
