IBM Security Guardium Ideas Portal

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:


Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea


Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.


Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.


Post an Idea

To post a new idea - click on the "Add a new idea" button and select the appropriate capability area this idea relates to. Do provide requested information to allow us to get a better understanding of your request. If 'Guardium Data Protection' capability is selected, you will be prompted to select the category/product the idea relates to. If you are not sure of the category/product your idea would fall under, then select 'IBM Guardium Other' in the drop down list and proceed from there.

Option to exclude system tables by DB platform from classifier scan

Classifier should by default exclude system tables from the scan. Each DB platform has well defined system tables where users / apps don't touch. In a large environment where you have tens and thousands of DBs to scan, if the classifier automatically excludes the system tables for that DB platform, this can significantly reduce the Classifier runtime. In the Data Source definition, the DB platform is identified and that can be used to automatically exclude platform specific system tables or an option can be given to the user to exclude the well defined and known system tables.

    Hello. We are closing this Idea, because we now have a partnership with 1touch.io and resell their Inventa solution. We are not considering classification enhancements in Guardium Data Protection at this time. Thank you.
