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.

Please note: The purpose of the Ideas Portal is to tap the creativity of the Guardium Data Protection community so that we can enhance the product for everyone! If you need to report a defect or get help, please use our normal support channel. Click here to open a support ticket.

ServiceNow plug-in (workflow/dashboards) integration with Vulnerability Assessment

Working w. large US Telco on ServiceNow requirements - the IBM Sales Exec has shared that they are running a current solution that has a certified ServiceNow plug-in (accessible from ServiceNow marketplace)

We are working to try to get a discovery/garage framing to clarify priority/phases, what can be done by services, what customer expects to have on IBM supported roadmap,etc.

Customer desires similar capabilities - these would include:

  • Dashboards and Reports (similar to what is in Guardium today)

  • Example workflow for most common remediation/collaboration

  • Additional business meta data that helps provide context to the technical dataSource with the business (i.e. data owner, appteam using, remediation team - which may be different per group of databases)

  • Easily handle exceptions from ServiceNow to update Guardium for future scans (i.e. do not report failure if excpetion date from ServiceNow)

  • Visibility into a large group of databases of what scans failed (due to network or server being offline) and have it automatically be rescheduled) - possibly from ServiceNow

  • Visibility into tests that have Passed/Failed/NotApp,etc. in ServiceNow (with potential click-open ticket from report that is in serviceNow report that opens problem/incident)

  • ?possibly others

    From what I can tell the SNOW plugin for Vulnerability integration does not support the latest version of SNOW (Tokyo). Is there a plan to update the plugin?
