IBM plans to integrate Polar Security’s DSPM technology within its Guardium family of leading data security products. With the integration of Polar Security’s DSPM technology, IBM Security® Guardium will provide security teams with a data security platform that spans all data types across all storage locations – SaaS, on premise and in public cloud infrastructure.
