By acquiring Guardium at such a significant multiple, IBM has validated the database security, risk and compliance marketplace. However, this acquisition adds yet another point solution to their already disparate database tools portfolio, and such an "rfp check box" architecture approach will not satisfy the integrated platform requirements of serious customers seeking enterprise wide data governance. -John Ottman, President & CEO, Application Security, Inc.
