Hi,
 
They are ok but...if you are looking for a security and auditing type of solution for your DB with a much better conception , performance and abilities I would really recommend you to go for Imperva.   www.imperva.com

See posting from Guardium user at: http://www.dbasupport.com/forums/showthread.php?p=244199#post244199
 
Here's an extract from that post:  "We have been using Guardium SQL Guard database security solution for nearly 6 months and before deciding on it, we spend several weeks to test Guardium and others (Imperva IPS and Oracle DB vault beta) on production environment. If you are looking for a real-time monitoring solution to take control over whats going on your db servers then with my experience I can say that Guardium is the most complete and secure solution you can get."
 
"We also tested Imperva IPS (they call it SecureSphere Database Security & Monitoring GW but, it was simply a basic IPS which seemed to me that they moved from IPS world to run away from IPS competition to a more virgin area)."
 
The key difference between the two products is in their architectures:  the Guardium architecture was designed to support both real-time network inspection/parsing of SQL traffic AND continuous fine-grained database auditing (which requires a scalable data management architecture, along with lots of automated reporting features).  IDS/IPS systems like Imperva were never designed to efficiently store and manage massive amounts of database transactions, and then easily slice-and-dice the data to create detailed reports for SOX and PCI auditors, or use data mining tools to perform forensics on the audit trail.
 
Full disclosure: I am a Guardium employee.
