The value of the fast growing class of NoSQL databases is the ability to handle high velocity and volumes of data while enabling greater agility with dynamic schemas. MongoDB gives you those benefits while also providing a rich querying capability and a document model for developer productivity. Many organizations are just getting started with MongoDB, and now is the time to build security into the environment to save time, prevent breaches and avoid compliance violations. This session describes several tips to get started ensuring security of MongoDB data, including real-time activity monitoring capability developed by IBM and validated by 10gen. We will cover protection of data in motion and data at rest to build a defense in depth approach.

In this session you will learn: * How to evaluate the data security and privacy landscape and determine risk factors * New capabilities in MongoDB for authentication and management of data access * New capabilities in IBM InfoSphere Guardium data security and protection solutions to help organizations monitor access to sensitive collections, log details of privileged user activity, detect risky query practices, and much more.
