New IBM Mainframe Users in New Era of Data Protection

leave a comment »

IBM today unveiled IBM Z, the next generation of the IBM mainframe, capable of running more than 12 billion encrypted transactions per day.

The new system also introduces a breakthrough encryption engine that, for the first time, makes it possible to pervasively encrypt data associated with any application, cloud service or database all the time.

IBM Z’s new data encryption capabilities are designed to address the global epidemic of data breaches, a major factor in the $8 trillion cybercrime impact on the global economy by 2022.

Of the more than nine billion data records lost or stolen since 2013, only four percent were encrypted, making the vast majority of such data vulnerable to organized cybercrime rings, state actors and employees misuing access to sensitive information.
