With IBM z14, you can now encrypt everything. Pervasive encryption enables you to encrypt data at the database, data set and disk level, with no changes to applications. Each app will have an internal encryption-decryption mechanism, allowing you to apply cryptography without altering the app itself. So, the sensitive data basically does not have a target on its back.
We’re living in a multicloud world. Today, 85 percent of businesses rely on multiple clouds to meet their IT needs, with 71 percent using more than three. What this means in practice for enterprise clients is that they have multiple architectures in place. This may be fine for “tried and true” workloads–like credit card processing […]
In 2018, the average cost of a data security breach approached $3.9 million. But organizations that fully deployed security automation saved over $1.5 million per breach. These metrics demonstrate the value of effective data protection and security solutions, and underscore the significance of recent data security-related announcements from IBM. “ESG’s research clearly shows that data […]
In today’s digital world, data is the primary asset for most organizations. Access to data and changes of the data need to be restricted to authorized persons, devices or processes. IT devices need to be protected from the execution of non-authorized code as well as from denial of service attacks. The cost of data breaches […]
