Privacy and security as never before

Is your IT infrastructure able to meet new privacy requirements? Legislation like the European Union’s GDPR, California’s CCPA, and Japan’s APPI has far-reaching effects on organizations like yours. And in a recent IBM-sponsored Harris Poll, 53% of consumers say that how a company protects their privacy is more important than the quality of products and services.

Why IBM Z for enterprise security

Meet the secure platform with industry-first data privacy

The new IBM z15™ is designed to deliver the highest security and to keep data private and encrypted wherever it goes. With encryption on IBM Z® you can prevent breaches 8.4X more effectively, 93% cheaper and 81% faster than competing platforms.¹
