Stay out of data breach headlines

The data breach threat is real. A single attack costs an average of $3.86 million and can damage your reputation.

Breaches destroy trust

78% of customers would not return to a business after a data breach.(1)

Breaches are likely

Over 5 million records are lost or stolen daily.(2)

Breaches seek gaps

100% encryption is the only sure way to close them all.

Protect your data

Secure your data – for less cost, time and effort than competing platforms.


IBM Z seamlessly encrypts 100% of application, cloud service and database data.

IBM Z is 8.4x more effective than x86 at preventing security breaches.


Security on IBM Z is 93% cheaper and 81% faster than on competing platforms.(3)

Keep your data secure

Introducing a better, easier way to protect your data:

  • Pervasively encrypt 100% of application, cloud service and database data
  • Deploy containers in a tamper-proof environment, encrypted and protected from internal and external threats
  • Lower your security risk to just 5% of competing solutions

Pervasive encryption

Build an impenetrable wall against attacks and simplify compliance. z14 encryption runs 18.4x faster at 1/20 the cost of alternatives.(4)
