Not all encryption is equal

Nearly 15 billion records have been breached since 2013 – and only 4% of those were encrypted.(1) Selective data encryption, the traditional method, is costly, resource-intensive and forces risky decisions:

  • What data is encrypted?
  • Where is encryption taking place?
  • Who is responsible for encryption?

With pervasive encryption on IBM Z® you can encrypt all data – on prem and in flight – faster and less expensively than on competing server platforms.


Play the data encryption game

In this challenging cybersecurity threat environment, is your organization’s data protected and compliant?

Imagine your auditor is arriving in 60 seconds. Play the game to see the strength of pervasive encryption.


Get it on IBM z15

Discover why customers, analysts and press are applauding IBM Z – and why encryption everywhere and data privacy on the new IBM z15™ makes the world’s most secure platform even better.


5 ways pervasive encryption is unique

Stop choosing which data to encrypt. Unlike traditional encryption methods, pervasive encryption on IBM Z allows you to accomplish the following:

  1. Encrypt all application, database, and cloud data.
  2. Close the risk of hackers getting key access.
  3. Encrypt 18.4x faster, and encrypt APIs 3x faster, at 5% the cost of x86.
  4. Avoid app changes, plus no impact to SLAs.
  5. View network security with z/OS Encryption Readiness Technology.
