Enterprise Key Management Foundation simplifies encryption

IBM Enterprise Key Management Foundation – Web Edition (EKMF Web) provides efficient and security-rich centralized key management for IBM z/OS data set encryption on IBM Z servers. Using EKMF Web, you can make encryption easy by decoupling it from data classification, enabling you to encrypt data automatically, independent of labor-intensive data classification work. By encrypting data immediately and efficiently at the time it is written, you reduce the risks associated with misclassified or undiscovered sensitive data, gain greater protection of your digital asset, and achieve application-transparent encryption.
