Massive amounts of data move as messages between applications, systems and services at any given time. If an application isn’t ready or if there’s a service interruption, messages and transactions can be lost or duplicated, costing businesses time and money to make things right.
IBM has expertly refined IBM MQ over 25 years on the market. With MQ, if a message can’t be delivered immediately, it’s secured in a queue, where it waits until delivery is assured. Where competitors may deliver messages twice or not at all, MQ moves data, including file data, once — and once only. Never lose a message with MQ.
Acting as a messaging center between applications on varied platforms, MQ connects virtually everything wherever it is, reducing integration time and cost, and reliably moving messages.
Designed for security — with built-in high availability and disaster recovery, MQ protects data at rest, in-flight and in-memory through fine-grained authentication and powerful data encryption.
Because MQ handles connection and message retries for you, it frees developers to spend time on more critical initiatives. It also easily scales to seamlessly manage changes in transaction volumes.
Leading enterprise messaging for mission-critical business applications
The reliable once-and-once-only delivery of MQ lets you feel confident that messages will go through. Others use at-least-once or at-most-once delivery, which can mean duplicate or lost messages.
MQ acts as a shock absorber between applications in asynchronous messaging environments. If there’s network or application disruption, it holds messages in queues until everything is running.
For end-to-end encryption, MQ encrypts at the message level, as well as using transport level security (TLS), helping protect you from both the internal and external threat.
What’s new with MQ V9.2
Simplified, smart management
Automatically balance and rebalance your workload, combine HA and DR, control storage limits, explore our new UI, and gain entitlement to the IBM® Aspera® fasp.io. Gateway.
Benefit from updates in TLS 1.3, and dynamically select the cipherspecs that apply. Using AMS? We have Java keystore protection, PKCS#11 Java support, and encryption between queue managers (z/OS® only).
With the average cost of a data breach hitting USD 3.86 million globally⁹, businesses that move a lot of highly sensitive information need the powerful features of MQ Advanced. Where MQ protects data on the move, MQ Advanced extends those security features to protect data on the move and at rest — keeping messages encrypted while they’re stored in queues. It also lets you harness simple yet powerful high availability to protect data from unplanned outages. And it offers advanced blockchain coordination and file transfer capabilities that can help you modernize your infrastructure.
With custom code designed for IBM z/OS®, IBM MQ is the best way to transfer data on the mainframe. Get the stability, reliability and security-rich messaging that can be used as the foundation of your business.
