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 breach.(1)
  • Breaches are common: Over 6.4 million records are lost or stolen daily.(2)
  • Breaches seek gaps: 100% encryption is the only sure way to close them all.

What IBM Z offers

The new standard for data privacy and security in a hybrid cloud world

Open architectures drive innovation, but sharing data across ecosystems can be a risky business: 60 percent of companies experienced a data breach caused by a third party.

The new IBM Z® system provides the highest level of data privacy, security and resiliency for your mission-critical applications and extends it across your hybrid multicloud environment.

Technologies to keep your data secure

There’s a better, easier way to protect your data:

  • Encrypt all of application, cloud service and database data.
  • Deploy containers in a tamper-proof environment that is 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)
