Hyper Protect Data Controller content solution

Welcome to the Hyper Protect Data Controller content solution, your homepage for technical resources.

Hyper Protect Data Controller (formerly IBM Data Privacy Passports) encrypts eligible data as it moves throughout the enterprise and beyond. To make this encryption possible, Hyper Protect Data Controller packages the data at a field level into encrypted data objects (EDO) that can move within the enterprise and into distributed and hybrid cloud environments. Access to the data is controlled by a policy that you define. The policy ensures appropriate access to data based on the user’s need to know. Hyper Protect Data Controller encrypts SQL data sources that are accessed using Java Database Connectivity (JDBC). An IBM® z15™ or LinuxONE III system is required.

For complete end-to-end encryption of data, use Hyper Protect Data Controller with IBM pervasive encryption.
