Privacy and security as never before

While flexibility, responsiveness and cost are fueling your journey to cloud, there are security risks. According Ponemon research sponsored by Opus, 59 percent of companies surveyed experienced a data breach caused by a third party.¹

Now you can protect of your critical applications and sensitive data, even in hybrid clouds, with the innovative data privacy, security, and cyber resiliency capabilities found on IBM Z.

Breaches destroy trust: 78% would not return to a business.(1)


Breaches are common: Over 6 million records are lost or stolen daily.(2)

100 percent

Breaches seek gaps: 100% encryption is the only way to close them.
