Takeaway

  • With the IBM z14 and pervasive encryption—where all data is encrypted—clients can encrypt data at scale without having to change their applications.
  • Pervasive encryption decouples the process of identification and classification from encryption because all data can be encrypted, thereby reducing the risk of unidentified or misclassified data. Protecting only the data required to achieve compliance should be viewed as a minimum threshold, not a best practice.
  • The new IBM Z platform uses protected keys that allow for on-chip cryptographic acceleration using encryption keys that are protected by a tamper-responding hardware security module.
  • With this solution, IBM overcomes traditional challenges to make encryption affordable and scalable without impacting service-level agreements.
