IBM unveils powerful new encryption mainframe

Monday 17 July 2017 | 09:46 CET | News
IBM has unveiled IBM Z, a mainframe capable of running more than 12 billion encrypted transactions per day. The new system also introduces a new encryption engine that the company says will, for the first time, make it possible to pervasively encrypt data associated with any application, cloud service or database all the time. The system's advanced cryptographic capability can now extend across any data, network, external device or entire application – such as the IBM Cloud Blockchain service – with no application changes and no impact on business service level agreements.
