Files that contain sensitive data, whether stored or being transmitted, need to be protected. SecureZIP® for Linux on System z makes securing these files an effortless task. SecureZIP for Linux on System z extends PKWARE’s industry-leading security and compression product family to this increasingly important platform. The solution greatly reduces transmission times and required storage space while securely protecting data, in transit and at rest. The additional benefit of cross-platform compatibility makes it the ideal solution for exchanging data across the enterprise.
Access encrypted files for audit and recovery purposes with Contingency Processing*Files that have been encrypted must remain accessible to the organization. When files have been encrypted with either digital certificates or passphrases, SecureZIP’s Contingency Processing capabilities ensure that encrypted data is accessible to authorized security professionals for audit or data recovery purposes.
Exchange data securely across desktop, server, midrange, and mainframe systemsLinux on System z is just one of the many platforms that is critical to your organization and your partners. Your business must exchange sensitive data across platforms, and you need a single consistent solution to send secure data while meeting service level agreements, reducing complexity, risk and cost to your operations. SecureZIP for Linux on System z just like SecureZIP on all other supported operating systems, creates ZIP archives that are interoperable across all major platforms to ensure secure data exchange between Windows® desktops, UNIX®/Linux® and Windows servers, i5/OS midrange, and z/OS mainframe operating systems.
Process encrypted data without staging decrypted data to disk SecureZIP for Linux on System z includes Application Integration for decrypting data and streaming it directly into applications without staging it to disk. The functionality eliminates steps otherwise required, improving data protection by ensuring it is never staged to disk in the clear. Equally, applications can stream data directly into SecureZIP for seamless, end-to-end data protection, without staging it to disk in the clear. This feature eliminates security exposures to data by satisfying your auditors with a solution that reduces the potential of exposure to internal security risks.
Improving Network and Application Efficiency SecureZIP for Linux on System z compresses file size to improve application efficiency and reduce data transmission times. Moreover, it encrypts files to ensure data privacy. These tasks can be performed automatically, resulting in productivity gains by eliminating previously required manual steps. Businesses benefit by enabling your staff to focus their time on aligning IT to the company’s requirements rather than working with multiple products to perform similar functions.
Encrypt data using passphrases, X.509 digital certificates, or both SecureZIP for Linux on System z supports both passphrase- and digital certificate-based methods of encryption, offering flexible security that meets varying requirements within business environments. In comparison to passphrases, digital certificates offer higher levels of security, are easier to use, and allow secure communication with larger numbers of recipients. Passphrases provide an alternative when the intended recipient does not have a digital certificate.
Verify documents have not been altered by using digital signatures SecureZIP for Linux on System z enables users to sign files with their unique digital certificates. Recipients of signed files can validate the signature to ensure the sender is who they claim to be and verify that the document has not been altered or tampered with since signing. In addition, digital signatures offer non-repudiation – tracking the signature to the creator of the file.
