Files and Data
If data is the new currency for businesses, then protecting it is paramount to protecting the organizations using it. With PK Encryption, powered by the merger of Dataguise and PKWARE technologies, businesses can encrypt files and databases, as well as data that is being transmitted, by converting usable data into an unreadable form and providing decryption to those with proper access to reverse the process.
Redefine enterprise data protection with complete administrative control for finding and protecting sensitive data wherever it is stored. PK Encryption protects your business from financial and reputational damage while adding confidence that sensitive information is secure.
Apply protection to the data itself for hundreds of file types so sensitive information stays encrypted no matter where it is stored, shared, or copied.
Encrypt data while preserving the formatting and length of the original data.
Protect data at rest on enterprise servers and automatically encrypt/decrypt as data is read/written across the network.
Encrypt the data while it’s in motion, especially for migration or an ETL process.
Invoke discovery processes that automate encryption workflows.
Provide mechanisms for decrypting and discovering data that is encrypted from uncontrolled third-party applications.
Automate policy-based encryption for sensitive data in TXT, AVRO, Sequence, RC, ORC, JSON, XML file formats, and more.
Sensitive data remains safe even when it’s sent to users outside the organization.
Encrypt data at endpoints such as laptops, desktops, and mobile devices, as well as in large-scale cloud storage systems, database systems, and file servers.
Encrypt sensitive elements in unstructured files and cloud storage objects, and sensitive columns in databases and structured files.
Seamlessly and securely send end-to-end encrypted emails internally and externally while preserving user workflows.
Leveraged Crypto Hardware
Extend IBM Pervasive Encryption® and leverage IBM CPACF, zIIP and zEDC for IBM Z and FIPS-140 compliant PCIe3 Crypto Coprocessor for IBM I.
Easy to Implement
With no endpoint software required, PK Encryption quickly secures files and data without application changes, additional infrastructure, or professional services. And it does all this without disrupting existing workflows.
or Transparent Data
There’s more than one way to encrypt data, and the method for each use case depends heavily on where and when both encryption and decryption need to happen. PK Encryption empowers both persistent encryption that applies protection directly to the data and transparent data encryption for protecting stored data on enterprise servers.
Two Points of View
Encrypt both structured and unstructured data in ways that leave it usable for both protection and analytics. Both types of encryption are available on files, databases, on-premises and cloud object stores, all major cloud players, relational databases, file shares, Hadoop, and more.
If a sender is authorized to transmit sensitive information but forgets to encrypt it beforehand, PK Encryption will not re-route or block. Instead, smart technology encrypts the message for the recipient using a public key or unique Smartkey, limiting the opportunity for data loss prevention.
Our data protection solutions work even better together: Combine PK Encryption with PK Masking algorithms to give users flexibility and choice when they need to share data with “semi-trusted” users either inside the organization or with external partners.
