The security of sensitive information has emerged as a critical concern for organizations across the globe, especially in an era dominated by digital transformation. With IBM Z handling 70% of global production workloads, its role in managing a vast majority of the world’s sensitive data underscores the significant challenge of protecting this information beyond its initial secure storage. This reliance on IBM Z systems not only highlights their importance in data processing infrastructure but also the magnitude of responsibility in safeguarding data from potential threats as it moves beyond the mainframe’s secure confines.
As data moves through various networks and platforms in distributed environments, its vulnerability to unauthorized access and potential breaches increases. Movement into a less secure, distributed ecosystem introduces a myriad of security challenges exposing vulnerabilities. PK Encrypt offers persistent encryption which offers robust, continuous protection of sensitive information, irrespective of its location or lifecycle stage, addressing the critical need for a security solution that adapts to the evolving landscape of digital threats.
