Performance Improvements and a Streamlined Transition Away
from McAfee E-Business Server

SecureZIP eBusiness Edition provides upgraded performance, reduced processing times and expanded capabilities for organizations as they transition away from McAfee’s E-Business Server. SecureZIP eBusiness Edition is a straightforward, drop-in replacement for McAfee E-Business Server. SecureZIP eBusiness Edition is the only replacement that provides a range of options for data-centric security and native use on various mainframe and server environments.

SecureZIP eBusiness Edition Features

  • Compared with McAfee E-Business Server, SecureZIP eBusiness Edition software enables: 73% faster elapsed encryption time and 82% faster elapsed decryption time as well as 92% less CPU encryption time and 73% less CPU decryption time*
  • Complements existing security investments: Can be used with passphrase, public/private key or OpenPGP encryption, as well as digital signatures
  • OpenPGP support: Easily share data with business partners regardless of the partners' data security preference or computing platform
  • Create PGP keys: Make OpenPGP keys using a Java application
  • Exchanges files with other platforms without disrupting existing processes: Streamlines the EBCDIC/ASCII conversion process
  • Includes digital signing/authentication capabilities
  • Passphrase-based strong encryption: Uses 3DES or AES (128-, 192-, or 256-bit) algorithms to encrypt and protect your data
  • Application Integration: Decrypt data and stream it directly to the application without staging decrypted data to disk. After the application completes processing, it streams the data to SecureZIP eBusiness Edition for encryption - once again, unprotected data is never staged to disk
  • Maintains control of data: Contingency key provides administrative access to any processed data
  • System integration: Directly write to, and read from, UNIX/Linux and Windows file systems
  • zIIP support: Offload processing to IBM z Integrated Information Processors (zIIP) to free up general computing capacity and lower overall total cost of computing for select workloads
  • Works across all major enterprise computing platforms: Interoperability with IBM® System i ®, UNIX®/Linux® and Windows® servers, and Windows desktops ensures files can be shared across diverse environments
  • Reduce file size up to 95% ZIP compression allows you to reduce file size up to 95%, saving time and valuable system resources

Migrating from McAfee E-Business Server to SecureZIP eBusiness Edition is easy.

  • No software changes are required for your partners/customers
  • Make and manage OpenPGP keys and keyring files
  • Encrypt, decrypt and sign using the OpenPGP format, just like McAfee E-Business Server
  • Use existing keyrings that were used with McAfee E-Business Server

Smart Encryption solutions for Data Loss Prevention – SecureZIP for DLP

SecureZIP encryption and interoperability maintain easy-to-use security while Data Loss Prevention (DLP) operations are running. When DLP software flags a potential risk, SecureZIP adds encryption to the at-risk data and ensures no data is exposed. Portability and encryption steps enable data armoring across platforms and policies. The SecureZIP for DLP solution works with hardware or developer environments, solidifying protection of data shared in processes ranging from the mainframe batch jobs to employee email attachments.

SecureZIP for DLP features include ...

  • Security that works with the information flow: SecureZIP encryption as a means to remediate files in a DLP inspection doesn't stop or break the process flow for information. Encryption and decryption steps are streamlined, unlike those found in blocking, quarantining or deletion methods.
  • Flexibility with DLP practices: The SecureZIP solution bridges security gaps in a variety of Data Loss Prevention programs and practices. As part of either an in-house development or a hardware add-on, SecureZIP security works with user, administrator and automated remediation methods.
  • Protection regardless of platform: Smart Encryption practices mean interoperable data protection throughout the DLP process, and in every other step along the sharing, storage and access paths of business information.
  • Certificates and keys working in the background: SecureZIP for DLP relies on encryption keys to lock and unlock access to files. The solution supports digital certificates, as part of its vetted, open standards-based background.
  • Control through a master key: A contingency key enables recovery of all encrypted data by approved administrators.
