18 Jul IBM Unveils Z Mainframe That Can Encrypt Massive Amounts of Data
Last Monday, IBM introduced the new Z mainframe computer as their bid in the race for data security and protection. It features improved streamlined data encryption to address concerns of data breach.
Research conducted by IBM showed that over 4 billion data files have been stolen in 2016 alone, with only 4% of the data being encrypted. They also predicted the cost of data breaches on the global economy by 2022, which will be roughly be around $8 trillion.
IBM aims to eliminate the need for businesses to encrypt their own records. It also makes it safer for customers who regularly transact with companies that require personal information.
The IBM Z mainframe can efficiently run more than 12 billion encryptions every day. This development in data storage and protection will aid companies in arranging their files, as well as follow General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) without problems.
