IBM  today announced the world’s most powerful transaction system named IBM Z, which can run more than 12 billion encrypted transactions daily. The encryption mechanism is necessary to protect your data from unauthorized users, i.e., hackers.  Therefore, IBM provides users with a simple alternative to protect their data that is encrypted everything. The latest Z mainframe system mechanically encrypts all the data that is related to an app or service. According to IBM, conventional systems based on x86 processors only encrypt “limited slices” of information, while the new Z has enough power (18 times more, in fact) to lock everything down as a matter of course.

This new mechanism also destroys its own encryption keys when the system is intervened by unauthorized users and immediately encrypts the programming interfaces that tie apps and services together. The Z consists of thrice the memory (a huge 32 TB), three times faster input/output, and a much lower lag when talking to a storage area network. To increase the overall security of the system, hardware should alter many more transactions.

Even though Z is the best of IBM to provide security but that’s not enough, as it has no control over hackers from accessing the user’s data. But, this does not mean that your data is not safe, as it prevents hackers from reading the data. Still, there is a possibility that hackers would find a way out to decrypt the encrypted data.

However, IBM took a new step to introduce a technology that supports users. This technology relieves the user from fear of data being accessed by the unauthorized users as your data will always be encrypted.
