Share Article

New encryption option provides mainframe data security and compression. Also supports regulatory compliance.

Providing a full suite of security, data encryption, compliance and mainframe compression, Software Diversified Services (SDS) now offers PGP® data encryption for IBM mainframes.

An industry standard when it comes to encryption, PGP Command Line 9 for IBM Mainframes integrates seamlessly into existing mainframe processes while providing both compression and encryption for data at rest, in transmission and in archives. It is cost-effective, ensures data authenticity and allows for rapid automation of security policies.

"Our new mainframe PGP option for ABMs simply means that companies can save time, money and infrastructure while meeting the needs of their business partners as well as industry regulations," said Jim Lampi, Vice President of Software Diversified Services. "PGP Command Line protects business-critical data with ease and with little impact on existing systems."

While ensuring the confidentiality of sensitive data, the mainframe PGP Command Line automatically encrypts and decrypts data. In addition, it significantly compresses data, reducing the impact on a company's systems: Flat files compress by as much as 90 percent, while binary files compress to about half their original size.

PGP Command Line meets the U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS), and PGP encryption is one of two standards recommended for email security by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
