PGP encryption for mainframes
PGP Corporation announced a new version of PGP Command Line for IBM zSeries mainframes that now runs natively on the z/OS operating system. Ã‚Â This latest release of PGP Command Line builds on PGP Corporation’s broad platform and operating systems support, enabling businesses to automatically exchange encrypted data with business partners, customers and internal organizations, and easily integrate encryption scripts into batch, networking and back-up processes.Ã‚Â
There are many new and legacy applications running on mainframes that output and process data that must be encrypted.Ã‚Â With this release of PGP Command Line, organizations now have the flexibility to protect data wherever it is created or stored on mainframes, eliminating the need to move unencrypted data in order to have it encrypted on another system. Ã‚Â Using PGP Command Line, customers are able to easily facilitate secure transfers to and from both mainframe and non-mainframe environments. PGP Command Line also provides patented PGP Additional Decryption Key (ADK) technology, enabling corporate access to encrypted data in the event of key loss or when required by policy.Ã‚Â
Additionally, PGP Command Line leverages existing infrastructures with support for OpenPGP and X.509 key formats, encryption, digital signing, compression, and secure wiping capabilities. Ã‚Â As part of the award-winning PGP Encryption Platform, users of PGP Command Line can use the same PGP encryption technology trusted by millions of users worldwide, to mitigate the security risks of “data in motion” and “data at rest,” and adhere to government compliance and industry regulations.
PGP Command Line for IBM System zSeries Mainframes is generally available today through the PGP global network of resellers.Ã‚Â Pricing for PGP Command Line starts at $10,000 per system.
