IBM has launched a new mainframe system called the z13s, which is optimized for hybrid cloud computing environments and features outstanding security. According to the company, the z13s can encrypt data twice as fast as previous mainframes could, and IBM is also integrating advanced security solutions into the hardware.
“Fast and secure transaction processing is core to the IBM mainframe, helping clients grow their digital business in a hybrid cloud environment,” said Tom Rosamilia, senior vice president of IBM Systems. “With the new IBM z13s, clients no longer have to choose between security and performance. This speed of secure transactions, coupled with new analytics technology helping to detect malicious activity and integrated IBM Security offerings, will help mid-sized clients grow their organization with peace of mind.”
