Tech titan IBM has announced the IBM z15, a new enterprise platform that allows clients to get access to data via policy-based controls, with an industry-first capability to revoke access to data across the hybrid cloud.
The movement of data between partners and third parties is often the root cause of data breaches. In fact, 60 percent of businesses reported they suffered a data breach caused by a vendor or third party in 20181. With the growing adoption of hybrid multicloud environments, the importance of maintaining data security and privacy only grows more acute and challenging.
The IBM z15 culminates four years of development with over 3,000 IBM Z patents issued or in process and represents a collaboration with input from over 100 companies. Key z15 innovations from these investments across IBM systems and research include:
A new IBM-commissioned study conducted by The Harris Poll found that 64 percent of all consumers have opted not to work with a business out of concerns of whether they could keep their data secure.
However, that same study found 76 percent of respondents would be more willing to share personal information if there was a way to fully take back and retrieve that data at any time.
With z15, pervasive encryption is designed to extend across the enterprise enforcing data privacy by policy even when it leaves the platform. With this industry-first capability, clients can offer new services and features that give their consumers stronger control over how their personal data is used.
