Ultimate Security



 
 

It’s no mystery to IBMers why 97 of the top 100 worldwide banks leverage our mainframe technology to secure sensitive financial information: System z has the highest security rating/classification for any commercially-available server and is the only server to obtain the EAL5+ security classification.1

But for those who remain skeptical or question the value of a mainframe system environment, we continue to improve the security and reliability of System z and demonstrate why z is the ultimate security platform.

To add to our series of security posts we began last week, we have worked with colleagues from across IBM to find new and relevant perspectives on mainframe security issues and shared them below with short descriptions.

Editor’s Note: This blog post is part of a series on IT security we are running in December 2012 to help readers understand key aspects of security, including reputational risk, cloud security, and the role of hardware, software and services in security solutions.

We encourage you to read the other posts in our series, listed below:
