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
