October 2009 – SecureZIP ensures that virtually any type of sensitive data kept in file, folder, or e-mail format is protected while the data is in motion, in use, or at rest. Corporate or personal information assets are sealed in secured virtual containers and remain protected inside and outside of the corporate network or computing cloud.
SecureZIP offers both security and compression that protects data wherever it travels.
- Zips and unzips files and folders resulting in greatly reduced transmission times and storage requirements.
- Effective policy management tools and user-centric design offers transparency and ease of use, while enabling appropriate organizational security controls.
- Information is available to authorized individuals but is rendered useless to hackers or thieves.
With Application Integration, data can be streamed directly in and out of applications. Without Application Integration, the zip file would be extracted and written to disk as a data file before it can be read by an application. Using Application Integration, this step is eliminated, improving operational efficiency by reducing the number of steps needed to process data.
SecureZIP for z/OS with Application Integration decrypts data and streams it directly to the application without staging decrypted data to disk. After the application completes processing, it streams the data to SecureZIP for encryption – once again, unprotected data is never staged to disk.
Most other job processes, unlike SecureZIP Application Integration, require data to be decrypted and staged, unprotected, in order for the application to access it when needed. Once data processing is complete, the application again stages the data to disk, leaving it unprotected.
