IBM® InfoSphere™ Guardium Data Encryption for DB2® and IMS™ Databases (formerly known as IBM Data Encryption for IMS and DB2 Databases) addresses the increased demand for data privacy and security by enabling you to better protect your sensitive and private data for DB2 and IMS.
InfoSphere Guardium Data Encryption for DB2 and IMS Databases delivers the capability to leverage the zSeries® Crypto Hardware to efficiently secure sensitive and private data at the DB2 row level and the IMS segment level.
InfoSphere Guardium Data Encryption benefits include:
A single tool for both your DB2 and IMS databases.
Offering data privacy by encrypting and decrypting data.
The use of the Triple Data Encryption Algorithm (TDEA), which is also known as the Triple Data Encryption Standard (Triple DES); the ANSI Data Encryption Algorithm (DEA), which is also known as the Data Encryption Standard (DES); and the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithms.
Enabling you to leverage the power of storage area networks (SANs) more safely while complying with privacy and security regulations that are in place or that are being enacted worldwide.
Adhering to the existing z/OS security model.
Providing an ISPF front end that allows you to create and customize encryption, external compression, and exit drivers.
Providing exit drivers to permit the execution of compression and encryption at the same exit point to avoid negating any existing compression capability. The compression exit routine invokes System z Crypto Hardware and features that assist high performance and low overhead.
Allowing fast implementation, after an encryption key label has been defined by the security analyst, through the use of standard DB2 and IMS exit routines invoked during database reload.
No application changes.
The rolled up maintenance against the previous release of the product (formerly known as IBM Data Encryption for IMS and DB2 Databases) to this new release.
Designed to operate with all supported DB2 and IMS versions.
