nCipher Makes Announcement

nCipher announces its keyAuthority enterprise key management suite now supports IBM System i platforms

CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- nCipher plc (LSE: NCH), a global leader in protecting critical enterprise data, announces its keyAuthority™ enterprise key management suite now supports IBM System i platforms (AS/400). Through a partnership with Patrick Townsend & Associates, a leading software development and consulting firm, nCipher can deliver the most comprehensive general purpose key management solution on the market.

Encrypting sensitive data has become a priority for many large organizations, especially since the Payment Card Industry (PCI) released its requirements for protecting credit card numbers. PCI requires not only that companies store credit card data in an unreadable form, but also that they fully document and implement key management processes and procedures for the secure generation, distribution, storage, archiving, replacement and retirement of all keys used to encrypt credit card numbers. Taking advantage of encryption has always been a particular challenge on platforms such as System i where there has been a reliance on manual techniques for the management of cryptographic keys. nCipher’s centralized key management system solves this problem and removes the barrier to the deployment of encryption on these types of transactional systems and distributed networks.
