Venafi Adds Encryption Management for IBM z/OSVenafi Adds Encryption Management for IBM z/OS
Supports IBM PKI services to help companies such as Fifth Third Bank reduce system failure, increase efficiency, improve security
January 24, 2008
SANDY, Utah -- Venafi, a provider of systems management for encryption software, today announced the integration of Venafi Server Encryption Manager (SEM) with the IBM (NYSE: IBM) Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Services for z/OS. The new offering enables users of IBM's flagship mainframe operating system to easily deploy, manage and control digital certificates, significantly reducing the risk of system failure from un- or under-managed encryption while assisting efforts to increase operational efficiency, improve data security and facilitate compliance with new industry regulations.
With encryption use on the rise, IBM Systems z customers are seeing a proliferation of certificates in use throughout their organizations, and are using PKI Services for z/OS as a secure, robust certificate authority. The latest release of Venafi SEM will enable these customers to automate the issuance and maintenance of new certificates as well as the discovery of existing certificates; facilitate policy-driven configuration of applications to utilize the certificates; and perform ongoing certificate lifecycle management, monitoring and reporting.
"Managing these certificates within z/OS provides a high level of resilience and security, and with Venafi SEM now integrated with our PKI Services, these companies can now significantly simplify the process," said Jim Porell, Chief Architect, IBM System z Software. "This in turn supercharges PKI Services for z/OS with a potential for a much lower total cost of ownership for internal certificate authority functions."
