PKWARE's SecureZIP leverages the System z hardware and software facilities, regardless of the hardware features enabled in a specific installation. Secured archives (ZIP files) can be used not only on the platform they were created on, but also any platform that SecureZIP runs on. In addition, SecureZIP maximizes the investment made by customers in hardware cryptography by utilizing the least expensive processor capabilities within a system, while maintaining the data security and portability that the standard ZIP file format provides. As a result of the flexible application of PKWARE's SecureZIP Mainframe products, leveraging IBM's ICSF will enable organizations to take advantage of significant cost and resource savings when encrypting data.
