Discover And Protect Sensitive Data on Your Mainframes

Thanks for joining us in Orlando! We look forward to seeing you again in Kansas City!

PK Protect for z/OS finds sensitive data using data definitions and copybooks for accurate discovery


PKWARE has solved the unsolvable problem by pinpointing where your vulnerable data resides in the middle of a massive unstructured binary stream, giving you and your privacy team one tool that finds and protects sensitive data, mitigates costly penalties, and cuts down manual workloads. 

This allows organizations to:

  • Automate manual processes for increased efficiency and address skill shortages
  • Meet regulatory guidelines and avoid costly penalties
  • Uncover sensitive data in environments that have been replicated from production, to test, and development for the past 60+ years, including orphaned data sets
  • Identify sensitive data before data migration between z/OS and the cloud / hybrid cloud

Persistent Encryption Protects Sensitive Data at Rest and in Motion


Protecting sensitive information is not just a requirement; it’s a critical component of an organization’s integrity and reliability. PK Encrypt’s persistent encryption addresses the fragmented workflow for sending sensitive information from z/OS to distributed environments (including hybrid cloud) by ensuring datasets are always encrypted and protected. PK Encrypt is 100% cross-platform compatible, making encrypted data exchanges with non-z/OS environments seamless.
