As businesses in most industries position for growth, they will require more encryption capability to protect sensitive data. Vantiv, the largest processor of PIN debit transactions in the United States* was experiencing explosive growth in their encryption-oriented transactions (PIN debit, ATM, etc). Because of this growth, they were experiencing scalability issues with their legacy encryption solution. They came to IBM and System z to help them solve their issues.
In the video, you will see how zEnterprise, with the IBM CryptoExpress processors, provided Vantiv with the ability to create tremendous encryption capacity for all operating platforms. Vantiv CIO Bob Barltett reviews some of the amazing results they achieved with this solution, such as enabling them to process 100M crypto transactions per day. This video shows how the use of CryptoExpress processors has helped Vantiv expand beyond a single purpose, mainframe only solution, to an enterprise wide encryption service. IBM will continue to improve the security and reliability of System z for customers, like Vantiv, demonstrating why System z is the ultimate security platform.
