IBM i (including AS/400, i Series, and System i) is an integrated operating environment run on the IBM Power Systems server platform designed to run business applications in an environment with preloaded core middleware intended to reduce setup effort and operational investment. IBM i supports virtual workloads, solutions from third-party ISVs, and IBM solutions such as DB2 and WebSphere.

Townsend Security's Alliance AES/400 encrypts sensitive data generated on the IBM i (formerly AS400) platform to help organizations secure their data immediately in order to meet their security and compliance obligations. Alliance AES/400 encryption APIs are capable of encrypting 1 million credit card numbers in less than one CPU second. 

Thales KeySecure and Thales ProtectApp integrates with Townsend Security's Alliance AES/400 encryption for centralized encryption key management. Because encryption and decryption is transparent, end users will not see any change to their experience - irrespective of the back-end database or file system in use, or the number of times data is backed up, stored, or copied. Whether it is unstructured data (such as Excel files and PDFs) or structured data (such as credit card number database fields), Thales and Townsend Security protects a wide range of sensitive data from applications running on IBM i.

DB2 for IBM i is an advanced relational database management system (RDBMS) that is pre-installed on the IBM i operating system. It supports applications and development environments running on the IBM i platform and uses several IBM Power System features, such as Dynamic Logical Partitioning, cost-based query optimizer, Capacity Upgrade on Demand, and PowerVM virtualization. The new FIELDPROC exit point in DB2 for IBM i allows users to secure sensitive application data with transparent encryption using third-party encryption APIs.

Townsend Security's Alliance AES/400 encryption allows customers to take advantage of the IBM I FIELDPROC exit point to protect sensitive data generated in IBM I’s DB2 database (formerly AS400). It encrypts and decrypts fields that store sensitive data with no application changes; there is also no need to reformat the database, or expand field sizes.

Thales KeySecure centralizes Townsend Security's Alliance AES/400’s encryption policy and key management to increase the level of control that administrators have over their data. Because encryption and decryption is transparent, end-users will not see any change to their experience and the data is secured in the database. In addition to the encryption solution for DB2 for IBM i,
