Cryptographic keys are some of your organization’s most precious assets. The value of any key is equivalent to the value of all the data it protects. If a key is compromised it’s game over! Attackers trying to hack systems can easily find cryptographic keys maintained in software. A single stolen or misallocated key could lead to a huge data breach with the consequential reputational damage, penal regulatory fines, and loss of investor and customer confidence.
When using HSMs to protect these keys, you add a robust layer of security, preventing attackers from finding them. nShield HSMs are specially designed to establish a root of trust, safeguarding and managing cryptographic keys and processes within a certified hardware environment. nShield HSMs, offered as an appliance deployed at an on-premises data center or leased through an as-a-service subscription, provide enhanced key generation, signing, and encryption to protect sensitive data and transactions.
Watch this 20 minute on-demand session to learn about how nShield HSMs help you:
• Achieve compliance - Meet and exceed widely recognized government and industry mandates for financial, healthcare and other sensitive data , such as FIPS, Common Criteria, GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI-DSS
• Apply policies - Role-based access control features allow you to apply policies for individual key containers, such as requiring a quorum of administrators to provide a smart card and PIN to unlock the key stored in the HSM
• Gain greater control - Use your own nShield HSMs in your own environment to create and securely export your keys to the cloud
• Achieve stronger security - Stronger key generation using nShield’s high-entropy random number generator protected by FIPS-certified hardware
