Next-Generation HSMs from Utimaco Deliver Stronger Cloud Security and Pave the Way for Post-Quantum Cryptography
Utimaco, the second largest Hardware Security Module (HSM) manufacturer in the world, is announcing its innovative CryptoServer Cloud HSM as a Service offering, as well as new hardware and several technology partnerships, including some around key advances in post-quantum cryptography (PQC). All this will be showcased at the annual RSA Conference being held in San Francisco beginning April 16.
- Launches uniquely flexible HSM as a Service offering with vXchnge allowing organizations in multi-cloud environments to be secure and ensure Cloud Service Provider independence.
- Partnership with ISARA showcases why leading experts in post-quantum research work with Utimaco HSMs.
Promise of Security with Cloud Service Provider (CSP) Independence
CryptoServer Cloud is a unique HSM as a Service developed by Utimaco and hosted by a leading neutral colocation data center services provider, vXchnge. This unique service, now available in North America, offers a safe repository for your cryptographic material and extremely sensitive and valuable assets -- such as custom code -- in a secure perimeter of an HSM in the cloud.
But more importantly, it provides a CSP-agnostic option for customers migrating to multi-cloud environments allowing them to securely store their cryptographic material in a separate location independent of the CSP.
“Utimaco HSM as a comprehensive platform, offers us the ability to support a wide range of data security compliance mandates and cryptographic algorithms for true crypto-agility in a simple-to-use and straightforward option for cloud-based applications,” said Jo Lintzen, VP of Business Development at Cryptomathic, a Utimaco partner using CryptoServer Cloud to support key management initiatives in multi-cloud environments.
Additionally, Utimaco unveils the CryptoServer LAN V5, a new 1U appliance designed to cut total cost of ownership for cloud applications. It reduces rack-space for HSM as a Service deployments in private or public clouds. This new appliance is equally attractive to CSPs or high-volume HSM users in industries like banking and financial services, DevOps; and for use cases like media streaming and Public Key Infrastructures (PKI).
Empowering Crypto-Agility for a Post-Quantum World
Utimaco HSMs are used by PQC experts from globally recognized, innovative companies like Microsoft, LG Electronics and ISARA to advance their PQC research. Utimaco’s Software Development Kit (CryptoServer SDK) has enabled these companies to efficiently integrate their PQC algorithms into the HSM firmware. This shows the Utimaco SDK is powerful and flexible enough to implement even the most complex algorithms designed for use on high-end computing platforms.
“The advent of a large-scale quantum computer will have catastrophic effects on information security, effectively breaking the foundation of digital trust. Since public key cryptography is so ubiquitous and invisible, seamlessly migrating systems to quantum-safe cryptography will take years due to the vast number of end-points and systems requiring an upgrade,” noted Mike Brown, CTO of ISARA who will be showcasing at RSA how Utimaco HSMs enable their post-quantum research.
“By creating a migration plan now, organizations and governments can prepare for the quantum threat without affecting their bottom line or end-user experience. Utimaco HSMs are a vital part of the complete implementation platform,” he continued.
To learn more about these new services, products and partnerships, visit Utimaco during RSA Conference from April 16 to 19 at South Hall Booth 1727. To register for a free Expo Pass, courtesy of Utimaco, use their special code X8EUTIMA on the RSA registration page.
HSMs are essential in protecting, managing and securing sensitive cryptographic assets, such as digital encryption keys, custom IP and asset access. Utimaco is now driving a new era as its HSMs are facilitating digital transformation in many key areas including, but not limited to, banking and payments, encryption and blockchain. Utimaco’s goal is to protect sensitive data assets in the eventual wake of quantum computing.
Utimaco is a leading manufacturer of Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) that provide the Root of Trust to many industries, from financial services and payment to the automotive industry, cloud services and the public sector. We keep cryptographic keys and digital identities safe protecting your critical digital infrastructures and high value data assets. Our products enable innovation and support the creation of new business by helping to secure critical business data and transactions.
Founded in 1983, today Utimaco HSMs are deployed across more than 80 countries in more than 1,000 installations. Utimaco employs a total of 200 people, with sales offices in Germany, the US, the UK and Singapore. For more information, visit https://hsm.utimaco.com/.
