Hardware Security Modules
In a world of increasing security risk, cryptography is more commonly used as a mechanism for providing security to the enterprise. Cryptography can provide organisations with a number of new challenges and issues if not deployed properly and to the appropriate areas of the organisation.
The protection, management and secure use of cryptographic keys are fundamental to the security delivered by encryption, digital signature and digital rights management systems. Thales nCipher’s FIPS-validated hardware security modules (HSMs), nShield and netHSM, meet these requirements for a host of commercial and custom-built business applications employing encryption, SSL, PKI or other cryptographic techniques.
ICT Security specialises in Thales E-Security SEE development for a range of customised customer solutions. ICT Security also specialises in the Thales nShield Connect series.
Thales nShield Connect, part of the nCipher product line, is a network-attached, general-purpose hardware security module (HSM) that protects up to 100 clients by safeguarding their encryption and digital signing keys and processing sensitive data on the trusted appliance.
nShield Connect enables enterprises to add hardware protection to critical applications such as public key infrastructures (PKIs), databases, web and application servers. Using standard cryptographic interfaces, nShield Connect integrates readily with Microsoft Certificate Services (PKI), Entrust Authority Security Manager, RSA Certificate Manager, Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, and many other applications.
