Hardware security modules (HSMs) from Thales e-Security provide a hardened, tamper-resistant environment for performing secure cryptographic processing, key protection, and key management. With these devices you can deploy high assurance security solutions that satisfy widely established and emerging standards of due care for cryptographic systems and practices—while also maintaining high levels of operational efficiency. Use our HSMs with a wide variety of commercial software products and in-house or custom developed software systems. For virtually any system that employs cryptography in the form of encryption and digital signatures, a Thales HSM will enable you to overcome the security vulnerabilities and performance challenges typically associated with software-only cryptography. With HSMs from Thales, you buy only the capacity you need and can scale your solution easily as your requirements evolve. All Thales HSMs are certified by independent authorities, establishing quantifiable security benchmarks that give you confidence in your ability to support compliance mandates and internal policies. These HSMs are available in multiple form factors to support all common deployment scenarios ranging from portable devices to high-performance data center appliances. Turn to nShield HSMs for general-purpose security, and turn to payShield 9000 for leading payment system security. Whichever HSMs you choose, you will gain confidence in system security and streamline administration and regulatory compliance.
