Utimaco achieves FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation for u.trust Anchor, its next generation Root-of-Trust HSM platform

Aachen, Germany and Campbell (CA), February 15, 2022 – Utimaco, a leading global provider of IT security solutions, announces that its next generation Root-of-Trust HSM platform u.trust Anchor has been FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified by NIST.

FIPS certification is a regulatory requirement for many use cases in the target industries like Banking and Financial Services, telecommunication, automotive, government and enterprise, where not only the use of Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) is mandatory for the protection of sensitive data, but regulation also requires that the HSM are FIPS validated.

Customers in these industries can now benefit from all the advantages of the u.trust Anchor HSM platform, a robust and converged HSM platform for both payment and general purpose use cases. This HSM platform is simple to manage and provides end customers full control with best-in-class performance, unlimited key storage and auditability over their cryptographic keys, which are the Root-of-Trust in data protection and IT security. Customers can now deploy u.trust Anchor in a fully compliant way in environments and solutions mandating FIPS validation.

Mario Galatovic, Vice President Products & Alliances says: “Since its introduction to the market last year, we have received great feedback from our customers and partners for our next generation HSM platform u.trust Anchor. The validation against FIPS 140-2 Level 3 by NIST adds even further value, as u.trust Anchor now enables them to have certified high-performance flexibility as well as the opportunity to containerize the HSMs to solve today’s and tomorrow’s market problems. We expect to achieve additional certification, i.e. against Common Criteria and PCI/PCI HSM standards, in the near future.”
