u.trust Anchor is a high performance Hardware Security Module-as-a-Service platform that enables businesses to stay ahead of IT security challenges while accelerating digital transformation
Aachen, Germany, July 13, 2022 – Utimaco, a leading global provider of IT security solutions, is proud to announce that its next generation Hardware Security Module (HSM) platform u.trust Anchor has been awarded both the NITES certification by the renowned Cyber Security Agency of Singapore and the Common Criteria certification by SCCS, the Singapore Common Criteria scheme. These high-level certifications of u.trust Anchor assure the security evaluation according to national and international standards to be used in highly sensitive environments, including the government sector.
Launched last year, u.trust Anchor is a robust, true multi-tenant, converged HSM platform with a unique capability of running up to 31 different fully isolated firmware stacks concurrently at the container level. It is also the first converged platform that enables service providers and enterprises to seamlessly scale performance or to run multiple applications – even with different certifications - completely independently on the same secure hardware, facilitating offerings such as HSM as a Service (HSMaaS) for payment and various general purpose use cases such as Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), Code Signing and Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) and Double Key Encryption (DKE).
u.trust Anchor enables every business to scale up and down according to its needs and to take advantage of the redundancy that it provides by creating a pool of HSMs that are geographically separated. Prior to achieving these additional certifications, the u.trust Anchor platform had already been awarded a FIPS 140-2 level 3 certification.
“Utimaco has a long history in applying best practices and industry standards to its products, and pursuing Common Criteria (CC) security certifications demonstrates our commitment towards achieving the highest security standards and compliance requirements,” says Mario Galatovic, Vice President Products and Alliances at Utimaco. “The u.trust Anchor platform and its security properties have been independently reviewed and issued a CC EAL4+ certification, giving our customers and partners a powerful tool for building trust into their digitalization use cases. Deploying the u.trust Anchor platform will ensure that government agencies, financial institutions, as well as entities from other verticals are implementing the most trusted and future-proof solutions into their infrastructure.”
Deval Sheth, Managing Director Asia Pacific at Utimaco, adds: “We have shown our commitment to the Singaporean standard and are very happy that these certifications confirm both Utimaco’s high standards for product quality and security, as well as Utimaco’s commitment to invest in meeting the requirements of Asian customers, especially in the government sector.”
