HSM as a Service

Reliable cybersecurity as a service – without maintenance and set-up efforts

A hardware security module is an ideal solution for businesses that require cryptographic processes for a variety of use cases, including data encryption, code signing, and digital signatures. The hardware security module generates, stores, and manages the cryptographic keys required for these use cases within its hardened environment. Typically, a hardware security module is deployed in a datacenter and managed by the cybersecurity or IT department of the organization.

Cybersecurity applications can be very complex and require extensive technical knowledge and expertise. This is not always provided in some companies - especially in view of the prevailing shortage of skilled workers. There is a solution for this challenge, which is called HSM as a Service.

With HSM as a Service, users can generate, use, and store cryptographic keys without having to worry about time-consuming things like evaluating, setting up, maintaining, and updating their own HSM. Instead, it is handled by experienced experts. The hardware itself is hosted in a secure datacenter and can be remotely managed by the customer.

Hardware Security Modules as a Service offers the following benefits:

  • Flexibility to scale:
    New HSMs are quickly available, and customers can build up their HSM portfolio flexibly according to their (changing) business needs
  • Reduction of CAPEX:
    Transferring CAPEX into OPEX, since no hardware purchases needed
  • Easy management
    The HSM can be remotely managed from the start, with no set-up efforts required
  • Service and support from the HSM vendor
    Direct access to expert knowledge is provided directly from the HSM vendor, and flexible support plans are available depending on the customers’ needs
  • No own datacenter needed
    Ideal for smaller companies who do not have an own datacenter where they can deploy their HSM
  • No setup and hardware efforts required
  • Multi-cloud ready
    Suitable for cloud applications, without being bound to one vendor – perfect for multi-cloud strategies.
