A Hardware Security Module is key to generate and store passwords, certificates, and encryption keys. Instead of having this critical information just stored in some file on your network server it is securely locked away in a HSM. So, even if your network is breached and your files are accessed, the most critical information, your passwords, certificates, and encryption keys are protected.
Securosys currently offers three different families of HSMs, the Primus S500 and the Primus X-Series and E-Series HSM. The Primus S500 is exclusively used in the Swiss Interbank Clearing System operated by SIX-SIC under the supervision of the Swiss National Bank (SNB). The Primus X-Series and E-Series HSM can be used for any application. When combined with the Decanus remote access device visits to the datacenter can be avoided as most operations can be performed remotely.
Both, the Primus X-Series and the Primus E-Series HSM are FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified. Please find the corresponding information on the NIST website.
