About HSMs

SL247 introduces you to nShield HSMs – a family of hardware security modules (HSMs) from nCipher e-Security, the leading global provider of data protection solutions. nShield HSMs can protect the cryptographic operations and data of enterprise applications, providing a certified, hardened tamper-resistant environment for performing secure cryptographic processing and key applications that require a higher level of trust.


HSM may be useful if:

  • You are setting up or refreshing a public key infrastructure (PKI)
  • Your organisation is required to follow data privacy regulations
  • You are currently protecting critical applications using software-based cryptography and have need for stronger controls

nShield HSMs come in three type of factors levels:

  • A network-attached appliance for high-performance data centre environments - nShield Connect
  • A PCI server-embedded card for high-volume applications - nShield Solo
  • A USB-connected model for portable, low-volume and developer applications - nShield Edge
